Postdoctoral Fellowship in Materials Science and Mineralogy 2412 views

The Department of Technology Systems at the University of Oslo (UiO) is offering a Postdoctoral Research Fellow position in Materials Science and Mineralogy. The appointment is a fulltime position for a period of two years. Preferred starting date is 01.10.2021, but no later than 01.01.2022.

About the position:
  • The position is associated with the project NATSORB (Dypingite – A superior NATural SORBent for management of heavy metal water pollution?) funded by the Research Council of Norway.
  • The project is owned and coordinated by the Natural History Museum (NHM) at the University of Oslo (UiO)
  • The focus of this postdoctoral position is the structural characterization of natural and synthetic dypingite and related Mg-carbonate materials.
  • The structural characterization will rely mainly on powder diffraction techniques.
  • These experiments will be supplemented by spectroscopy measurements to understand long- and short-range structural features of the materials.


  • Application must have PhD or a degree equivalent to a Norwegian doctoral degree, preferably in materials science, inorganic chemistry, crystallography or mineralogy/geology
  • Solid scientific background in materials science and documented research experience with structural characterization techniques, in particular powder X-ray/neutron diffraction methods
  • Proven ability of solving material crystal structures based on powder X-ray and/or neutron diffraction data
  • Acquaintance with solid-state and/or wet-chemical synthesis methods
  • Documented research experience with inorganic chemical compounds (e.g., carbonates, oxides, etc.)
  • Fluent oral and written communication/presentation skills in English


Apply online and the application must include:

  • Cover letter (statement of motivation, summarizing scientific work performance and research interest relevant for this position)
  • CV (summarizing education, positions, any other relevant experience and qualifying activity)
  • Copies of educational certificates (academic transcripts)
  • A complete list of publications and up to 5 academic works that the applicant wishes to be considered by the evaluation committee
  • Names and contact details of 2-3 references (name, relation to candidate, e-mail and telephone number)
