Postdoctoral scholarship (two years), Umeå University, Sweden

Postdoc Position (2 years) 2019 in Sweden, Umeå University

SummPostdoctoral scholarship (two years): The Department of Physics at Umeå University is offering a postdoctoral scholarship for two years in the design and characterization of plasmon-enhanced light-emitting electrochemical cells (LECs). The project aims to improve the emission efficiency of LECs by utilizing plasmonic excitations to control light scattering and waveguiding. The successful candidate will work closely with Prof. Ludvig Edman’s group at the Organic Electronics and Photonics Group, Department of Physics, Umeå University. The scholarship is funded by the Kempe Foundation and amounts to 350,000 SEK per year, tax-free.
