Opportunities, Proposed PhD Topics

PhD positions at CHALMERS University of Technology

Phd positions for nuclear chemist/chemist

Information about the division and the research
Chalmers University of Technology’s Department of Chemistry has about 300 employees which are working within four research divisions and one administrative unit.

The division of Energy and Materials hosts the research group of Nuclear Chemistry / Industrial Materials Recycling comprising 8 senior scientists as well as 11 PhD students and postdocs, headed by two professors in Nuclear Chemistry and Industrial Materials Recycling. The research group is highly international and has a wide international network.

Besides the research on material interactions in reactors at elevated temperatures, the group is specialized in aqueous chemistry and solvent extraction used for both recycling of materials and nuclear applications.

In the field of nuclear chemistry, there are four major research areas: 1)  novel nuclear fuels for the generation IV nuclear power systems, 2) radionuclide release from severe nuclear accidents, 3) partitioning and transmutation of spent fuel, and 4) final repository of radioactive waste. The nuclear chemistry research facilities are unique for an university in Europe, with a dedicated alpha laboratory for nuclear fuel research and a gamma lab with “hot cell” and irradiation source. In addition, there are several radiochemistry laboratories for trace-level work.
