The Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2) is a private foundation created on 11 July 2003 with the objective of becoming a world-renowned centre for nanoscience and nanotechnology research. It is part of CERCA, the network of Research Centres launched by the Catalan Government as a cornerstone of its long-term strategy to foster development of a knowledgebased economy. ICN2's research lines focus on the newly discovered physical and chemical properties that arise from the fascinating behaviour of matter at the nanoscale.
We seek a candidate to be employed as a PhD student within the ICN2 Nanostructured Materials for Photovoltaic Energy Group. The PhD candidate will be working on all solution processing organic solar cells, synthesis, characterization and lifetime analyses. The candidate will also be involved in the synthesis of new materials and their ink formulation, the fabrication and characterization of complete organic solar cells and interfaces and the outdoor and indoor stability test of the devices. The PhD candidate will be working within the ICN2 Nanostructured Materials for Photovoltaic Energy Group (www.icn.es, www.nanostructuredmaterials.org).
The candidate should have a BSc´s and Master’s degree in Chemistry, Physics, Material Science, Engineering or relevant studies. Excellent communication skills are essential while English language is a requisite.
