15 Assistant/Associate Professorship recruitment packages in Materials Science for Sustainability

Organization: Wallenberg Initiative Materials Science for Sustainability (WISE)
Location: Sweden
Pay/Volunteer: PI salary, plus salary for 2 PhDs and 2 postdocs
Deadline: Various
Description: The Wallenberg Initiative Materials Science for Sustainability (WISE) is the largest-ever investment in materials science in Sweden and will encompass major efforts at seven of Sweden’s foremost universities over the course of (at least) 10 years. The aim is to create the conditions for a sustainable society by researching the next generation of ecofriendly functional materials and manufacturing processes. This will also facilitate better technology for energy systems of the future, and to combat climate change, pollution, and toxic emissions. Specifically, efforts will be devoted to identifying new or significantly improved materials, which provide a distinct advantage in physical, chemical, biological, or functional performance when compared to existing materials and technologies. This relates to materials that demand fewer resources, are less environmentally hazardous, and enable sound and efficient recycling processes. WISE will also explore materials that, when used in energy technology, generate less negative climate impact under operation, while offering high performance and efficiency when in action at large scales.
