Das Institut Solare Brennstoffe sucht:

PhD student (m/f) within HI-SCORE research school - Development of oxide-based tandem device for solar water splitting

Kennziffer: EE 2018/16

At the Institute for Solar Fuels, we develop new materials and devices for photoelectrochemical water splitting. We are looking for candidates to strengthen our new project within the Helmholtz-Israel International Research School on Hybrid Integrated Systems for Conversion of Solar Energy (HI-SCORE) on the development of solar water splitting devices using complex metal oxide photoelectrodes.

The Ph.D. positions are 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. Each Ph.D. student will be working together with scientists in both, Israel and Germany.



Der Arbeitsvertrag ist über 36 Monate befristet. Die Bezahlung erfolgt nach dem Tarifvertag für den öffentlichen Dienst (TVöD-Bund).

Wir bemühen uns, den Anteil an Mitarbeiterinnen zu erhöhen und freuen uns daher besonders über Bewerbungen von Frauen. Schwerbehinderte Bewerberinnen/Bewerber werden bei gleicher Eignung bevorzugt eingestellt.

Sind Sie interessiert? Dann bewerben Sie sich bitte bis spätestens 05.07.2018.
