Apply by:

We seek a person to contribute to a strong research program and add value to the on-going research in the Ewing laboratory at the University of Gothenburg. The topic of the work will be chemical measurements with STED and electrochemistry at nano electrodes to understand the structure and dynamics of nanometer transmitter vesicles.

Work assignments

The job assignments mainly include planning, designing and carrying out research which combines STED super-resolution microscopy and electrochemistry. Target applications will be in cellular neuroscience and transmitter vesicles, particularly the use of these methods to understand vesicle opening at carbon nanotip electrodes for analysis and relation to the Hoffmeister series.


A PhD degree in Analytical Chemistry is required with at least two year’s experience after the PhD. We are seeking someone that has experience with STED super-resolution microscopy and nanoelectrochemical analysis. The candidate should also have experience with the ionic Hoffmeister series. These areas are essential to the success of this project and applicants need to have experience in both to be considered eligible.


The employment is a time-limited position for two years on fulltime (100%), placed at the Department of Chemistry and Molecular Biology in Gothenburg. Starting in October or upon agreement.
