PhD position in organic chemistry

New π-conjugated organic molecules and materials for solar energy conversion

A PhD position in molecular chemistry and organic photovoltaics is opened for 36months, starting from October 1, 2018, at Centre de Nanoscience de Marseille (CINaM) of Aix Marseille University in the framework of TASC project funded by A*Midex TASC (Triplet-generating Acceptor SemiConductors for organic photovoltaics) consortium includes two academic partners : IMMF team of CINaM and STeRéO team of Institut des Sciences Moléculaires de Marseille (iSm2).

Project : The research project aims at the generation of a novel class of fused polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and their application as organic semiconductors in solar cells as alternative to fullerenes. The candidate will be involved in the development of a general and straightforward synthetic method and the investigation of the solution and solid-state optical and electronic properties of the new materials.

PhD profile : We are looking for an applicant with a strong background in organic chemistry and a strong motivation to interact with TASC partners in a multidisciplinary environment. A knowledge in molecular spectroscopy (uv-vis absorption, fluorescence) and/or chemistry and characterization of π-conjugated materials will be appreciated.

Gross salary : 1768,55 €/month.

Candidates should send (closing date June 30, 2018)
- Curriculum vitae
- Complete list of academic achievements (exam marks, rankings)
- A cover letter describing motivation and previous research experience,
- Two letters of recommendation to be sent directly to the email addresses below.
