PhD position summary/title: PhD student in Biochemistry (MSCA COFOUND project PRISMAS)

If we could mimic nature’s use of metals for harvesting sunlight, energy conversion, and chemical synthesis it would eliminate the need for fossil fuels and greatly increase the possibilities of green chemistry. These reactions are based on challenging redox reactions by high-valent metal clusters in proteins. To understand and mimic this chemistry it is of central importance to know the geometric and electronic structures of the metal core as well as the protein ligand environment for these reactive intermediates. In this project we combine serial X-ray crystallography with X-ray spectroscopy (XAS/XES) on proteins in-solution and in-crystal to determine electronic and atomic structures of key intermediates in enzymes utilizing dinuclear metal sites for chemically very challenging reactions. The results will be of interest for both basic and applied science in health and biomimetic catalysis.

PhD position summary/title: PhD student in Environmental Science focusing on Microbiome of aquatic organisms in ecotoxicological context

Microorganisms are ubiquitous and present in animal microbiomes. From an ecotoxicological perspective, they are a metabolically active biological compartment that responds to environmental stressors, with downstream effects on host metabolism and development. The microbiota can both alleviate toxicity for the host via, for example, biotransformation, and reinforce the adverse effects via, for example, disrupted microbiome-host interactions and enhancing uptake of hazardous substances. Acknowledging these interactions is essential for a mechanistic understanding of host responses and developing ecologically relevant effect-based methods for environmental status assessment.

PhD position summary/title: PhD student in Environmental Science focusing on modelling plastic in the environment

In this PHD project, the successful applicant will contribute to the development of an evolving suite of process-based models of plastic pollution based on mass balance principles.  Plastic pollution in the environment is composed of materials with a wide range of properties, composition, size, and shape.  And, plastic in the environment generates a “chemical halo” of leached additives and polymer degradation products, and attracts a “biological halo” of microorganisms and algae.  Understanding the potential environmental impacts of plastic requires knowledge of environmental exposure to the complex physical, chemical and biological footprint of pollution it causes.  Process-based models confront this challenge by describing the complex pollution footprint produced by plastic, and by providing a platform for synthesizing scientific understanding about sources, environmental processes, transport pathways, and concentrations of different forms of plastic pollution.

PhD position summary/title: PhD student in Environmental Science focusing on atmospheric aerosol-cloud-precipitation interactions

The interplay between atmospheric liquid or solid aerosol particles and clouds is a key theme in climate research. Aerosol particles originating from various natural and anthropogenic sources act as cloud condensation nuclei or ice nuclei for cloud droplets and ice crystals to form on. Consequently, the human influence on atmospheric aerosol loadings are likely to result in perturbations in the extent and properties of clouds. This effect is still poorly understood. Despite large effort during past decades, the processes controlling aerosol-cloud interactions and explaining observed changes are not yet fully understood. The microphysical properties and chemical composition of aerosol particles, and their interaction with water vapour and meteorology represent a complex system with multiple simultaneous interactions. It is one of the major challenges of atmospheric science to understand this complex system and use it to improve predictions of future climate.

PhD position summary/title: PhD student in Atmospheric sciences and oceanography, focus climate modelling

Precipitation extremes, or precipitation that much exceeds the normal level, are weather events that significantly influence people and society. With global warming, precipitation extremes are expected to increase. Today’s climate models, however, typically have too coarse resolution to explicitly resolve the storms and frontal systems that bring the precipitation. The sensitivity of extreme precipitaiton to increasing temperature is therefore still an open question. The ongoing development of global scale cloud resolving climate models offer unique opportunities to understand future changes in precipitation extremes. This project will combine data analysis with model development to better understand and simulate precipitation under changing climate conditions.

PhD position summary/title: PhD students in Sustainability Science (2) (A)

The overall objective of the project is to understand how severe and widespread loss of water resilience in the Anthropocene impacts distant countries through biophysical and socioeconomic flows (e.g., water, carbon, trade). The two PhD candidates will explore two subtopics within the project: (1) water’s role for Earth resilience and (2) teleconnections of water resilience. The candidates may choose to focus on one of the subtopics or address both. With regard to topic (1), research tasks could include the quantification of: resilience loss in terrestrial ecosystems and production systems following hydroclimatic change; impacts of ecosystem restoration and other land-based climate change mitigation measures on the water and carbon cycle; and cascading and amplifying impacts of land and water interventions. With regard to topic (2), research tasks could include exploring the resilience loss through socio-economic (international trade) and biophysical connectivity (land-rainfall feedbacks such as through moisture recycling) and the role of network structures and connectivity for the propagation of water resilience risks under climate change.

