jobs description

Professor in Chemistry with specialization batteries Published:
The Department of Chemistry - Ångström conducts research and education in the chemistry field. The department has more than 270 employees and has a turnover of 300 million SEK. At the department's six programs, we conduct very successful research of a high international standard. We have a large number of externally funded research projects, often with international cooperation and we see continued good growth in our subject area.

The department has education assignments in engineering programs and master's programs. More information is available on our website.

One international project with outstanding significance at Uppsala University and the department is the coordination of Battery
2030+. Battery
2030+ is the EU commission efforts to ensure a strong and long-term European battery knowledge-base within fundamental research on a number of important aspects of the technology area that batteries constitute. The... project is critical to render Europe internationally competitive in battery research and technology. It is within this context of commitment towards Battery
2030+ that Uppsala University now seeks to add a new professor, which will also maintain the university´s position nationally and internationally as a leading research and educational facility in the field.
Description of subject area of the employment:
The Department of Chemistry – Ångström Laboratory has for many years hosted an environment focused on research and development of materials and their applications within the energy storage area: the Ångström Advanced Battery Centre. The centre involves ca. 100 employees. We develop novel electrode and electrolyte materials, characterize them, evaluate and improve them with respect to battery performance, and study fundamental chemical processes and properties using both experimental and computational techniques.

The research is, as such, both fundamental and applied, and encompass much collaboration with other academia and industry.

This position is strongly associated with the involvement in Battery
2030+ and its coordination. The role as representative for Battery
2030+ involves representing the academic research and technology area in a broader international context, against decision makers, authorities, industry and academia. This, in turn, requires in-depth knowledge of Li-ion batteries and next-generation battery chemistries, as well as of different parts of the battery value chain. The conditions for industry and academia must be understood and respected, associated with infrastructure, research finance, and educational needs.

This role means to aid the European battery research to reach a globally world-leading and competitive position.


As professor you represent your subject. With the title follow responsibility for the content, development and quality of this subject in both research and undergraduate and graduate education.
Research, teaching and administration. Supervision and teaching at third-cycle level and teaching at first- and second-cycle level. Teaching duties include course responsibility and course administration.
Information about research and development and participation in the planning of research projects.
Follow developments within the subject area and the development of society in general that is important for the work at the university.
Initially the position involves leading international meetings within different parts of Battery
2030+ and coordination between European research projects in the battery area. The position also involves leading a team locally at Uppsala University with project manager, communication officer and other administrative staff connected to Battery
