There is a vacancy for a PhD Research Fellow in Nanotechnology at the Department of Physics and Technology. The position is for a fixed-term period of 3 years with the possibility of a 4th year with compulsory other work (e.g. teaching duties at the Department).
The position is related to the ERC Starting Grant project “smartGROW”, which main objective is the development of a new diamond growth technology that allows diamond synthesis in 3D on complex-shaped objects such as medical implants, flexible electronics, optical and mechanical components for aerospace and marine industries. In the project, a novel surface wave plasma chemical vapor deposition (CVD) system will be designed based on various numerical models and realized using advanced manufacturing techniques such as 3D metal printing. The vacancy for a PhD fellow is related to those project tasks, which include fabrication and tests of metamaterial-based waveguides with fractal apertures, and design and construction of the novel CVD chamber. The fellow will get the opportunity to be involved in the design optimization of the CVD system and synthesis of diamond on 3D objects at low temperatures. Design and fabrication of reactor chamber components and tests of diamond deposition on various objects and surfaces will be an integral part of the project.
Experience from one or several of the following areas is an advantage:
Personal and relational qualities will be emphasized. Ambitions and potential will also count when evaluating the candidates.
Special requirements for the position
The University of Bergen is subjected to the regulation for export control system. The regulation will be applied in the processing of the applications.
About the PhD Research Fellow
The fellowship will be for a period of 3 years, with the possibility for a 4th year, consisting of 25 % compulsory work (e.g. teaching responsibilities at the department) distributed over the employment period. The 4th year is contingent on the qualifications of the candidate and the teaching needs of the department and will be decided by the head of department upon appointment.
The employment period may be reduced if you have previously been employed in a qualifying post (e.g. research fellow, research assistant).
About the research training
As a PhD Research Fellow, you must participate in an approved educational programme for a PhD degree within a period of 3 years. The deadline for applying for admission to the PhD programme at The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences is 2 months after you start your position or after the start of the research project that will lead to the PhD degree. It is a condition that you satisfy the enrolment requirements for the PhD programme at the University of Bergen.
The application and appendices with certified translations into English or a Scandinavian language must be uploaded at Jobbnorge.
