Post-doctoral positions in Spain, ICFO – The Institute of Photonic Sciences
Designation/Position- Post-doctoral positions in Spain
ICFO – The Institute of Photonic Sciences invites application for Post-doctoral positions in Spain from eligible and interested candidates
About- The Functional Optoelectronic NanoMaterials group at ICFO, led by ICREA Prof. Gerasimos Konstantatos, is launching a research program on the design, synthesis and engineering of nanostructured inorganic materials based on Environmentally Friendly Earth Abundant elements for Energy harvesting and solar cell applications.
Research/Job Area- Material Science, Physics or Electrical Engineering
Location- ICFO – The Institute of Photonic Sciences, Spain
candidates must hold an internationally-recognized Ph.D.-equivalent degree (or evidence of its completion in the nearest future) in Material Science, Physics or Electrical Engineering, prior to taking up the position.
No restrictions of citizenship apply to the ICFO positions.
Female scientists are encouraged to apply.
Persons with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.
Research group seek highly motivated, visionary and highly skilled researchers to form a multidisciplinary team. At the moment we are looking for researchers with strong background on material science of inorganic compounds relevant for solar cell applications.
The program will develop new hierarchical engineering schemes of inorganic nanocrystalline semiconductor compounds from the atomic to the suprananocrystalline level to develop high performance low-cost solution-processed solar cells that can cover the broad solar spectrum from the visible to the infrared in both single junction and tandem architectures.
In particular, the incumbent should have demonstrated expertise on the development, understanding and growth of multinary inorganic semiconductor compounds (chalcogenides, chalocpyrites or perovskites), applied in thin-film photovoltaics at material level and/or device engineering level. Experience in correlating material properties (phase purity, crystallinity, composition, film morphology, interfaces) with device performance and/or characterization thereof based on optoelectronic spectroscopy techniques will be positively evaluated.
The position(s) is available for three years renewable on an annual basis depending on the performance of the incumbent and the progress of the project.
How to Apply-
To apply, suitable candidates are requested to submit (in English) the following material:
- A Cover/Presentation letter with a declaration of interest, outlining past research achievements and a description of future research aspirations.
- A Curriculum Vitae with research publications, as well as your contact details.
- Via the online application form, the candidate should indicate two referees, who we will contact for their reference letters if necessary.
Candidates should be willing to be contacted by phone during the selection process.
Candidates Post-doctoral positions in Spain may contact ICFO HR and Education ([email protected]) for informal inquiries regarding the application procedure.
Informal (project-related) inquiries may be addressed to Prof. Dr. Gerasimos Konstantatos ([email protected]).
