Postdoc in Environmental Assessment of Electromobility Charging Systems at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg.

Deadline: 15 August 2020.

The aim of the project is to investigate the resource use effects of implementing different types of charging systems, as well as contributions to climate change and other environmental impacts, for stationary charging systems and dynamic charging systems.

Key Responsibilities:

  • The main responsibility of the postdoctoral thematic area researcher will be to carry out research work independently, as well as in collaboration with colleagues, within the boundaries of the prefined SEC project.
  • Another role is to assist the leaders of the Electromobility in Society theme in SEC by organizing activities such as workshops and seminars and take responsibility for regular communication with industrial and academic partners as well as the central administration of SEC.
  • Hence, you are expected to plan and organize your own work, as well as events for other researchers and partner industries.
  • The project will include travelling, foremost in Sweden, and you are expected to take part in foremost national but also some international seminars and conferences. 
  • Commitment and accountability is very important for the role.
  • You will also take part in teaching.


  • You hold a PhD in the field of environmental assessment, preferably with a focus on electrified vehicles or charging infrastructure, and you have expertise in life cycle assessment.
  • It is a benefit if you have documented knowledge about the technology of electric propulsion and charging, and you should have high ability to work in an interdisciplinary setting.
  • You are good at interacting and collaborating with industrial stakeholders, i.e. previous work in industry is a merit.
  • Experience of work in academic research, especially LCA work in practice in the form of data collection and hands on modelling work, is a strong merit. Experience of teaching at university level is also a merit.
  • Your communication skills in English (written and spoken) are excellent. Communication skills in Swedish are a benefit. Chalmers offers Swedish courses.
