Postdoctoral in organic electronics (physics, chemistry, materials science, electronics) Sweden

At Linköping University we embrace innovative thinking. Constantly challenging ourselves has been our strongest motivator ever since we opened our doors in 1975. We are driven by seeking answers beyond the traditional and across subject boundaries. If you are too, we would like to see you at our university. Together we can find solutions to the challenges of the day.

At the Department of Science and Technology, at the university’s Norrköping Campus, we provide education and conduct research in physics and electronics, communications/logistics and mediaL and information technology. The department is recognised for its work in fields including logistics, visualisation and organic electronics. We combine academic excellence with fruitful collaboration with the Community.

At the Laboratory of Organic Electronics (LOE), we focus on the study and application of electronically and ionically conducting organic materials in an array of areas spanning energy harvesting, printed electronics, photonics, and bioelectronics.

During the past few years, we have investigated nanofiber cellulose (NFC) and its combinations with various organic electronic materials, as a substrate material and functional material for organic electronics and printed electronics. The scholarship is aimed at continuing this research, which will provide the postdoctoral scientist the opportunity to learn:


This scholarship will primarily focus on research and personal development within the field of organic electronics. The postdoc will investigate manufacturing methods and patterning methods for NFCL based conducting and semiconducting paper. The research will include functionalized paper as well as devices and circuits based on such paper. Research will be primarily of experimental character, including lab scale manufacturing as well as electrical and materials characterization.


The position requires a doctorate or an equivalent degree from a foreign university. The doctorate shall have been obtained no longer than three years before the expiration date of the application.

A degree in a field related to printed and/or organic electronics (physics, chemistry, materials science, electronics, etc) will be favored. Experience in multidisciplinary research projects will also be valued. Research at the Laboratory of Organic Electronics is carried out predominantly in English, so relative fluency is favorable.
