Postdoctoral positions in Metal oxides for high performing organic and hybrid photovoltaics

We are an international research group working in the field of organic and hybrid solar cells (SDU NanoSYD OPV group) which are looking for highly motivated postdoc(s) to join our research team at University of Southern Denmark (SDU), Sønderborg, working in the field of metal oxides for organic, perovskite and silicon solar cells. The position(s) is available as soon as possible.

The postdoc position(s) is a part of the Danmarks Frie Forskningsfond research project "Reactively sputtered metal oxides for high performance photovoltaics - ReactPV", which is being led by SDU and conducted in collaboration with Aarhus University, UC Berkeley, LBNL Berkeley, IMEC and Sorbonne University of Paris. The main goals of the project are to develop high performance and stable metal oxides that work as interfacial layers for both electrons and holes in organic, perovskite and silicon solar cells. The techniques in focus are sputtering of metal oxides, thin-film PV device fabrication and characterization alongside device up-scaling using Roll-to-Roll fabrication techniques.

As a postdoc you are expected to develop and carry out your own ideas, and communicate scientific results in leading, high-ranked research journals. We offer fully funded postdoc position(s) for the duration of one year with the possibility of further extension.

At the Organic Photovoltaics group lead by Professor WSR Morten Madsen at SDU NanoSYD, Mads Clausen Institute, SDU campus Sønderborg, the focus is on development of flexible photovoltaic devices with improved performance, including device stability and up-scaling. The group has full access to an ISOS5 cleanroom and surface science laboratory facility for the full preparation and characterization of organic solar cells, and a production facility for roll-to-roll development of flexible devices. The research group is partner in various national and international research projects and networks that include both university and industrial collaboration partners.

Candidates who have a previous PhD degree in a field relevant to the mentioned project may seek the position(s). Preferred candidates have experience with one or several of the following topics: device physics, organic and/or perovskite thin-film device fabrication and characterization, device up-scaling from R2R technology, development and characterization of metal oxide thin films as well as interface engineering. Candidates are expected to hold relevant publications on these topics. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the work, the candidate(s) is expected to have excellent collaboration skills. A very good capability of communicating scientific results in English, both orally and in writing is required. Research visits at the collaborating partners should be expected.

For further information please contact: Professor wsr Morten Madsen, e-mail: madsen@mci.sdu.dk

Please be aware that we will not accept any email applications, as all applications must be submitted through the SDU online recruitment system.
