Mads Clausen Institute, NanoSYD, OPV Group invites applications for a fully-funded Postdoc position in “ Synthesis and photophysical characterization of bio-inspired organic nanoparticles for green energy technologies ”. The starting date is July 1st 2021, or as soon as possible thereafter, for a 1-year period with the possibility of extension.

What we offer

The Postdoc project is part of the Carlsberg Young Researcher Fellowship project “ArtPlast Artificial chloroplasts: Nature-inspired electronic molecular nanoparticle platform”, which is conducted in collaboration with Aarhus University, Karlstad University, Skoltech Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, University of Glasgow and University of Oxford. The main goal of the postdoc work will be to characterize the photophysical processes within newly developed bio-mimetic organic semiconductor based nanoparticles, to be used as photocatalysts for hydrogen production via water splitting and as active layers in organic solar cells. By testing and controlling the fundamental photophysical and photochemical properties, we will identify the morphology vs. electrical properties relations in these materials, and tailor guidelines for synthesis of such systems.

The majority of your working time is devoted to your own research studies. As a Postdoc you are expected to develop your own ideas and communicate scientific results in English.

What we expect

Candidates with a relevant PhD (chemistry, physics, material science, electrical engineering or similar) and with previous experience relevant to the mentioned project may seek the position. Preferred candidates have experience with some of the following: transient spectroscopy, nanoparticle synthesis, colloidal chemistry, organic semiconductors, polymer additives, antioxidants, photooxidation characterization techniques Fourier Transform IR spectroscopy, transient electrical measurements such as CELIV, electron spin resonance spectroscopy, synchrotron-based measurements), photocatalysis of water for hydrogen production and/or photovoltaic device physics. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the work, the candidate is expected to have excellent collaboration skills. A very good capability of communicating scientific results in English, both orally and in writing is required.

Workplace description / Research environment

We are an international research group working in the field of green energy technologies ( Group), and we are looking for a highly motivated student to join our research team at University of Southern Denmark (SDU), campus Sønderborg, in development of materials systems for organic photocatalysis and photovoltaics. We offer a modern, inclusive, international and interdisciplinary working environment with state-of-the-art facilities as well as a strong tradition of international collaboration. Our ambition is, to recruit, develop, and retain talented scholars committed to both academic excellence and departmental development.

Having a focus on green energy technologies - improving performance, device stability and up-scaling, the group has full access to an ISOS5 cleanroom and surface science laboratory facility for the preparation and characterization, as well as a roll-to-roll facility for upscaling flexible devices. The research group is a partner in various national and international research projects and networks that include collaboration partners from both academia and industry.

This project will run as a part of a larger new activity on bio-inspired systems for organic energy technologies, sponsored by Carlsberg Young Researcher Fellowship and Independent Research Fund Denmark Green Transition funding.
