Postdoctoral researchers in the field of solar cells and surface science
University of Luxembourg
The University of Luxembourg aspires to be one of Europe’s most highly regarded universities with a distinctly international and interdisciplinary character .
It fosters the cross-fertilisation of research and teaching , is relevant to its country, is known worldwide for its research and teaching in targeted areas, and is establishing itself as an innovative model for contemporary European Higher Education.
The University s core asset is its well-connected world-class academic staff which will attract the most motivated, talented and creative students and young researchers who will learn to enjoy taking up challenges and develop into visionary thinkers able to shape society.
The Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine (FSTM) contributes multidisciplinary expertise in the fields of Mathematics , Physics , Engineering , Computer Science , Life Sciences and Medicine .
Through its dual mission of teaching and research, the FSTM seeks to generate and disseminate knowledge and train new generations of responsible citizens, in order to better understand, explain and advance society and environment we live in.
The FSTM invites applications in the Scanning Probe Microscopy Laboratory headed by Prof. Alex Redinger in the frame of research projects, funded by the Fonds National de la Recherche.
The Scanning Probe Microscopy group synthesizes and investigates thin film solar cells and 2D materials with surface sensitive characterization techniques.
Upgrade the current infrastructure with a photoelectron spectroscopy system to study halide perovskite absorbers and interfaces.
Proven experience : Fabrication and characterization of thin film solar cells, especially halide perovskites; Device simulations is considered as a strong asset;
Scanning Probe or Luminescence methods is an asset.
The postdoctoral researchers will possess a PhD in Physics, Material Science or Chemistry with excellent grades and scientific publications;
Very good knowledge in solid state physics, semiconductors, solar cells and surface science is expected;
Candidates should have excellent problem-solving skills;
Very good written and oral communication skills in English are expected.
