6 PhD positions in Physical, Inorganic, Materials and Environmental Chemistry at the Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry. Reference number SU FV-1026-13 (project numbers – see below).
Deadline for applications: May 2, 2013.
Application to the graduate research program (PhD studies) at MMK, April 2013
The Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry (MMK), www.mmk.su.se, offers 6 new places for graduate students after an application procedure as described below.
The extensive research activities of MMK, hosting the Berzelii Center EXSELENT for development of nanoporous materials for catalysis, span over Materials and Solid State Chemistry focusing on different classes of materials; e.g. ceramics and glasses, self-assembled and porous materials, and soft matter.
The work often encompasses synthesis, characterisation by X-ray diffraction and electron microscopy, NMR studies, modelling with computer simulations of materials with a potential for various applications.
Environmental aspects are an important part of the research activities, where refined natural or anthropogenic inorganic and organic chemicals and materials are studied in relation to their sole or combined impact on, and interaction with biological and non-biological systems in our global environment.
