The Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry, Faculty of Natural sciences at Stockholm University is offering a PhD student position in Materials Chemistry.

About the Project:
  • Project title: Assembly of 2D materials into 3D porous membranes via controlled electrostatic complexation. Supervisor (PI): Prof. Jiayin Yuan.
  • This project proposes a new concept to conduct electrostatic complexation of 2D materials in a controlled manner to spatially order them into 3D large-sized porous membranes. Electrostatic interaction is a fundamental form of forces existing universally in charged systems in our human body and in our vivid nature.
  • This project will control the electrostatic complexation process by first mixing the charged 2D materials and the oppositely charged species in a homogenous manner before the actual electrostatic complexation occurs between them, thus allows formation of high-quality porous membrane.
  • The highlight of this project lies in the fabrication simplicity, wide applicability to many 2D materials and tailorable porous structures that will synergistically combine the 2D materials and the state-of-the-art membrane technology, offering a new materials platform to realize the broad potential of 2D nanomaterials.


  • Applicant must have completed a second-cycle degree, completed courses equivalent to at least 240 higher education credits, of which 60 credits must be in the second cycle, or have otherwise acquired equivalent knowledge in Sweden or elsewhere.
