Three (3) PhD student positions

The extensive research activities of MMK, hosting the Berzelii Center EXSELENT for development of nanoporous materials for catalysis, span over Materials and Solid State Chemistry focusing on different classes of materials; e.g. ceramics and glasses, self-assembled and porous materials, and soft matter. The work often encompasses synthesis, characterisation by x-ray diffraction and electron microscopy, NMR studies, modelling with computer simulations of materials with a potential for various applications. Environmental aspects are an important part of the research activities. Deadline for applications: May 5, 2015.

- Crosstalks: "Bend or break: materials for the future"

Human existence is, to a large extent, defined by the materials we use, a fact that is evident in the way we categorize parts of human history into periods such as the Stone Age or the Bronze Age. What are the new materials that will enable technological leaps in the next few years? What aspects of materials are most interesting to researchers today? And how does material science shape our future?

Departmental Changes

Environmental Chemistry was part of MMK between 2010 - 2014.
1 January 2015 they merged with ITM and Analytical Chemistry and formed a new department ACES. Please visit them on

Other Units at MMK


In June 1994 Kemilärarnas Resurscentrum, KRC got an assignment from the Swedish government to start a Centre supporting activities of chemistry teachers in Swedish compulsory and upper-secondary schools. The general aim of the Centre is to promote and stimulate interesting and up-to-date teaching of chemistry in Swedish schools.
The Centre is supported by Stockholm university.
