PhD fellow in Lanthanide Solution Chemistry & Separation Science

Nano-Science Center & Department of Chemistry
Faculty of Science
University of Copenhagen



Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen is offering one PhD scholarship from 15 January 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position is open to candidates with a curiosity driven approach to chemistry. The candidates should be motivated and ready to take control of their own individual research project, which will be conducted in a dynamic, innovative, and multidisciplinary research group under the supervision of Associate Professor Thomas Just Sørensen. The fellowships are supported by the Independent Research Foundation Denmark.

Description of the scientific environment
The positions are in the group of Thomas Just Sørensen, Nano-Science Center & Department of Chemistry, University of Copenhagen. The project will be a close collaboration between the group of Thomas Just Sørensen at the University of Copenhagen, and the group of Teodora Retegan Vollmer, Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Nuclear Chemistry/Industrial Materials Recycling at Chalmers University of Technology. More information about the groups can be found here https://sites.google.com/view/tjsgroup/home and here http://www.chalmers.se/en/staff/Pages/tretegan.aspx

Project description
The project focus on generating a new understanding of the molecular structure found at the liquid-liquid interface in solvametallurgic rare earth separation and purification. The goal is to tailor the separation chemistry and vastly improve selectivity in industrial rare earth separation. The project will involve cryo-TEM, optical spectroscopy, and total solution X-ray scattering and rely heavbily on the current understanding of physicochemical properties of rare earth ions in solution.The successful applicant must ready to take on a lot of new techniques, meticulous, and have a strong background in experimental physical inorganic chemistry.

Job description

  • The position is available for a 3-year period and your key tasks as a PhD student at SCIENCE are:
  • To manage and carry through your research project?
  • Attend PhD courses?
  • Write scientific articles and your PhD thesis?
  • Teach and disseminate your research?
  • To stay at an external research institution for a few months, preferably abroad?
  • Work for the department
Formal requirements
Applicants should hold a BA or a MSc degree in chemistry with good results and have good English skills. As criteria for the assessment of your qualifications, emphasis will also be laid on statements from project supervisors and relevant work experience.

Terms of employment
The position is covered by the Memorandum on Job Structure for Academic Staff.

Terms of appointment and payment accord to the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and The Danish Confederation of Professional Associations on Academics in the State.

The starting salary is currently at a minimum DKK 331,125 (approx. €43,750) including annual supplement (+ pension at a minimum DKK 53,811). Negotiation for salary supplement is possible.

Integrated MSc and PhD Scheme
The position is also available for candidates who are (or are eligible to be) enrolled at one of the faculty’s master programmes in Chemistry or other relevant area. The duration of the integrated programme depends on the amount of credits that you have passed on your MSc programme. For further information about the study programme please see: www.science.ku.dk/phd , “Study Structures”.

Scholarship and terms of employmentfor integrated MSc and PhD
PhD grant portions (Ph.D.-SU klip)

In the period up to the completion of the MSc programme (up to three years), the student is entitled to so-called PhD grant portions. The grant portions are financed by the grant donor but not by the Danish State Educational Grant and Loan Scheme Agency (as is the case for the ordinary study grant portions on the BSc and MSc programmes). They are called PhD grant portions because this kind of remuneration is regulated and described in the Executive Order on the State Educational Grant and Loan Scheme in Denmark (SU-bekendtgørelsen), and because the value of a PhD grant portion corresponds to the value of an ordinary Danish study grant portion. Students are awarded 48 PhD grant portions during the period of their MSc and PhD studies.48 PhD grant portions at DKK 6,243 each, corresponding to DKK 299,664 (approx. €39,955).

'Duty work'
As a supplement to the PhD grant portions, the student may, in accordance with the collective agreement of the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations (AC), be offered 'duty work'. In the period up to the completion of the MSc programme, students performing 'duty work' are paid by the hour. UCPH has decided to offer students on integrated MSc and PhD schemes 150 hours of duty work' per year during Part A of the programme (until two years of the combined programme of study remain). 'Duty work' during Part A if it has a duration of three years: 450 hours at a rate of DKK 219.79 (+ 12.5% holiday pay), corresponding to DKK 111,267 (approx. €14,835)For further information about Part A please see: https://www.science.ku.dk/phd/studystructure/integratedphd/

Salary in accordance with the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of ProfessionalAssociations (AC)
In the period after the completion of the MSc programme, the student is employed as a PhD scholar and is remunerated in accordance with the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations (AC). The scheme is arranged in such a way that students graduate from the MSc programme at a time when there are two years left of the integrated programme. For this reason, the salary must be paid for a period of two years in accordance with the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations (AC). The amounts specified include a supplement locally agreed upon as well as pension contributions: Salary as a PhD scholar: 24 months at a rate of DKK 32,078 (including pension contributions and supplement), corresponding to DKK 769,873 (approx. €102,650).
