To be accepted as a Ph.D. student in Physics one should have studied at least four years at a University and have a B.Sc. in Physics. These studies must include advanced courses in physics during one year and an advanced degree project (a detailed description of one in progress may do). For a position in Chemical physics the requirement on physics courses may partly or fully be fulfilled with courses in chemistry. We seek a candidate with analytical capacity and good skills in English.

Terms of employment
A Ph.D. education is four years (48 months). The 4-year Ph.D. program includes at least 3 years of research and at most one year of course work. The position may be extended up to 1 year if up to 20 % teaching assistance or administration is included in the contract. During the beginning of the Ph.D. education, the student receives a study grant (“utbildningsbidrag”) and towards the end of the education, the student acquires a Ph.D. position (“doktorandanställning”).

Applications should include a letter of intent describing your motivation for applying including which research group or supervisor you prefer, a CV including information on previous education, a copy of the masters thesis (or “examensarbete”), other documents supporting the applicants competence and suitability for the position, and address, phone number and e-mail of two reference persons.
