PhD position summary/title: PhD student in limnology with focus on the climate footprint of macrophytes

Most rivers are highly degraded ecosystems, but there is a large movement to restore them. The restoration of streams and rivers includes the establishment of wetlands, and the removal of dams, which benefits biodiversity and water quality. Both restoration practices entail the expansion of aquatic plants (macrophytes), which can act as strong greenhouse gas sources, but which also sequester carbon and thus act as carbon sinks. The overall climate footprint of macrophytes is at present insufficiently understood. The CLIMIPHY project will investigate the greenhouse gas emission as well as carbon sequestration of different species and communities of macrophytes, in order to enable river restoration practitioners to design plantation schemes that maximize the intended benefits for biodiversity and water quality at minimal climate footprint.

PhD position summary/title: PhD student in experimental brain tumor research

The overarching goal is to develop a new innovative therapy for the incurable brain cancer glioblastoma (GB) by investigating and targeting the locally invasive GB edge cells. GB is the most frequent and aggressive primary malignant brain tumor and most patients die within one year of diagnosis of a tumor relapse that occurs in close proximity to the resection cavity of the primary tumor. While GB bulk cells have been frequently studied there is little knowledge of the peritumoral GB edge cells. The project aims are to collect, culture and perform functional, molecular and bioinformatic investigations of GB edge cells to map their intra- and intertumor heterogeneity, biology and vulnerabilities. Based on this information we will develop therapeutic strategies to target GB edge cells.

(05) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD position in Microgrids management evaluation using Real Time Simulation

The main idea of this project is to use dynamic simulation to investigate the impact on the power grid caused by Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) – such as Electric Vehicles, and suggest control techniques to minimise the problems, which can be verified and validated by using real time simulation/control in the loop simulation. The simulation seeks to reproduce the user’s consumption profile, stipulating an analysis of the results considering a massive insertion of electric vehicles in the electrical grid (at medium and low voltage levels). Furthermore, the study of storage systems is strategic when contemplating a network with several electric vehicles and different forms of renewable energy generation. Due to the uncertainty and variation of renewable energy sources (RESs), the optimization of the stationary energy storage systems are required and indispensable for the future of the current energy matrix to reduce the fluctuation of RESs. The research group at Uppsala University has extensive experience of research in power systems and a large laboratory activity. We have an exciting work environment designed by the doctoral student and the research team together. The doctoral student will be supervised by at least two supervisors.

(07) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD in the design of cathode-electrolyte interphases for durable and safe high-energy density lithium-ion batteries

The primary duty focus of this PhD project will be on designing superior cathode-electrolyte interphases to enhance the durability and safety of high energy-density lithium-ion batteries. This involves understanding the effects of cathode surfaces and liquid electrolyte formulations on the formation and evolution of cathode-electrolyte interphase (CEI) and the related ageing mechanisms and thermal stability. The interfacail behaviours in lithium-ion battereis are complicated and involve several chemical and electrochemical reactions dertermining the electrochemical performance and safety issues of battereis. The purpose therefore is to realize durable and safe high energy-density batteries by controlling the cathode and electrolyte in order to determine the key parameters for the formation of robust CEIs. The project will require use of advanced electrochemical methods and analytical tools such as X-ray photoelectron / absorption spectroscopies, electron microscopy and mass spectroscopy as well as thermal analysis techniques. Different aspects of cathode and electrolyte will be investigated including physico-chemical properites of Ni-rich cathode material (e.g. surface composition and morphology) and electroltye components (e.g.additives), the influence of temperature and operating voltages. The ultimately, this project aims to fill knowledge gaps in the battery field and take the next steps in the design and regulation of electrode-electrolyte interfaces for durable and safe lithium-ion batteries.

(08) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD student in Environmental Physics

Detailed studies will be undertaken to assess the potential radioactive releases from the ESS, a large neutron research facility under construction in Lund, Sweden. The ESS will produce neutrons using a powerful particle accelerator, impinging 2 GeV protons on a tungsten target. The nuclear reactions will also produce many radioactive by-products, such as isotopes of W, Hf, Ta, Gd and Lu. These radionuclides may be released in the environment after a severe accident, and be transferred from soil to plants cultivated in the local farmlands, with potentially harmful health effects. The project will be jointly conducted by the Ion-physics group at Uppsala University (Sweden), Medical Radiation Physics Malmö at Lund University (Sweden), the Biotechnical Faculty at the University of Ljubljana (Slovenia), and the Department of Low and Medium Energy Physics at the Jožef Stefan Institute (Slovenia). The successful applicant will be based at the University of Uppsala, but is expected to spend time at all institutions involved in the project. The Ion-physics Group at Uppsala University employs beams of swift ions to study their interaction with materials in solid and gaseous forms at an atomic and molecular level. These methods permit the determination of concentrations and depth profiles of atoms and molecules in a material with very high accuracy for samples from biological, environmental and technological contexts. A 5 MV tandem accelerator, a 350 kV high current ion implanter and a Low-Energy Ion Scattering System form the experimental platform. The Environmental Radiology group at Medical Radiation Physics Malmö (Lund University) has extensive experience in the monitoring of radioactivity in the environment via in-situ and laboratory measurements but also through modelling and simulations. The group’s infrastructures include laboratories for the chemical preparation and the analysis of environmental samples by radiometric techniques. The group also has ongoing collaboration on environmental monitoring with the ESS and links to the Lund University research infrastructures (AMS, ICP-MS…). This group will also provide modelling of the radiation doses incurred by the consumption of crops contaminated by accident release from ESS. The Biotechnical Faculty of the University of Ljubljana, the largest Slovenian University, is a public education and research organisation with nine separate departments, together covering numerous life sciences disciplines. Plant growth facility and sample preparation equipment and expertise required for the execution of the project are available at the Department of Agronomy and the Department of Biology, respectively, where all plant material will be processed and prepared for further analyses. The Department of Low and Medium Energy Physics at the Jožef Stefan Institute, the leading Slovenian scientific research institute, manages the Microanalytical Centre where research with accelerated ion beams is conducted. Among ion beam analysis techniques available, micro-particle induced X-ray emission (micro-PIXE) end-station is routinely used to determine distribution of elements in biological tissues in a quantitative manner at micrometre resolution.  In addition, a table-top micro-XRF is available for larger scan areas when poorer resolution (>15 micrometre) suffices. Both apparatus will be used for the detection of elements and their allocation in plant tissues.

