Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia – IIT (www.iit.it) is opening a post-doctoral position on the processing of stable perovskite semiconductors with tunable bandgap for the fabrication and characterization of solar cells in the framework of the Horizon 2020 call for proposal Competitive Low-Carbon Energy, Research and Innovation Action (RIA) Grant Agreement 763977.
This research activity will be carried out at the “Center for Nano Science and Technology” of Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in Milan (Italy), under the supervision of Dr Annamaria Petrozza. It will be developed within an European Network aiming at advancing the perovskite thin-film PV technology to the next level by undertaking a “double pronged” drive on both performance (efficiency and stability) and the development of scalable device and module fabrication methodologies, compatible with high volume manufacturing. The consortium consists of leading academic groups in perovskite European PV research, in addition to research companies, and 3 commercial partners at appropriately complementary stages in the value chain (Technology driver, materials supplier and equipment supplier).
Eligible applicants are required to have a PhD either in material science, physics, engineering or a related discipline. She/he will have proven experience in the fabrication of perovskite based optoelectronic devices. The successful candidate will be fluent in English.
The closing date for applications is 20/12/2018 and applications, including a cover letter, CV and the contacts of two scientists ready to support the candidate should be sent to Annamaria.firstname.lastname@example.org
Salary will be commensurate to qualifications and experience and in line with international standards.
IIT was established in 2003 and successfully created a large-scale infrastructure in Genova and a network of 10 state-of-the-art laboratories countrywide with an international staff of about 1100 people from more than 50 countries. IIT's research endeavour focuses on high-tech and innovation, representing the forefront of technology with possible application from medicine to industry, computer science, robotics, life sciences and nano-biotechnologies.
