Code: WINCOST-01
Project: WINCOST- Wide band gap Chalcogenide Technologies for cost efficient solar energy applications (ENE2016-80788-C5-1-R)
Area: Advanced Materials for Energy
Head of the Area: Prof. Joan Ramon Morante
Group: Solar Energy Materials and Systems Group, SEMS
Group leader: Prof. Alejandro Pérez Rodríguez

The Solar Energy Materials and Systems Group (SEMS) announce a postdoctoral position in the frame of the WINCOST Project, in the research line of:

DEVELOPMENT OF WIDE BAND-GAP CHALCOGENIDES FOR PHOTOVOLTAIC APPLICATIONS

The candidate will carry out a multidisciplinary scientific activity centered in the development of wide band-gap absorbers, using Cu-based chalcogenides (Cu(In,Ga)(S,Se)2 and Cu2Zn(Si,Ge,Sn)(S,Se)4), with the objective to develop specific solutions that meet the different needs in different photovoltaic applications, based on the use of semiconductors with different band gaps (Eg).

The candidate will work in the frame of the WINCOST project (Retos de la Sociedad Programme of the Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad) in the synthesis of Cu(In,Ga)(S,Se)2 and Cu2Zn(Si,Ge,Sn)(S,Se)4 through a sequential process (sputtering+annealing), in the fundamental characterization of these materials, and in the fabrication and characterization of photovoltaic devices.

Requisites: the candidates need to be in position of the doctoral degree in Physic, Chemistry, Electronic Engineering, Materials Engineering or equivalent, before the incorporation date. Previous experience in thin film photovoltaic technologies, and especially in the synthesis, fabrication and advanced structural (Raman spect.) and optoelectronic characterization of chalcogenide solar cells using sequential (sputtering + reactive annealing) processes as well as in the fabrication and characterization of photovoltaic minimodules/modules will be very well evaluated.

Candidacy: send the CV, a motivation letter and PhD diploma (or certificate) to Prof. Alejandro Pérez Rodríguez ( Aquesta adreça electrònica s'està protegint contra robots de correu brossa, necessiteu que el JavaScript estigui habilitat per a mostrar-la ) indicating WINCOST-01 in the subject of the e-mail
Deadline: 17 May 2017 at 17:00 hs.
Starting date: June 2017
Duration of contract: 12 months
