The Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry (MMK) is, with about 160 employees, one of the largest departments at the Faculty of Natural sciences at Stockholm University. A significant part of the teaching activities is at the undergraduate level with courses in General, Physical, Inorganic, and Analytical Chemistry. The teaching at the graduate level focuses on the master programs in Sustainable Chemistry and Analytical Chemistry.

The position will be associated with the project “Circular lignin materials from well-defined functional building blocks” (CIRCULIG), funded by The European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant. The project constitutes frontier research on lignin-based functional materials that are designed for circularity, e.g., reuse, repurposing, and recycling. The Postdoctoral Fellow will have a central role in a five-membered project team that develops methodology for green synthesis and characterization of lignin-based nano/microstructured materials that combine functionality and circularity. The application areas include catalysis, electrochemistry, adhesives and structural materials. The principles of green chemistry are central concepts in the synthesis, while a range of advanced characterization techniques will be used to gain insight into structure-properties-performance relationship of the new materials.

Closing date: 6 February 2023.
