The Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience focuses on research, innovation and education within the fields of future electronics, photonics, bio- and nanosystems. A close collaboration with Swedish and international partners within academia, industry and society enables scientific excellence and creates an innovative environment. In addition to the 200 researchers and PhD students, MC2 houses a cleanroom for micro- and nanofabrication with the latest equipment.

Information about the division
In the Micro- and Nanosystems group of the Electronics Materials and Systems Laboratory (EMSL) we conduct research on the preparation of micro- and nanostructured materials in order to realise devices for a broad range of applications. We are currently engaged with energy harvesting and energy storage for intelligent wireless sensors exploiting nanofibrous materials based on carbon. We have started activities on particle detection using light scattering in collaboration with the University of Delft. We also work with micromachined metamaterials for high frequency electronic systems.

Major responsibilities
As a new co-worker in our group you would work together in a team with Professors and students to develop a particle detection device, but you would be expected to have the capacity to make good progress also independently. Your major responsibilities are to contribute to generating scientific output (published in scientific journals and presented at conferences), to share responsibility for fulfilling project deliverables and to provide assistant supervision to PhD and MSc students.

Position summary
Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of two years. A monthly salary is paid.

To qualify for the postdoctoral position, you must be a PhD with a profile towards microsystems technology and furthermore have recent experience of both microfabrication in a cleanroom as well as simulations of light scattering from microscopic particles. You need to be fluent in English and should be able to demonstrate excellent team-working skills as well as a high capacity to carry out advanced experimental work.

Chalmers continuously strives to be an attractive employer. Equality and diversity are substantial foundations in all activities at Chalmers.
