PhD Student Position (f/m/d) in Advanced Characterization of Semiconductors for Photovoltaic Applications
University of Luxembourg
Luxembourg is a dynamic multicultural country in the heart of Europe with a strong research culture supported by important financial and organisational resources. It offers state-of-the-art facilities and an excellent training environment for early-stage researchers, in particular in physical sciences.
The University of Luxembourg is a multilingual, international research University.
PACE is a competitive PhD training program for a total of 8 PhD candidates, supported by the research funding scheme PRIDE of the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR). The PACE doctoral training unit provides structured PhD training in advanced photovoltaic concepts for building highly efficient next generation solar cells.
2 PhD Student Positions in Advanced Characterization of Semiconductors for Photovoltaic Applications
Positions are funded up to 4 years with fixed-term contracts. Start date: September 2019
Candidate will conduct correlative optical and electrical characterization of different thin film solar cell technologies on the micrometer scale in order to deeply understand the materials properties. The tasks of this candidate include: Hyperspectral time resolved photoluminescence imaging of CIGSe, hybrid perovskites and photo-ferroelectric materials and Kelvin Probe Force Microscopy in inert gas and ultra-high vacuum on selected samples to correlate the optical properties to the electrical properties on the micrometer scale. Email email@example.com for more information.
The AINA group at LIST has been developing a Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS) add-on system for the Helium Ion Microscope (HIM) and for a Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM), allowing the advantages of high spatial resolution with high sensitivity chemical information to be combined. The candidate will use these novel multi-modal analytical instruments (HIM-SIMS and TEM-SIMS) to develop correlative nano-scale methodologies and apply them to photovoltaic samples. The PhD candidate will acquire highly-valued skills in advanced characterization techniques (TEM, HIM, SIMS) applicable in a number of fields in materials science and beyond. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Master degree in physics or material science with excellent grades
Experience in optical characterization of semiconductors via luminescence techniques is highly desirable
Expertise in scanning probe microscopy is highly desirable
A solid knowledge in semiconductor physics is mandatory
Interest in working with prototype instruments.
These projects will be part of the PACE program and will involve close collaboration with experimental groups of the University of Luxembourg and the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST). Additionally collaborations with groups from RWTH Aachen and the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin are foreseen. The PACE program includes transferable skill training, support in career development, scientific lectures by international speakers and annual PhD retreats. The PhD candidates will be enrolled at the Doctoral School of Science and Engineering at the University of Luxembourg.
Applications should include a motivation letter stating the choice of project, the contact details of two references, a full curriculum vitae and a copy of the relevant diplomas showing marks, and should be sent before 31st March 2019 using the following link. Uni Link:http://emea3.mrted.ly/23tb8
Please note that applications failing to contain the requested documents or which do not indicate the preferred PhD projects WILL NOT be considered.
