PhD in Chemistry Education at Uppsala University

Uppsala University is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a PhD position in civil engineering. The deadline for applying is August 30, 2019.

The Department of Chemistry – ngstrm conducts research and education in the chemistry field. The department has more than 200 employees and has a turnover of 200 million SEK. At the department’s six programs, we conduct very successful research of a high international standard. We have a large number of externally funded research projects, often with international cooperation and we see continued good growth in our subject area. The department has education assignments in engineering and civil engineering programs and master’s programs. More information is available on our website.

Description of research project: Modelling is an activity at the heart of chemistry, a way of understanding, analysing and capturing the essential features of chemical phenomena at both molecular and macroscopic levels. Mathematics is frequently used for constructing and analyzing models, as the language for describing processes and mechanisms, as well as the means for gaining insights and making predictions, in combination with underlying chemical principles. The research focus of this PhD position is to understand how university students' knowledge and conceptual understanding of chemistry (in particular within kinetics and thermodynamics) inform and integrate with their use of mathematics in problem-solving. This research aims to contribute to both theoretical and practical insights by exploring how students navigate the interdisciplinary interface between chemistry and mathematics.

Deadline: August 30, 2019
