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 due to retirement among our current staff and an expansion in our research activity. We need you here. We look forward to receiving your application!

The Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biology conducts research and offers education at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Research, the predominant activity, is often done in collaboration with corporate and international partners. We are one of the university's largest, oldest and most well known departments, encompassing five interacting scientific fields: biology, chemistry, material physics, applied physics and theory and modelling.

Hereby advertises a position as

PhD student in Semiconductor Materials
formally based at Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biology, IFM

The work focuses around metal organic vapor phase deposition (MOVPE) of group III nitride semiconductor materials on GaN substrates and GaN templates for power electronic applications. The templates are made by Lund University using a coalescing nanowire technique resulting in very high quality GaN material. The work will also involve modeling to make predictions of measurable properties and outcomes from the MOVPE process, such as deposition and doping distributions, and growth rates. Advanced structural characterization including transmission electron microscopy and x-ray diffraction will also be employed.

The PhD work will be performed in close collaboration with Lund University, Chalmers University, the Terahertz Materials Analysis Center (THeMaC) - IFM, and the Centre for Group III Nitride Technology (C3NiT) - IFM, which includes several industrial partners (ABB, On Semiconductor, Saab). The applicant must therefore be able to work efficiently in a group, engage and cooperate with our academic and industrial partners, and actively direct the research toward commercialization.

As a PhD student you will primarily devote yourself to your research. As a PhD student you are limited to work with education and administration up to 20 percent of full time.

We are looking for a highly motivated candidate who should hold master degree in Physics, Materials Science, or Electrical Engineering. Knowledge in semiconductor materials and solid-state physics is required. Experience with some characterization techniques of semiconductor materials is especially of merit. Good knowledge of English, written and spoken, is necessary for publications and presentations of research results in international journals and at conferences.

Qualified to PhD studentships are only those who are or have been admitted to graduate studies.

Appointment time
The appointment will be until further notice for a maximum of one year at a time. A doctoral student may not be employed during a period exceeding eight years. The total time of appointment must not exceed the equivalent of four years ' full time research training.

Starting date
By agreement.

The salary for PhD students is based on the department's salary scale.

Union representatives
For contact with union representatives see below.

Application procedure
Apply for the position by clicking the "Apply" button below. Your application must be received at latest July 30, 2018.

The application should include motivation letter, CV, transcript of grades and references. Translations of the original documents into English or Swedish is required, if they are not written in any of these languages.

Applications and documents received after the date above will not be considered.

Equal opportunities
A majority of our PhD students within Semiconductor Materials are men, which is why precedence will be given to women in cases where qualifications are deemed otherwise equivalent.

Linköping University will continue to develop as an attractive and creative place of work, characterized by equal terms and actively works for equality and diversity.

We look forward to receiving your application!

Linköping university has framework agreements and wishes to decline direct contacts from staffing- and recruitment companies as well as from vendors of job advertisements.
