PostDoc position in Materials Engineering and Characterization
Announcement date: 20 January 2023
The characterization of the amorphous structure
of glass is still a major challenge in Materials Science. It is indeed
much more complex than for their crystalline cousins. The local
characterization is even more complex. In the present project we
propose to use Transmission Electron Microscopy to measure
‘Pair Distribution Fonctions (e-PDF)’ at the local scale in close
collaboration with the world-renown Brussels-based company
• A PhD degree in Engineering, Physics or Chemistry with a strong materials
• Developed a strong experience in Transmission Electron Microscopy

Postdoc position Microsystems for cryomicroscopy
Announcement date: 12 January 2023
The focus of this position is on microfluidic cryofixation. Cryofixation is the gold standard for preserving the structure of proteins and cells so that they can be imaged under vacuum by electron cryomicroscopy. Here the aim is to devise microfluidic devices and associated micro-mechatronic instruments to investigate the dynamic ultrastructural response of specific cell types to transient mechanical, chemical, and thermal stimuli.
The position is best suited for researchers with a background in experimental physics or engineering who have some wet-lab experience and enjoy hands-on hardware development (e.g. microfabrication, precision mechanics, microscopy optics) for biomedical research at the cell level.

PhD student in Materials Chemistry
Announcement date: 02 January 2023 - Deadline for application: 22 January 2023
Investigating nanoporous materials for water cleaning using electron microscopy.
This project aims at the structural investigation of nanoporous materials as well as their interaction with guest species within the pores of the material, in order to create a deeper understanding of their chemical properties. One of the applications that will be explored in this project is the removal of pharmaceuticals from wastewater using metal-organic frameworks. For this purpose, methods such as 3D electron diffraction (3D ED) and emerging imaging techniques in the aberration-corrected transmission electron microscope will be exploited.
The applicant must have completed a second-cycle degree, completed courses equivalent to at least 240 higher education credits, of which 60 credits must be in the second cycle, or have otherwise acquired equivalent knowledge in Sweden or elsewhere.
