(03) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Ph.D. Student position in Chemistry with focus on Molecular Geochemistry

This Ph.D. project is on the mineralization of CO2 by MgO and CaO minerals, and is funded by the Formas. The selected candidate will explore mechanisms of Mg- and Ca-carbonate formation on MgO and CaO (nano)minerals exposed to the atmosphere. This research aims to support direct air capture technologies for mitigating hikes in atmospheric CO2 levels, as well as advancing fundamental ideas on mineral growth. This work will make use of various spectroscopic methods, X-ray diffraction and possibly computational modelling techniques available at Umeå University. The candidate will integrate the Molecular Geochemistry ( research environment of the Department of Chemistry ( and work with various analytical platforms of the Chemical and Biological Center (
