PhD Position in Physical Chemistry

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 46.000 students, 7.300 employees and a turnover of SEK 7.3 billion.

The Department of Chemistry - Ångström conducts research and education in the chemistry field. The department has more than 200 employees and has a turnover of 200 million SEK. At the department's six programs, we conduct very successful research of a high international standard. We have a large number of externally funded research projects, often with international cooperation and we see continued good growth in our subject area. The department has education assignments in engineering and civil engineering programs and master's programs. More information is available on our website.

In the Physical Chemistry research program we conduct fundamental and goal oriented research mainly in photochemistry and chemical dynamics, laser spectroscopy as well as molecular and mesoscopic systems for solar energy conversion.

Subject description/research project:

The research project will focus on the investigation of excited state reactivity and luminescence properties of transition metal complexes for applications in solar energy conversion, photo redox catalysis and (electro)luminescent devices. These studies will involve in particular the exploration of ground and excites state electron transfer reactions of novel photosensitizers and luminophores with electrochemical and spectroscopic techniques, in particular time-resolved laser spectroscopic methods. For more information about the project’s background see our website.
