Postdoctoral scholarship: Develop understanding in the photophysics/chemistry of triplet-triplet annihilation photon upconversion or strong exciton-photon coupling

News: Jun 02, 2020

The Department of Chemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Gothenburg, offers a postdoctoral scholarship: Develop understanding in the photophysics/chemistry of triplet-triplet annihilation photon upconversion or strong exciton-photon coupling.

You will pursue research at the cutting edge of chemistry, physics and materials science. The project will either explore the phenomena of strong exciton photon coupling using organic molecules or triplet-triplet annihilation photon upconversion. The focus will be on developing understanding of the processes as to drive state-of-the-art forward. After project completion, you will have developed a thorough understanding of the complex physics involved in these processes. To do this, you will have access to the complete research lab of the Börjesson group, which involves steady state and time resolved absorption and emission setups. Furthermore, you will model experimental data by scripting in Matlab/python/origin or similar programs. For more information on the group, see: www.molecularmaterials.se

Dnr: GU 2020/1654

Scholarship period: The scholarship covers a period of 12 months with possibility of prolongation up to a maximum of 24 months in total.

Preliminary start date: 2020-10-01 but quite flexible.

Supervisor/contact person: Karl Börjesson, 0046 (0)766229099, Karl.borjesson@gu.se

Qualifications:
* To be eligible for a post-doc scholarship at the recipient must hold a PhD degree within a relevant field. The applicant must not have been employed at University of Gothenburg in the past two years.
* You will explore the phenomena of triplet-triplet annihilation photon upconversion or strong exciton-photon coupling using organic molecules. You will have a phd within chemistry or physics, and have practical experience of optical spectroscopy (steady-state and time-resolved), preferable but not limited to organic molecules. A commitment to understand physical process and developing state-of-the-art within the subject of study is of importance.

Written application, including reference number, is to be sent via e-mail to the supervisor and must include the following:
* CV
* Personal letter stating the reasons why the study suits the applicant (maximum one page)
* List of publications
* References (2)

Application deadline: 2020-08-09.

Information regarding scholarships:
* Scholarships do not give rise to sickness benefits, compensation from the Social Insurance Office or retirement pension.
* The scholarship sum is paid out quarterly
* Scholarships are tax-exempt
* A scholarship holder cannot be hired after the scholarship period due to tax reasons.
