Work description

Theoretical research studies of the physical chemistry of natural waters (sea water etc.) and how this interacts with mineral interfaces. The work entails developing computational software and models for describing e.g. seawater and solid materials both at atomic and at more granular levels. There may also a possibility to extend the work to also cover physical chemistry experiments on the studied systems. The successful candidate will participate in external collaborations with academic and non-academic partners.


Experience with computer simulations (Metropolis Monte Carlo and Molecular Dynamics simulations) and models for electrolyte solutions is required.

Knowledge in chemistry of aquatic systems and environmerital chemistry is a merit. The studies require good math skills as well as experience with programming. The successful candidate should hold a degree in master of science.


Students with basic eligibility for third-cycle studies are those who- have completed a second-cycle degree- have completed courses of at least 240 credits, of which at least 60 credits are from second-cycle courses, or- have acquired largely equivalent knowledge in some other way, in Sweden or abroad.

The employment of doctoral students is regulated in the Swedish Code of Statues 1998: 80. Only those who are or have been admitted to PhD-studies may be appointed to doctoral studentships. When an appointment to a doctoral studentship is made, the ability of the student to benefit from PhD-studies shall primarily be taken into account. In addition to devoting themselves to their studies, those appointed to doctoral studentships may be required to work with educational tasks, research and administration, in accordance with specific regulations in the ordinance.

Type of employment

Limit of tenure, four years according to HF 5 kap 7ยง.
