PhD Student Position (f/m/d) in Defect Physics 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.
1 PhD Student Position in Defect Physics of Semiconductors for Photovoltaic Applications
Positions are funded up to 4 years with fixed-term contracts. Start date: September 2019
Candidate H: Defects have a strong influence on the performance of absorber materials for solar cells. The PhD candidate will perform calculations on the spectroscopic signatures of point defects in the thin-film solar cell materials Cu(In,Ga)S2 and Cu(In,Ga)Se2. This will require the use of existing ab-initio codes based on density-functional theory and on many-body perturbation theory. It will also involve the development of "second principles" methods such as tight-binding (fitted to ab-initio methods in small supercells).
This project 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. Additional collaborations with groups of the European Theoretical Spectroscopy Facility and a secondment in the group of Florian Libisch at the TU-Wien are foreseen as well. 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.
We are seeking excellent and highly motivated candidates holding or just finishing a Master's degree in Physics and a strong background in quantum mechanics, solid-state physics, and computational physics. Fluency in English is mandatory – it is the working language.
Applications should include a motivation letter, 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 through our job portal using the following link. Uni Link :http://emea3.mrted.ly/23t89
Please note that applications failing to contain the requested documents WILL NOT be considered.
