  • Potential students: I am always interested in supervising strong, motivated students at the Master and PhD level. If you are interested, please apply to Chalmers University through the appropriate channels. Once you have been accepted at Chalmers, feel free contact me. For PhD positions, please check this website as well as the Chalmers vacancies page. If there are no vacancies listed, this means there are no openings at that time and there is no point in contacting me.

  • Visiting PhD students: We continually have a limited number of openings for visiting PhD students. Recommended duration is 1-3 months. We cannot offer financial support, but will provide office space, access to University facilities, and a stimulating research environment. Feel free to contact me with a concrete research and publication plan.

  • Students funded under the China Scholarship Council ( I offer a small number of positions for Chinese students funded by the CSC for visits up to 1 year.

  • Postdoctoral researchers: We have occasional openings for postdoctoral researchers, which will be announced here. However, you may consider applying for a Marie Curie fellowship (see and click "When to apply").

  • Visiting faculty: If you are interested in visiting the Department of Electrical Engineering for a short-term research stay, we can offer limited financial support. Feel free to get in touch for further information.
