Linköping University is thrilled to offer the International Postdoctoral Scholarship in Stretchable All-Organic Batteries. International candidates from all around the world (Non-Swedish citizens) who want to pursue their higher education in Sweden are eligible to apply.
The project aims to develop materials, design concepts and applications for stretchable all-organic batteries. Stretchable batteries are attractive for elastic IOT-tags and wearable devices, as they remain compliant and deformable even at significant thicknesses.
Linköping University (LiU) is one of the largest universities in Sweden and today has 27,000 students and 4,000 employees. LiU conducts world-leading, cross-disciplinary research in areas that include materials science, IT and life science technology.
Why Study at Linköping University? If you wish to achieve a profound understanding of a particular area, doctoral studies at Linköping University may be for you. You learn scientific methodology, sound research ethics, and how to work independently and systematically.

This grant will focus on the development of novel functional material composites and fabrication processes for stretchable all-organic batteries. It is providing the postdoctoral scientist with the opportunity to learn and develop:
- Stretchable conducting polymer battery electrodes.
- Fabrication methods for stretchable electronics.
- Novel concepts for stretchable all-organic batteries.
- Applications for the developed batteries.
Note: Studies and research will be conducted in close collaboration with several partners, including the research institute RISE Acreo.
