University of Oslo PhD Research Fellowship in Semiconductor Physics, Norway


University of Oslo is offering a PhD research fellowship in Semiconductor Physics at the Department of Physics. If the successful candidate has a good knowledge of one Scandinavian language (Norwegian, Swedish, Danish), the fellowship will be for a period of 4 years, with 25 % compulsory work (teaching responsibilities at the Department of Physics). Otherwise, the fellowship will be for a period of 3 years, with no compulsory work. Starting date is no later than 31.12.2014. Applicants must hold a Master’s degree or equivalent in physics, chemistry, material science, nanothechnology or related field. Women are encouraged to apply. The application deadline is 22 October, 2014.



  • Fellowship is awarded in Semiconductor Physics at the Department of Physics.

  • Fellowship is available for pursuing PhD research programme at University of Oslo.

  • University of Oslo, Norway is providing this Fellowship.


Eligibility:
-Applicants must hold a Master’s degree or equivalent in physics, chemistry, material science, nanothechnology or related field.
-The purpose of the fellowship is research training leading to the successful completion of a PhD degree.
-The fellowship requires admission to the PhD program at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. The application to the PhD program must be submitted to the department no later than two months after taking up the position. For more information see here and here.
-A good command- written and oral- of English is required. The knowledge of Norwegian or other Scandinavian language is an advantage.

  • Norwegian and international students can apply for this research fellowship.

  • The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences has initiated a cross-disciplinary research program on functional oxides, FOXHOUND, as a strategic effort to support scientific excellence in materials and energy related research at the University of Oslo. FOXHOUND merges key complementary competences within structural and materials chemistry, ionics and electrochemistry, semiconductor and structural physics into one targeted effort towards functional oxides. As a part of FOXHOUND effort, the present PhD position deals with band gap engineering in oxide heterostructures in particular using combinations in ZnO-CdO-MgO system. The focus is on phase separation, lattice mismatch and strain accumulation issues challenging the synthesis of multiple quantum wells (MQWs) with reliable 2-D electron gas properties. Notably, the emphasis for this position is on material synthesis, while the characterization of samples – structural, optical and electrical – is done in cooperation with experts specialized in these fields.

  • One PhD research fellowship will be available.

  • If the successful candidate has a good knowledge of one Scandinavian language (Norwegian, Swedish, Danish), the fellowship will be for a period of 4 years, with 25 % compulsory work (teaching responsibilities at the Department of Physics). Otherwise, the fellowship will be for a period of 3 years, with no compulsory work. Starting date no later than 31.12.2014.

  • Pay grade: 50 – 57 (NOK 429 700 – 482 800 per year).

  • The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences has a strategic ambition of being a leading research faculty. Candidates for these fellowships will be selected in accordance with this, and expected to be in the upper segment of their class with respect to academic credentials.

  • The mode of applying is online. The application must include:

  • -Application letter including a description of scientific interests and the motivation for applying for the position (max. 2 pages)
    -CV (summarizing education, positions and academic work – scientific publications)
