Skilled and committed employees are a crucial factor in the success of Linköping University. And we need more of them. Our core expertise comes from teachers and researchers, but a successful university requires experienced and motivated employees in many fields. Everyone is important. We need to recruit many new employees thanks to, among all, an expansion in our research activity. We need you here. We look forward to receiving your application!

At the Department of Science and Technology, at the university’s Norrköping campus, we provide education and conduct research in physics and electronics, communications/logistics and media- and information technology. The department is recognised for its work in fields including logistics, visualisation and organic electronics. We combine academic excellence with fruitful collaboration with the Community.

We are looking for a principal research engineer in organic nanoelectronics within the department of Science and Technology, in the group of Organic Nanoelectronics, at Campus Norrköping. 

Your future workplace
In the Laboratory of Organic Electronics (LOE) we explore electronic and optical properties of organic semiconductors, biomaterials from the forest and hybrid organic materials. We share a common interest in exploiting the combination of electronic and ionic charge for use in energy, internet-of-things, health care and biology applications. Our research topics include synthesis, material science, theory and modeling, device physics, nanotechnology, biotechnology and system design. Our activities span the range from basic research to commercialization, the latter carried out in close collaboration with RISE Acreo. LOE currently has ~100 researchers and research students divided into eleven units, each led by a principal investigator.You will work in the group of Organic Nanoelectronics which is part of the Laboratory of Organic Electronics.
