15 PhD positions in chemistry, physics, material science and electrical engineering

Job description

  • Would you like to be trained in research on the forefront of organic solar cells?
  • Are you in the first four years of your research career, or will you graduate in 2017?
  • Do you have a background in chemistry, physics, material science or electrical engineering?
  • Are you interested in doing your PhD in high profile research institutes across Europe under guidance of renowned supervisors?

Apply for our exciting research on “Spins for Efficient Photovoltaic devices based on Organic MOlecules” (SEPOMO), and become part of the next generation of photovoltaic experts!

Supported and co-funded by the European Commission through the Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie ITN Programme, the SEPOMO network offers 15 high level fellowships for joint research on efficient photovoltaic devices. The most talented and motivated students will be selected for a 3-year advanced multidisciplinary research training, preferably starting June 2017 (10 positions) and October 2017 (5 positions).


We aim to bring the performance of organic solar cells forward by taking advantage of the so far unexplored degree of freedom of photogenerated species in organic materials, their spin. As a PhD in our network, you will contribute to the development of several novel routes to enhance the efficiency of organic solar cells by understanding and exploiting the electronic spin interactions. This will allow us to address crucial bottlenecks in state-of-the-art organic solar cells: we will increase their efficiency by reducing the dominant recombination losses and by enhancing the light harvesting and exciton generation, e.g. by means of internal upconversion of excited states.
