The University About us...
The University of Luxembourg is an international research university with a distinctly multilingual and interdisciplinary character.
The University was founded in 2003 and counts more than 6,700 students and more than 2,000 employees from around the world.
The University’s faculties and interdisciplinary centres focus on research in the areas of Computer Science and ICT Security, Materials Science, European and International Law, Finance and Financial Innovation, Education, Contemporary and Digital History.
In addition, the University focuses on cross-disciplinary research in the areas of Data Modelling and Simulation as well as Health and System Biomedicine.
Times Higher Education ranks the University of Luxembourg #3 worldwide for its international outlook, #20 in the Young University Ranking 2021 and among the top 250 universities worldwide.
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 is looking for a Ph.D candidate to work within its photovoltaics cluster. The cluster comprises three groups consisting in total of around 25 researchers which investigates new concepts and materials to improve thin film solar cell performance.
As part of this cluster, the laboratory for energy materials (LEM) led by Prof. Phillip Dale, focusses on new semiconductors and synthesis methods, as well as novel device designs for building integrated photovoltaic applications.
LEM is seeking a Ph.D candidate to investigate new semiconductor deposition methods for thin film solar cells with proposed application of building integrated photovoltaics.
The candidate will join the doctoral programme in physics and materials science. The tasks of the candidate include
