(01) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title:  ERC-funded postdoc on the detection of organic radicals in the atmosphere

Organic radicals are key reaction intermediates in many chemical systems, such as the biochemistry of living organisms, organic synthesis and polymerisation, combustion systems, and the natural environment. But their detection is challenging, especially at the individual level, i.e. distinguishing between radicals with different organic structures. The European Research Council (ERC) Advanced project EPHEMERAL focuses on using real-time mass spectrometry (MS), such as Proton Transfer Mass Spectrometry (Ptr-MS), to detect individual organic radicals in the gas, in particular in the real atmosphere. We are seeking an outstanding candidate for a postdoctoral position on this project.

The position will involve some development and characterization (calibration …) of the instruments, performing experiments in gas-phase reactors in laboratory as well as measurements in the real atmosphere, and taking part in the deployment of the instrument in field campaigns. This position will be in the team of Prof. Nozière at the Department of Chemistry.

Deadline : 26.Mar.2024

(02) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc summary/title: Postdoc in design optimization of thermal technologies

To decarbonize the industrial sector, cost-effective solutions integrating renewable energy sources and energy storage are necessary. Moreover, most of the industries characterize for having large and variable heat requirements in their production processes, and so optimized thermal processes and technologies are paramount for their decarbonization, including for example heat pumps, electric heaters, thermal energy storage, and heat exchangers. The present work will focus on the design optimization, prototyping and testing of new thermal technologies, and more specifically in advanced compact and high-performance heat exchangers. Manufacturability, scalability, circularity, reliability, serviceability, seamless integration and costs shall be in scope in the design of these optimum new heat exchangers. In doing so, investigations will consider the use of additive manufacturing and selection of best materials also depending on the process requirements in terms of pressure, temperatures and thermal fluids involved. Cooperation with industrial partners in international projects is expected, including e.g. heat pumping, thermal energy storage and electric heater suppliers. Candidates shall have proven background and interest in heat transfer, thermodynamics, computational fluid dynamics and finite elements methods.

Deadline : 19.Mar.2024

(04) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc in Anthropocene History

The postdoc will be part of the new VR-funded Centre of Excellence for “Anthropocene History” at the Division of History of Science, Technology and Environment. In collaboration with the Center’s leadership and researchers, the postdoc will conduct research in Anthropocene history, a new research field that studies the origin, conditions, and consequences of the Anthropocene as the geological age of humans. This research field combines environmental history with the history of science and technology, environmental humanities, geology, earth system science and social sciences from the 16th century to the present, with an emphasis on the 20th-century interactions of environment with science, technology and society, and its significance for issues related to natural resources, climate, energy, biodiversity, toxicity and waste in transnational, global and planetary perspectives.

The postdoctoral researcher shall conduct research in history of science, technology or environment, or related areas of knowledge, with a particular focus on the emergence, conditions and consequences of the Anthropocene as the contemporary geological age of humankind, through empirical and analytical perspectives on the Anthropocene’s temporal, spatial, ideational, discursive, political, material or societal dimensions. On a smaller scale, teaching and tasks of a more administrative nature are included in the position.

(06) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Researcher in coordination of emobility

Driven by the environment concern and sustainable requirement, electric vehicles (EVs) have attracted global attention as they provide more environmentally friendly transportation. However, the large-scale utilization of EVs will greatly increase the electricity consumption in the grid. If charging of EVs are not managed, it will pose significant impact on grid and require expensive grid reinforcement. On the other hand, vehicle to grid (V2G) and smart charging will provide opportunities to minimize grid impact and provide grid support for smooth integration of EVs. Moreover, V2G can be integrated with renewables to form a virtual power plant (VPP) for enhanced sustainability and profits.

This project aims to develop efficient coordination and management of EVs and virtual power plants (VPPs) considering both technical and economic aspects. A software platform will be developed to demonstrate the results.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc in WWSC: New wood-based polymers for coatings and adhesives

Wallenberg Wood Science Center (WWSC) is a research center striving for scientific excellence, with a focus on new materials from trees. The center creates knowledge and builds competence for an innovative and sustainable future value creation from forest raw materials. WWSC is a multidisciplinary collaboration between KTH, Chalmers, and Linköping University. The base is a donation from Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, and the forest industry is supporting WWSC via the national platform Treesearch.

This project aims to use building blocks (small molecules) from wood-based raw materials to produce new materials that can replace fossil-based counterparts, especially with use in paint, varnish, adhesives and other corresponding applications where tailored surface properties are needed. The main focus will be on the (sequential) polymerization of small molecules, either as extracted from wood or after functionalization, using different polymerization processes and characterizing the properties of the resulting materials. The project is funded by the Wallenberg Wood Science Center (

About KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden – Official Website

KTH Royal Institute of Technology, abbreviated KTH, is a public research university in Stockholm, Sweden. KTH conducts research and education within engineering and technology, and is Sweden’s largest technical university. Currently, KTH consists of five schools with four campuses in and around Stockholm.

KTH was established in 1827 as Teknologiska Institutet (Institute of Technology), and had its roots in Mekaniska skolan (School of Mechanics) that was established in 1798 in Stockholm. But the origin of KTH dates back to the predecessor to Mekaniska skolan, the Laboratorium Mechanicum, which was established in 1697 by Swedish scientist and innovator Christopher Polhem. Laboratorium Mechanicum combined education technology, a laboratory and an exhibition space for innovations. In 1877 KTH received its current name, Kungliga Tekniska högskolan (KTH Royal Institute of Technology). The King of Sweden Carl XVI Gustaf is the High Protector of KTH.
