Text: Scientist position in advanced measurement techniques for termochemical conversion Västra Götalands län Ref REF 2018-0675 Apply Mail a friend Share Share Tweet Chemistry and Chemical Engineering is the largest department at Chalmers with research ranging from the most fundamental level to a level close to application in industry and society. The research activities reach from DNA-research and biomaterials to high temperature corrosion, catalysis and recycling. The Department is also heavily committed to teaching at the undergraduate, graduate, as well as postgraduate level in these areas. Health, natural resources, sustainable energy and materials are some of our lead words and our vision is “Through curiosity and knowledge towards a sustainable world”. We have approximately 300 employees, divided into four research and one administrative division. We are situated at campus Johanneberg in the middle of Gothenburg. Information about the division The Division of Energy and materials belongs to the Department of Chemistry and Chemical engineering. The research and education at Energy and materials is coupled to materials, energy, environment and sustainable development. The focus is on experimental and theoretical research within the area of material science as well as on development, use and evaluation of methods and tools for analysis of materials used for energy conversion. Major responsibilities As a scientist at the Division of Energy and materials you are an important part of a group that conducts experimental and theoretical research in energy conversion processes as well as corrosion processes. You will have a lot of freedom for research and analysis within given frames were we expect you to have worked with material characterization techniques and thermal conversion experiments before. You have also preferably been involved in research and development work involving solid fuel combustion or gasification and you have experience from field campaigns in these. The experimental research will be conducted both in our labs at the Division, but also at full scale industrial power plants, in collaboration with industry. Furthermore, we also use on a daily basis the material characterization techniques available at Chalmers state of the art Material Analysis Laboratory (CMAL). Position summary Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of two years. Qualifications You have a PhD-exam in Chemical Engineering, Engineering, Physics or similar. You are a person that are highly motivated and curious in finding explanations for observed phenomena in your research. You enjoy practical work, working within new fields, are solution-oriented and willing to learn new methods. As communication (orally and written) is important in many aspects of the work, which includes contact with our international collaboration partners and our industrial partners, you are expected to have excellent English language skills. You have high interpersonal skills, which also can be justified by previous employers upon request. Chalmers continuously strives to be an attractive employer. Equality and diversity are substantial foundations in all activities at Chalmers. Our offer to you Chalmers offers a cultivating and inspiring working environment in the dynamic city of Gothenburg .
