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.

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 vacancy at the Laboratory for photovoltaics in the frame of a joint research project, funded by the Fonds National de la Recherche.

The Laboratory for Photovoltaics together with the University of Cambridge will investigate thin film solar cells, which have a shorter energy pay back time than conventional solar cells.

The successful candidate will prepare thin film solar cells, based on chalcopyrite (Cu(InGa)S2) and perform opto-electronic analysis.

This will be combined with advanced electron microscopy, performed at the University of Cambridge, to understand and mitigate limitations of current solar cells.

Your Role

The doctoral candidate will be a member of the Department of Physics and Materials Science within the Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine at the University of Luxembourg.

She or he will perform research under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Siebentritt.
