Deskripzioa

A PhD position is available at POLYMAT and DIPC (San Sebastian, Spain) to conduct research in NUCLEATION AND CRYSTALLIZATION OF SEMI-CRYSTALLINE SEMICONDUCTIVE POLYMERS. The project is aimed at gaining full understanding of how the solid state microstructure is generated in new generations of high-performing polymers for organic photovoltaics (e.g. PBDB-T, PBDB-T-2Cl, etc.) via crystallization. The final goal will be to establish relevant interrelationships between the processing, the structure and the (optoelectronic) properties of this polymers. This is a joint doctoral program between Dr. Jaime Martín (EHU/UPV – POLYMAT) and Prof. Alejandro J. Müller (EHU/UPV – POLYMAT).

Main tasks of the position will be:

  • Study the crystallization processes of semiconducting polymer thin films combining ultrafast calorimetry, synchrotron radiation, spectroscopic and microscopic methods.
  • Understand how the microstructure impact optoelectronic properties, for example, charge-carrier transport, charge generation, exciton recombination, etc.

Eligibility

Applicants must have a BSc and MSc in Physics, Chemistry or Materials Science/Engineering and general knowledge about polymer physics or organic electronics. A background in Polymer Physics is highly desirable.

Good command of written and spoken English is a must. The selected candidate is expected to conduct research, travel, write papers, and deliver a PhD thesis.

Applications

Applications, as one single PDF, should be submitted electronically to Dr. Jaime Martin (jaime.martin@polymat.eu) or to Prof. A. J. Müller (alejandrojesus.muller@ehu.es) before of November 15th and should include:

  1. A cover letter highlighting their interest in the position.
  2. Curriculum vitae.
  3. A short description of previous research (1-2 Pages).
  4. The names and contact addresses (e-mail) of two academic referees.

For further information or queries, please contact jaime.martin@polymat.eu or alejandrojesus.muller@ehu.es

Please note that because of the large number of applications expected, we will not be able to give individual feedback to unsuccessful applications.
