Postdoc in experimental physics - Dynamics of liquids and solids
Department of Science and Environment, Roskilde University invites applications for a position as a postdoc of Physics
from September 1 or soon thereafter. The position is for a period of two years.
Description of the project
Funded by the VILLUM Foundation for the period 2017-2023, the Matter project is an integrated part of the Glass and
Time center (http://glass.ruc.dk ) at Roskilde University’s Department of Science and Environment. Glass and Time is
characterized by strong collaboration between experiment, simulation, and theory. The purpose of Matter is to
understand the fundamental governing principles of structure and dynamics of liquids and solids, in particular to
investigate and further develop the isomorph theory.
We are looking for a talented postdoc for an experimental project within Matter. The postdoc will be working with the
experimental methods in the Glass and Time center in collaboration with Prof. Kristine Niss, Assoc. Prof. Tina Hecksher,
and Prof. Jeppe Dyre (the director of Matter).
The focus of the experimental work in our group is on:
Developing new specialized experimental techniques in close collaboration with engineers and our in-house
Mathematical modeling of the experimental methods and data.
Close collaboration between experiment, simulation, and theory, catalyzed by weekly 2-hour joint group
The presently available experimental methods include broadband mechanical spectroscopy, dynamic specific heat,
dielectric spectroscopy, scattering methods, and high-pressure measurements.
Responsibilities and tasks
Your main task will be to conduct research related to the field of dynamics of liquids and solids as a member of the
experimental part of the Glass and Time group. In addition, some teaching obligations can be expected (max 20% of
your time). You will be part of the scientific staff and as such expected to participate in the departmental and grouprelated
The following qualifications are required
Ph.D. degree in Physics or a related field
Solid experimental experience with glass-forming liquids, polymers or other amorphous systems
Good written and oral English language skills
We are looking for an ambitious, curious and open-minded person. You are expected to possess good communication
skills and to be a visible, involved participant in the department’s daily activities.
In the formal assessment regarding employment consideration will be given to;
Relevant Ph.D. degree
Exam grades in previous studies
Any further professional qualifications
Following the official Roskilde University rules, the application must include the below items. 1. Cover letter - Here you describe in which direction you would like to work, how it relates to the
scientific focus of Glass and Time (compare http://glass.ruc.dk/publications.php ), and how
your qualifications fit into this. A detailed project description is not required; the cover letter is
regarded as the "project description". 2. CV
3. Documentation of education; Ph.D. diploma
4. List of publications
5. Up to 5 selected publications; co-author statements
In addition, any supplemental information (if necessary) may be uploaded.
For further information, you are welcome to contact Prof. Kristine Niss email@example.com or
Prof. Jeppe Dyre at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Terms of employment
The employment is on full time, 37 hours per week and formally, you will refer to Head of Department, Susanne
Sorensen. After taxes, the monthly salary is approximately DKK 20000 (2700 Euro).
