The position holder will establish a strong research program within graphene and other 2D materials, including efficient production, characterization, and device fabrication. Furthermore, the person filling the position is expected to actively apply for- and attract external funding and to cooperate with national and international research partners.

The position includes teaching on all levels, as well as supervising Masters- and PhD students. The position involves research and teaching. A special emphasis is on the graphene fabrication techniques and research, also including other 2D materials and their combinations with graphene making functional heterostructures for various functional devices.

The position corresponds to a full-time tenured employment. Applicants must hold a PhD in Physics, Engineering Physics or Chemistry.  The position requires that previous postdoc position(s) outside the applicant's home University the involved qualified research which has resulted in several well-cited publications. Such an evidence for ability to conduct research at an international level is essential. Experience of teaching and mentoring students at all levels and development of pedagogical methods is mandatory. Prior experience in graphene growth/device fabrication/usage is highly meritous, as well as experience with CVD technique and microfabrication of semiconductor- or photonic devices.

It is valuable to have a network of academic and industrial contacts, international experience of teaching outside Sweden as well as experience in refereeing publications and organizing conferences/workshops. The successful applicant needs to have personal characteristics such as independency, excellent collaborative skills and an ability to communicate results in writing and presentations, also to non-experts. The position requires proficient verbal and written communication skills in Swedish and English. If Swedish is not your native language, you must be able to teach in Swedish on undergraduate level after two years. Chalmers offers Swedish courses. Chalmers continuously strives to be an attractive employer. Equality and diversity are substantial foundations in all activities at Chalmers.
