at the Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry. Closing date: 30 November 2018.
Stockholm University, a modern university with a multicultural environment, is a world-leading institute with more than 35,000 students and 5,000 staff active within science, humanities and social sciences.
The research at the Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry (MMK – www.mmk.su.se) is centered on synthesis, processing, and the function of materials. Materials Chemistry is a leading research subject at Stockholm University, with a focus on porous, ceramic, soft materials, and on hybrid materials with renewable components. A large and growing part of the research revolves around materials with renewable components or an intended use in fossil-free energy applications.
In addition to laboratories for synthesis and characterization, MMK has equipment for processing of materials that involves e.g. electrospinning, freeze casting, and the facilities at the National Center for Spark-plasma Sintering. Structural characterization of materials constitutes a tradition at MMK, and important methods are X-ray, electron, and neutron scattering, scanning and transmission microscopy, and various spectroscopies.
Teachers at MMK give a number of undergraduate courses in Chemistry, and MMK hosts the Master’s Program in Materials Chemistry.
MMK is now making a strengthening and strategic recruitment of an Assistant Professor in Sustainable Materials Chemistry.
Sustainable materials chemistry involves studies of materials with renewable components or an intended use in fossil free energy applications.
