About the university
Uppsala University is an international research university focused on the development of science and education. Our most important assets are all the individuals who with their curiosity and their dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting work places. Uppsala University has 40,000 students, 7,000 employees and a turnover of SEK 6,5 billion.
An in-depth understanding of the interaction between molecules and inorganic materials at interfaces ‒ for example on catalysts, sensors or electrodes ‒ is important for the development of our high-tech society. This PhD project, which will be conducted within the Computational Materials Chemistry research group (www.teoroo.kemi.se), within the Structural Chemistry program, concerns research into how molecules (e.g. water) and inorganic materials interact at an interface and thereby induce changes in each other and alter the properties of the interface. Experimentalists try to characterise such changes using various spectroscopies and other techniques, and we develop models and methods to simulate spectral properties of direct relevance to experimentalists that we collaborate with.
The research group is active within the new European Materials Modelling Council and within CECAM as well as within the Swedish strategic research programme eSSENCE, which focuses on e-science and modelling.
Uppsala University aims for gender balance and diversity in all activities in order to achieve a higher quality at all levels of the organization. We therefore welcome applicants of any gender and with different birth background, functionality and life experience.
