PhD Research Fellowship in Materials Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry / Centre for Materials Science and Nanotechnology (SMN).
Duration: The fellowship is for a period of three years.
About the Center: The Centre for Materials Science and Nanotechnology (SMN) is an interdisciplinary focus field for material & energy research at University of Oslo.
The project deals with 2D materials beyond grapheme. The objective is to establish fundamental relationships between the functional properties and composition, structure, and to defect chemistry of novel inorganic supported 2D thin films. The project comprises film deposition and characterization of inorganic films, with focus on electrical and electrochemical properties, supported by various computational techniques.
- Applicants must hold a Master’s degree or equivalent in chemistry / materials science / nanotechnology / physical / inorganic chemistry / solid-state electrochemistry, or thesis must be submitted and a degree under final evaluation.
- Background and experience in synthesis and characterization of materials, films, and interfaces are considered advantageous.
