Postdoctoral position, theory of phonon transport in 2D materials : Göteborg, Sweden

Department of Applied Physics at Chalmers – home of the Graphene Flagship
Stimulated by major needs and challenges in science and a sustainable society, the ambition of the department of Applied Physics is to foster a creative environment for academic research, learning and outreach. We provide a competitive advantage by linking our top-level international and interdisciplinary academic performance in the areas of material science, nanotechnology and energy research with world-leading industrial R&D&I projects. We address a wide array of experimental, computational, methodological and theoretical challenges, from fundamental physics research, through the development of new materials such as graphene to direct industrial projects generating new inventions. We have a strong learning commitment on all levels from undergraduate to PhD studies where physics meet engineering. We are situated in a stimulating and creative environment with newly renovated facilities.

The department is the major part of Gothenburg Physics Centre – a collaboration between five departments at Chalmers and Gothenburg University.

Information about the division and the project
The division of Condensed Matter Theory (CMT) group consists of four professors, one associate professor, three assistant professors, several postdoctoral researchers and PhD-students. In the past, one focus of the research was on theoretical models of fundamental and applied aspects of nanoelectromechanical systems based on carbon nanotubes and, in recent years, graphene. Other research directions focus on plasma physics and metamaterials. As the group participates in several national and international research projects together with leading experimental groups in the field, we aim at research of the highest international quality with a strong relevance to experiments and future applications.

This project aims at gaining further understanding of flexural wave propagation in atomically thin membranes subject to scatterers such as grain boundaries, pinning points at the substrate, or adsorbed particles. As flexural phonons are believed to be very important for heat transport in atomic membranes, part of the project also aims at further understanding the role of defects in this case. Partly, the project will be conducted in close collaboration with experimental activities on heat transport in graphene carried out within the department.

The successful applicant will work with numerical and analytical models of flexural phonon propagation. In particular, a working knowledge of molecular dynamics simulations is a requirement.

Major responsibilities
Your major responsibility as postdoc is to perform your own research in a research group. The position also includes teaching on undergraduate and master's levels as well as supervising master's and/or PhD students to a certain extent. Another important aspect involves collaboration within academia and with society at large. The position is meritorious for future research duties within academia as well as industry/the public sector.

Position summary
Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of two years (1+1).

Qualifications
To qualify for the position of postdoc, you must have a theory oriented PhD in physics or materials science. Strong background in physics in general and molecular dynamics simulations in particular. The degree should generally not be older than three years. You are expected to be somewhat accustomed to teaching, and to demonstrate good potential within research and education.

The position requires good sound verbal and written communication skills in English.
