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.
It 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 University of Luxembourg invites applications for the following vacancies in the Laboratory for photovoltaics in the frame of a research project, funded by the Fonds National de la Recherche.
The Laboratory for Photovoltaics and the Scanning Probe Microscopy group investigate thin film solar cells, which have a shorter energy pay back time than conventional solar cells.
The successful candidates will prepare thin film solar cells, based on chalcopyrite (Cu(InGa)Se2) and perovskites. One candidate will concentrate on opto-electronic analysis, the other one on scanning probe microscopy to understand and mitigate limitations of current solar cells.
The doctoral candidates will be members of the Department of Physics and Materials Science within the Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine at the University of Luxembourg.
They will perform research under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Siebentritt and Prof. Dr. Redinger.
