Description of Group/Project:
The Nanostructured Materials for Photovoltaic Energy Group at ICN2 is offering a PostDoctoral position for one year on the fabrication and characterization of stable perovskite solar cells. The group is expert on the synthesis of materials and their application of perovskite solar cells, our objectives are highly focused on the stability of PV devices. The project will be carried out under the supervision of Prof. Monica Lira-Cantu and the project aims are the development of novel materials and interfaces to advance in the perovskite thin-film PV technology. The group collaborates with other research laboratories and companies at European and International level.
Eligible applicants are required to have a PhD either in material science, physics, engineering or a related discipline. She/he will have proven experience in the fabrication of perovskite based optoelectronic devices. The successful candidate will be fluent in English.
Main Tasks and responsibilities:
Main task include: Synthesis of materiasl (oxides, perovskites), ink development, fabricationa and characterization of thin films and devices. Electrical characterization of Solar Cells by nanocharacterization methods. Stability of halide perovskite solar cells. Ability for writing in english and manage Master and PhD students.
