PhD Studentship on developing Perovskite Solar Cells from green, water-based non-toxic solvents

14 May 2024

NOTE: this position listing has expired and may no longer be relevant!

Position Description

The Electronic Engineering PhD Programme ( of the University of Rome – Tor Vergata is making available a fully funded PHD studentship position for 3 years to develop perovskite photovoltaic cells and modules utilizing materials which are processable from water-based or non-toxic inks inks, including the contacts, carrier transport layers and photoactive perovskite semiconductor materials. The studentship is funded by the Ministry of Education, University and Research and is part of the national PRIN project called BOOSTER.
The successful candidate will be working on the design, fabrication, testing and analysis of the photovoltaic architectures as well as deposition through a slot die coater. Research will be carried out at the Centre for Hybrid and Organic Solar Energy,, within the Electronics Department of the University of Rome – Tor Vergata.
Applications are invited for those engineers, physicists, material scientists, nanotechnologists and chemists seeking to work in this exciting field for the 3-year research project of the PhD programme.
