|PhD student in Experimental Physics with Specialization in Organic Electronics at Umeå University
The PhD project comprises the study and development of a novel technology in organic electronics: a light-emitting electrochemical cell (LEC). Through basic studies of dynamic doping and light emission in thin semiconducting films, in combination with applied material and device development, the goal is a flexible, efficient and uniquely sustainable LEC device, which enables new and important applications in, for instance, medtech. The PhD project will be executed in The Organic Photonics and Electronics Group, and information on the group's ongoing activities can be found at: www.opeg-umu.se
The basic competence is acquired when an advanced level degree has been awarded, which comprises at least 240 ECTS credits, of which at least 60 ECTS credits must be at an advanced level.
The specific requirement to be accepted to the PhD education in Experimental Physics constitutes the award of at least 120 ECTS credits in Physics and Chemistry, of which at least 90 ECTS credits must be in Physics.
The award of corresponding credits in another credit system can also be considered a fulfillment of the competence requirements.
These requirements must be met at the time of employment, but not at the time of application.
The should requirements for the position constitute:
· Strong skills in English, as regards to both oral and written communication.
· Experience with experimental research, especially within the subject area of organic electronics, is considered a merit.
· Since the research environment is multidisciplinary and multicultural, you are expected to be interested and thrive in collaborations within a dynamic setting. It is further of uttermost importance that you exhibit a strong motivation for research in general and the PhD project in particular, that you are interested in both experimental and theoretical research tasks, and that you are goal oriented and capable of leading projects independently and in collaboration with other researchers.
The application must include:
· A letter that distinctly and clearly describes your qualifications, research interests and motivation for application.
· A curriculum vitae.
· Certified copies of diplomas and completed university courses with grades.
· A copy of the examination project and potential publications.
· Contact information of three reference persons.
