    PhD project
    Cu2ZnSn(S,Se)4 alloys will be synthesized, in order to define the most suitable composition for high performing bifacial solar cells. The PhD student will become familiar with different deposition techniques, such as ink-jet, blade-coating and in situ deposition. The PhD student is expected to perform a systematic study of the structural, optical, and electronic properties of the synthesized thin films by using various characterization techniques including XRD, SEM and EDS studies, UV-Vis, Raman and Photoluminescence spectroscopy, AFM and Hall-effect measurements.
    We are looking for a talented individual who is excited about academic research. He/she should be able to work independently as well as to cooperate with an interdisciplinary team of researchers. Applicants should hold a master’s degree in Material Science or Chemistry, and preferably earlier experience in the field of semiconductor materials. Strong communication skills and fluency in both written and spoken English are required. A problem-solving attitude will be considered as a head start.
    How to apply
    Applications are open until 7th June 2018 at 12 noon (CEST):

    The program starts on 1th November 2018.
