Postdoctoral Researcher Vacancies

A Post-Doctoral Research Assistant position in the group of Prof Henry Snaith at the Clarendon Laboratory, Parks Road, Oxford - Application deadline 5 January 2023 at midday UK time.

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant who will work on an exciting new Horizon Europe project entitled Perovskite solar cells with enhanced stability and applicability (VALHALLA).

The aim of the VALHALLA project is to develop perovskite solar cells and modules with power conversion efficiencies above 26% (23% for modules) and an extrapolated lifetime > 25 years, guided by eco-design principles that decrease the environmental impact of perovskite photovoltaics: scalable production processes, without the use of harmful solvents, optimised use of materials, circularity and recyclability.

The post will be based in the sub department of Condensed Matter Physics and will report to Professor Henry Snaith. 

Coordinated by University of Valencia, the VALHALLA project is supported by a multidisciplinary consortium with 12 partners from 8 European countries; two industrial partners, including one small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs); and eight research and technology organizations/universities. The project will aim to deliver a stable, efficient and low environmental impact thin-film PV technology based on metal halide perovskites.
