Project description:

PhD in the development of “Novel Electron Accepting Molecules for Organic and Tin Perovskite Photovoltaics”

International Dual Degree PhD (Cotutelle) of CY Cergy Paris Université (Paris, France) and University of Warwick (Coventry, UK) in the framework of EUTOPIA European University Alliance

Applications are invited for a fully funded 4 year PhD in chemistry focused on the development of new electron accepting molecules for use in organic and tin perovskite photovoltaics. Photovoltaic devices convert sunlight directly into electricity and will play an increasingly major role in meeting humanity’s energy needs in the coming decades. Organic and tin perovskite photovoltaics are two classes of emerging photovoltaic that offer the possibility of high performance together with sustainability in terms of the materials and processes used to fabricate the devices. One of the keys to achieving their full potential as a source of renewable electricity is the development of suitable electron accepting / electron transporting molecules, which is the focus of the proposed PhD project. The PhD student will spend the first 2 years of the project working under the supervision of Dr Thanh-Tuân Bui at CY Cergy Paris Université in Paris, synthesising and characterising new electron accepting molecules, before moving to the laboratory of Prof. Ross Hatton at the University of Warwick in the heart of England, to undertake the final two years of the project. The latter half of the project will focus on testing the new electron accepting molecules in organic and tin perovskite photovoltaic devices. This project is a truly interdisciplinary research training opportunity spanning molecular design, organic synthesis methodologies and photovoltaic device fabrication and characterisation. It is funded by the EUTOPIA Alliance (https://eutopia-university.eu/english-version/research). If you are interested in this opportunity please contact Dr Bui (tbui@cyu.fr) and Prof. Hatton (Ross.Hatton@warwick.ac.uk) as soon as possible.

Requirements:

Applicants should have a Masters level degree (at least II.1 or equivalent) in chemistry, or other relevant discipline.

Warwick University requires evidence that your English language capability is of a level that will enable you to succeed. You may sufficiently satisfy the English language requirements if you are a national of an English speaking country recognised by UK Visa & Immigration (UKVI), or you have been educated entirely in English, in a UK Visa & Immigration (UKVI recognised English speaking country, for the duration of your degree and completed this qualification within the last 2 years and 4 months. Alternatively you will have to provide proof of an overall IELTS (Academic, UKVI or Online) score of 6.5 with minimum component scores not below 6.0. All IELTS tests must have been taken within two years and 1 month of the start date of your course at Warwick to be valid.

How to apply:

Please direct informal enquiries and requests for further information to Dr Bui (tbui@cyu.fr) or Prof. Hatton (Ross.Hatton@warwick.ac.uk)