PhD position summary/title: PhD student in Sustainability Science (B)

The overall objective is to explore telecoupled risks for water resilience and the necessary governance arrangements to both prevent or navigate those risks as they emerge. Connections between distant countries (teleconnections) can be biophysical (e.g., through atmsophere processes) and socioeconomic (e.g., through trade with water dependent commodities). Such connectivity often remains difficult to track in real-time but has impacts on sustainability, equity, and social justice. The project will rely on qualitative and quantitative methods to analyse historical cases of telecoupled water challenges (e.g. acid rain, drought) to understand place-based responses and the interdependencies across distant places. The case study results can be used as basis for projecting a range of possible governance responses to future teleconnected risks across the multiple scales. The research can study governance at different levels, e.g., international law, regional or global cooperation mechanisms, trade and trade initiatives (e.g., www.trase.earth) and other innovative governance initiatives that support sustainability and social justice.

PhD position summary/title: PhD student in Sustainability Science (C)

The main purpose of this project is detecting where on Earth regime shifts are likely to occur. Doing so requires identifying possible regime shifts and estimating resilience of ecosystems. Regime shifts occur when resilience – the ability to absorb disturbance without losing function and structure – is eroded and the system easily crosses thresholds that marks the onset of new ecological configurations. This project will attempt to develop an early warning system of tipping points for global ecosystems. The project involves harmonizing data streams of biophysical and socio-economic data globally, applying known early warning methods (e.g. critical slowing down), and improving them with machine learning. The project aims to develop new methods for under studied areas of the world and quantify tipping points through dose-response curves.

PhD position summary/title: PhD student in Physical Geography: Monitoring and risk assessment of Swedish water resources

Inland still waters provide key ecosystem services to humans, whether natural, such as lakes and wetlands, or anthropogenic such as reservoirs. Since freshwater supply, storage, and water power for electricity are the most relevant services for humans, the waters providing these services are the most monitored. However, most inland waters remain unmonitored. For instance, less than 1% of all lakes is being monitored in Sweden. Unmonitored inland still waters are already facing threats from accelerated Earth system change, driven by direct human activities and climate change. Worryingly, the effects of Earth system change on unmonitored water resources remain unknown. Water levels in still waters may be already changing beyond their thresholds for ecosystem service provision. Although future plans exist to monitor still inland waters, there is an increasing need to observe and quantify the latest and ongoing hydrological changes in still inland waters. Such monitoring is the only way to determine climate-related risks to water supply and resources.

Project title: Porous polymers for direct air capture.

Supervisors: Prof. Jiayin Yuan (main supervisor); Dr. Miao Zhang (co-supervisor).

CO2 capture, storage and utilization is needed to mitigate the rapid rise in the atmospheric CO2 concentration. A key challenge is the gigantic mass of CO2 emitted, which asks for efficient and economically viable approaches that are currently missing and limited by the lack of suitable materials. To break through this barrier, this project aims to develop porous polymers to extract CO2 directly from air, the so-called direct air capture (DAC). This project will advance scientific knowledge and prepare the materials base to this negative emission technology.

Project title: Design, synthesis and structure characterization of novel porous materials advanced by AI and high-throughput electron diffraction.

Supervision: Prof. Xiaodong Zou (main supervisor), Dr. Taimin Yang (assistant supervisor).

Nanoporous materials such as zeolites and metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have well-defined pore structures and can act as molecular sieves based on their size and shape. They have wide applications in for example selective adsorption, separation and catalysis. Knowning the structure of porous materials is crucial for understanding their properties and identifying their potential applications. Electron diffraction (ED) has unique advantages in studying nano- and micron-sized crystals too small for X-ray diffraction. Recent developments of 3D ED/MicroED have revolutionalized crystallography, and can provide unique opportunities for the discovery of new materials. Prof. Zou’s group has been working on developing new 3D ED and SerialED/SerialRED methods in order to make phase analysis and structure determination fully automated with high-throughput, high-resolution, and high-accuracy.
