Luleå University of Technology experiences rapid growth with world-class
expertise within several research domains. We shape the future through
innovative education and ground-breaking research results. Drawing on our
location in the Arctic region, we create global societal benefit. Our research
is carried out in close collaboration with companies such as LKAB, Ericsson,
Boliden, ABB and Epiroc and with leading universities around the world. Luleå
University of Technology has an annual turnover of SEK 1.8 billion. We are
today 1,770 members of staff and have 17,200 students.
In the coming years, investments amounting to many billions will be made in
large projects in the regions of Norrbotten and Västerbotten in Northern
Sweden. Luleå University of Technology is involved in several of these
cutting-edge research projects and offers a broad range of courses and study
programmes to match the skills in demand.
Electric Power Engineering in Skellefteå, Sweden, is a successful group at
Luleå University of Technology led by Professor Math Bollen and Associate
Professor Sarah Rönnberg.
The current research areas for the group are power quality in low, medium and
high-voltage networks, integration of renewable electricity production and
electric vehicle charging, smart grids and electricity markets. The group has
a good national and international reputation for its leading research, is a
world leader in power quality, and has a good national reputation for its
undergraduate education in electrical networks. The group's research results
have received, over the years, attention from both industry and academia.
Electric Power Engineering currently consists of 3 professors, 2 additional
senior researchers, 2 research engineers and 19 doctoral students. The group
consists of 16 men and 10 women.

Electric power engineering covers studies of sustainable systems for
production of electrical energy, transport of electrical energy and the
interaction between the power grid, electricity production and electricity
We are recruiting a postdoctoral researcher on a project aimed at
developing a measurement method for radiated emission in the frequency range
below 150 kHz. This includes data analysis (including analysis of large
amounts of data) and performance indicators for emission related to railway
operation. The project is directed towards radiated emission from railway
traction and it will be in collaboration with the Swedish Transport
The postdoctoral researcher will collaborate with a postdoctoral researcher in
a parallel project studying radiated emission from large charging
Your primary duties as a postdoctoral researcher are to perform research
and education to prepare for future positions within the academy. The main
part of your duties will be research-related, but teaching and other non-
research duties may be part of your duties as well.
The qualifying background for applicants is a doctoral degree in Electric
Power Engineering or equivalent. Priority is given to candidates who have
completed a doctoral degree within three years before the application date.
You must be able to express yourself in English, at advanced level, in writing
You must have scientific knowledge that is relevant to the project. We are
looking for a person with knowledge on radiated and conductive disturbances;
measurement techniques for radiated emission in general and below 150 kHz in
particular; analysis of large amount of measurement data; and/or knowledge of
railway traction. People with other knowledge, skills and/or experience
relevant to the project will also be considered for the position.
