Stockholm University is a leading European university and one of the world’s top 100 institutions of higher education and research. Stockholm University has more than 60,000 students and 5,000 staff. In the field of chemistry, it is Sweden’s best-placed institution in international rankings; in the field of environmental science, Stockholm University is among the top-ranked institutions in the world.

The Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry does research spanning over the fields of analytical chemistry, environmental chemistry, ecotoxicology, atmospheric science and biogeochemistry. Much of this research has a strong base in chemistry and the department, with ~200 employees, has modern instrumental and laboratory infrastructure for various types of chemical analysis and measurement.

The Analytical Chemistry Unit is one of five units in the department. Its overarching research goal is to develop qualitative and quantitative methods for chemical analysis. The unit runs doctoral and master’s programmes in analytical chemistry, and contributes to the bachelor’s programme in chemistry. It is entering a rebuilding phase due to upcoming retirements, so the successful candidate will have excellent opportunities to contribute to the development of analytical chemistry at Stockholm University.