PhD position summary/title: PhD student in 2D quantum materials (MSCA COFUND project PRISMAS)

Two-dimensional (2D) material van der Waals (vdW) heterostructures exhibit extraordinary quantum traits for next-generation nanoelectronics, spintronics, and optoelectronic applications. The project aims to investigate the quantum (electronic, phononic, and magnonic) properties and phenomena in novel directly-chemical vapor deposited 2D material heterostructures and their functionalized defect-passivated systems, and develop innovative devices. Here we will explore a new direct growth of 2D material heterostructures, for example, semiconducting MoS2 on graphene. Recently, we have innovated the growth of composite 2D heterostructures by nucleation-defined chemical vapor deposition. In this project, we specifically aim to probe the electronic structure of these new quantum materials via advanced x-rays spectroscopic tools, such as angle-resolved photoemission (ARPES), resonant inelastic x-ray scattering (RIXS), ambient pressure x-ray photoemission spectroscopy (APXPS), nano and micro-(ARPES), to uncover the band structure and surface charge transfer in directly CVD-grown 2D heterostructures of MoS2 over graphene and 2D magnets (Chromium Telluride) over graphene. This will help in understanding spin-orbit coupling and its influence on the electronic and magnonic (involving magnetic 2D materials) band structure in 2D heterostructures. In addition, the project will involve the investigation of defect passivation by chemical treatments on CVD-grown 2D materials. These objectives will impact the understanding of the properties of the directly grown 2D heterostructures and engineering their properties for efficient next-generation optoelectronic and spintronics devices, which will be innovated with these quantum materials. This project is expected to significantly contribute to pushing the boundaries of 2D quantum materials.

PhD position summary/title: PhD student in Computational Mechanics, fracture modelling of batteries

In service, significant deformations develop in lithium-ion battery electrodes during cycling, resulting in microscopic cracks leading to decreased capacity and battery lifespan. The understanding of why, where and how these cracks develop and grow is limited. In this joint research project, conducted at the interface between mechanics and chemistry, we use multiphysics computer models to study deformation mechanisms in battery electrodes, supported by highly resolved synchrotron X-ray CT crack experiments. The project is expected to increase the understanding of battery cracking and its dependency on electrode morphology, particle positions and electrochemical cycling, and open for a design change of the electrode microstructure to increase batteries capacity and lifespan. The project is thus a vital contribution to the development of tomorrow’s batteries.

About Uppsala University, Sweden –Official Website

Uppsala University  is a research university in Uppsala, Sweden. Founded in 1477, it is the oldest university in Sweden and all of the Nordic countries still in operation. It has ranked among the world’s 100 best universities in several high-profile international rankings during recent years. The university uses “Gratiae veritas naturae” as its motto and embraces natural sciences.

The university rose to pronounced significance during the rise of Sweden as a great power at the end of the 16th century and was then given a relative financial stability with the large donation of King Gustavus Adolphus in the early 17th century. Uppsala also has an important historical place in Swedish national culture, identity and for the Swedish establishment: in historiography, literature, politics, and music. Many aspects of Swedish academic culture in general, such as the white student cap, originated in Uppsala. It shares some peculiarities, such as the student nation system, with Lund University and the University of Helsinki.

Uppsala belongs to the Coimbra Group of European universities and to the Guild of European Research-Intensive Universities. The university has nine faculties distributed over three “disciplinary domains”. It has about 44,000 registered students and 2,300 doctoral students. It has a teaching staff of roughly 1,800 (part-time and full-time) out of a total of 6,900 employees. Twenty-eight per cent of the 716 professors at the university are women. Of its turnover of SEK 6.6 billion (approx. USD 775 million) in 2016, 29% was spent on education at Bachelor’s and Master’s level, while 70% was spent on research and research programs.

Architecturally, Uppsala University has traditionally had a strong presence in Fjärdingen, the neighbourhood around the cathedral on the western side of the River Fyris. Despite some more contemporary building developments further away from the centre, Uppsala’s historic centre continues to be dominated by the presence of the university.
