The project will beside synthesis in organosilicon chemistry also include close interaction with computational chemists and physicists as well as experimental groups working with spectroscopy, electron microscopy and electron transport measurements.
The ideal candidate has an MSc degree with solid experience in synthetic organic/organometallic chemistry, but also an outspoken interest in physical/theoretical chemistry as well as physics.
The project is interdisciplinary and an ability of the PhD student to go outside the traditional disciplines is appreciated.
The PhD position is for 4.5 years including 10% department duties such as assisting in courses at the undergraduate level. The start date is early 2007.
Uppsala University is striving to achieve a more equal gender balance among its researchers. Since the Ottosson group at present has a domination of male personnel, female candidates are particularly invited to apply.

The application should contain a letter where the applicant describes her/himself, her/his qualifications, and interests.
It should contain a CV, copies of relevant grades, contact information of minimum two reference persons that are not related to each others, copies of the applicant's Master thesis or an outline thereof, and possibly previous research publications.
