We are looking for a highly motivated Postdoc to join our research group at Chalmers. You will be part of our organic electronics team and focus on electrochemical doping. The goal of your project will be to develop methods that allow you to study the impact of electrochemical doping on the mechanical properties of conjugated polymers. You will work closely with several PhD students in our group and have the opportunity to visit the labs of external collaborators. The following review provides an overview of the research topics that the position will address: Chem. Soc. Rev. 2024, 53, 1702.

Information about the division and the department

The Müller Research Group focuses on the physical chemistry and materials science of organic semiconductors, polymer blends and composites, and develops new plastic materials for use in the fields of wearable electronics and energy technology. All research is conducted in co-operation with other universities/institutes and/or industry. Presently, our group consists of 1 Professor, 1 permanent researcher, 3 Postdocs and 9 PhD students.

Major responsibilities

The majority of your working time is devoted to your own research, in collaboration with other postdocs and students in our group as well as collaborating groups. In addition, you are expected to support and mentor the PhD students in our group that work on related topics. As a Postdoc you are expected to develop your own ideas and communicate scientific results orally as well as in writing.


The successful candidate must have a PhD degree in Materials Science, Electrical Engineering or equivalent (or be in the process of completing a PhD degree) with focus on organic electronics and specifically electrochemistry of organic semiconductors, including conjugated polymers. A promising track record of early achievements such as scientific publications is expected.

You should have experience with characterization tools that allow to study the electrical and electrochemical properties of conjugated polymers, as well as their nanostructure and optical properties. Relevant techniques include FTIR, UV-vis spectroscopy, thermal analysis (DSC, TGA), X-ray diffraction (WAXS, SAXS), optical microscopy, AFM, SEM, TEM, as well as electrical conductivity measurements, spectroelectrochemistry and cyclic voltammetry. Previous experience with the fabrication and characterization of organic electrochemical transistors (OECTs) is required.

Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the work, the candidate is expected to have excellent collaboration skills. A very good capability of communicating scientific results in English, both orally and in writing is required.

To qualify for the position of postdoc, you must hold a doctoral degree awarded no more than three years prior to the application deadline (according to the current agreement with the Swedish Agency for Government Employers). Exceptions from the 3-year limit can be made for longer periods resulting from parental leave, sick leave or military service*.

  • The date shown in your doctoral degree certificate is the date we use, as this is the date you have met all requirements for the doctoral degree.

Contract terms

Full-time temporary employment for a maximum of two (2) years, with the possibility to extend by one (1) more year provided project funding is available and the project goes according to plan. The monthly salary of a Postdoc researcher at Chalmers is about 40'000 SEK before tax (€ 3'500).
