Multiple postdoctoral positions are available in the group for Functional Materials Imaging in the Section for Nan scale Materials and Devices at DTU Physics.

  1. We are a young and energetic group with a vision to unravel fundamental structure-property relationships in functional materials via new and original characterization and analysis methods.
  2. We offer a positive, supportive and international research environment that values diversity, creativity, personal growth and impact.
  3. The projects involve close collaboration with theoretical and experimental groups, both within DTU and international.
  4. Regular travel to international synchrotron facilities is anticipated.
    Are academically curious and think deeply and creatively
  5. Communicate well in both written and spoken English
  6. Is empathetic, kind, and enjoy working with others from diverse backgrounds.
  7. Take responsibility for the progress and quality of their projects.
  8. Are willing to encourage and nurture young researchers in the group (PhDs, MSc and BSc students).


  1. Candidates should have a PhD degree or equivalent in a technical field, such as physics, chemistry, materials or mechanical engineering.
  2. Ideally, candidates should have experience with structure-property relationships in solid-state materials (e.g. ferroelectrics, multiferroics, or other functional oxides), or with materials characterization (e.g. x-ray scattering, electron microscopy or other materials imaging methods).
  3. The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations.
  4. The allowance will be agreed upon with the relevant union.The period of employment is 2 years. The starting date is flexible; either ASAP or in 2021 – please state desired starting date in your cover letter.
