School of Engineering Sciences in Chemistry, Biotechnology and Health at KTHKTH 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.
The division of Surface and Corrosion Science at the Chemistry department is now looking for a Postdoc who will work together with Prof. Eric Tyrode.
The position is located at the School of Chemistry, Biotechnology and Health (CBH) at KTH.
Job descriptionThe aim of the project is to obtain systematic molecular evidence of the interactions of selected ions with model aqueous interfaces of biophysical, geophysical, and electrochemical relevance. A particular effort will be made to understand the properties of surface hydrated protons (Nat Commun 11, 493, 2020). The experimental results will play a key role in endorsing, disproving, or extending emerging new theories on ion-specific effects, which understanding is considered in physical chemistry to be "as important in the scheme of things as Mendel’s work to genetics". [Chem. Rev. 2012,112, 2286]. The surface molecular information will be obtained using mainly the non-linear surface-sensitive technique Vibrational Sum Frequency Spectroscopy (VSFS or VSFG), currently available in our state of the art facilities. The project will involve collaboration with different research partners both in Sweden and abroad. The candidate will also be expected to participate in the collaborative writing of high-impact papers and project deliverables.
