KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

Job description

The postdoctoral project will focus on advanced studies of optical and electronic properties of InGaN/GaN quantum wells and LEDs. The emphasis is on the experimental work, which will be performed using time-resolved spectroscopy and scanning near-field optical microscopy, and a combination of those. Project results will lead to a deeper understanding of carrier dynamics in these materials and contribute to the development of highly efficient LEDs emitting in the green to red spectral regions. The project will also include modelling and result presentation in the form of journal publications and conference presentations.

  • A position at a leading technical university that generates knowledge and skills for a sustainable future
  • Engaged and ambitious colleagues along with a creative, international and dynamic working environment
  • Works in Stockholm, in close proximity to nature
