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 University’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 the society and the environment we live in.
The FSTM invites researchers to apply for one of two open postdoctoral positions in the Scanning Probe Microscopy Laboratory headed by Prof.
Alex Redinger in the frame of research projects, funded by the Fonds National de la Recherche. The Scanning Probe Microscopy group synthesizes and investigates thin film solar cells and 2D materials with surface sensitive characterization techniques.
Applicants will have to choose one of the following fields based on their interest :
a) Upgrade the current infrastructure with a photoelectron spectroscopy system to study halide perovskite absorbers and interfaces.
b) Apply novel growth and characterization methods to produce highly efficient halide perovskite solar cells via multi-stage coevaporation.
