Topic:  High-throughput screening of organic materials

This PhD research will focus on:

i) Developing high-throughput screening methods for organic photovoltaics.

ii) Screening for power conversion efficiency and stability.

iii) Evaluation of novel systems and processing parameter space.

iv) Study of large datasets that will be employed to feed statistical tools and artificial intelligence models.

Roles and Responsibilities

The main part of your work will be carried out at Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC) in Barcelona, Spain, in the group of Prof. Mariano Campoy Quiles, and secondment placements are planned to take place at University of Bayreuth (Germany, 2 months), the company InfinityPV (Denmark, 1 month), and Karlstad University (Sweden, 2 months).

The OPVStability project will fund the PhD salary for three years (typically length of a PhD in Spain) and would start as soon as possible, no later than 1st of March 2024.

Your PhD degree will be awarded by Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) on the basis of successful completion of the research work and PhD studies. You will also be required to participate in the training activities and workshops organized by the OPVStability MSCA-DN at different partner institutions in Europe. As a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions fellow, you are also expected to contribute to the dissemination of your project’s result through public engagement and other scientific platforms.
