Das Institut für Nanospektroskopie sucht:

Phd (F/M) "Operando characterization of thin-film oxides for silicon/perovskite tandem solar cells with novel electron-spin resonance on-a-chip"

Kennziffer: EM 2018/5

The research at the Institute for Nanospectroscopy at Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie GmbH is focused on new materials for energy technologies such as photovoltaics, solar fuels, thermoelectrics, batteries, catalysts and hydrogen storage. Nanostructured materials are being synthetized and characterized using modern analytics, mostly at the synchrotron and in the Berlin Joint EPR lab (BeJEL) operated by Free University and HZB. The vision of BeJEL is to bundle methodological breakthroughs in different fields of EPR spectroscopy and create an interdisciplinary platform for EPR researchers, where novel experimental EPR approaches can be developed and applied.

Within BeJEL, the FUB and HZB based EPR groups pursue new synergetic routes of research, based on the complementary competence of the partners in the fields of protein, semiconductor and catalysis research. BeJEL’s infrastructure provides the possibility to carry out experiments on more than a dozen EPR spectrometers including cutting edge pulsed/cw S, X, Q, W-band and 263 GHz EPR/ENDOR and EDMR spectrometers and a worldwide unique Frequency-Domain Fourier-Transform THz-EPR spectrometer based on coherent synchrotron radiation.

The Ph.D. position is part of the Helmholtz International Research School "Hybrid Integrated Systems for Conversion of Solar Energy" (HI-SCORE), which is organized together with Israeli Institutes of Higher Learning (Weizmann Inst. of Science, Ben-Gurion Univ. of the Negev, Bar-Ilan Univ., Technion- Israel Inst. of Technol., Hebrew Univ. of Jerusalem) as partner institutions. Within the scope of HI-SCORE, the candidate is expected to join a graduate school at the HZB and spend about 6 months of his/her Ph.D. time working in one or more of the participating Israeli groups.

HI-SCORE will act as a connecting platform for the various participating graduate schools, linking those Ph.D. projects which deal with novel wide-bandgap absorbers in highly efficient tandem devices for the solar generation of electricity and fuels. The additional benefit for the participants of HI-SCORE is a true binational mentoring and supervision structure. The Ph.D. student will be working together with scientists in both, Israel and Germany.
