- Applications are invited for a Junior Post Doc position to join the Centre for Biomolecular Nanotechnologies – Italian Institute of Technology (Lecce – Italy).
The activity will focus on photovoltaics of hybrid and/or fully-organic systems and it will aim to investigate the physics of the photovoltaic device function to achieve high power conversion efficiencies for real applications. It will be investigated the phenomena related to the charge generation, recombination dynamics, the electronic properties of novel π-conjugated materials and device engineering.
The research activity will combine fabrication and characterisation of devices with spectroscopic techniques.
The ideal candidate is a motivated, conscientious and innovative, experimental scientist with a PhD in Physics, Physical Chemistry, Material Science or related fields. Preference will be given to applicants with expertise in organic‑based device physics, optical spectroscopy, processing and technology of organic semiconductors.
The candidate is expected to be an excellent team player working in an ambitious highly-multidisciplinary environment within a large team of dynamic students and researchers. The work will involve an intense interaction with academic collaborators from the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT), National Nanotechnology Laboratory (NNL)-CNR as well as national and international collaborators.
Research activity will be carried out mainly in the fully-equipped new-born laboratories in the Centre for Biomolecular Nanotechnologies (IIT), NNL and University of Salento.
Excellent communication and organisational skills are essential.
The research activity will be supervised by Prof. Giuseppe Gigli
