Sort on published: 2018-03-19
Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong international standing. Our mission is to pursue top-quality research and education and to interact constructively with society. Our most important assets are all the individuals whose curiosity and dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has 42,000 students, 7,000 employees and a turnover of SEK 6.7 billion.
The Department of Physics and Astronomy is the second largest at Uppsala University with more than 350 employees and 11 different divisions and is situated at Ångström Laboratory in Uppsala. The Department was formed in January 2010 by merging the former Department of Physics and Astronomy with the Department of Physics and Materials Science.

Uppsala University hereby declares the following position, at the Department of Physics and Astronomy, starting June 2018, to be open for application: PhD position in materials physics at the Department of Physics and astronomy / inorganic Chemistry - Additive manufacturing of amorphous metals
Information about the project
The project concerns the fabrication and characterization of amorphous materials using additive manufacturing (AM, often called 3D printing). The influence of process parameters on resulting materials properties, such as structural, mechanic and magnetic properties, is at the core of the planned activity. Combinatorial materials research platform will be used to accelerate the development of new alloys, which involves the use of modern deposition techniques and characterization tools. The use of atomic probes is expected to be central in the work, through a collaboration with Prof. Jochen Schneider, Aachen, Germany. Competence within that area is therefore
The work will be based within the Materials Physics and Inorganic Chemistry, which have a long experience in preparing thin film samples with atomically controlled interfaces as well as advanced magnetic and physical characterization. The Ph.D. work is connected to a large collective effort within the field of AM involving several research groups in the Ångström Laboratory. Ability to collaborate is therefore of importance.
Position summary and Application
The applicant should have a Master’s degree in physics, or equivalent.
The PhD position is funded for four years, and may including department duties at a level of at most 20% (typically teaching). Further information is available at: http://www.physics.uu.se/education/gradU/.
