Description of the thesis topic
The European Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network HORATES brings together 8 academic institutions, including universities and research centers, and 5 companies, from 6 EU countries. The network is supported by 5 more partners, including 2 companies. The mission of the HORATES network is to use the large expertise on all aspects of hybrid and organic thermoelectrics that is available in the EU for (a) the strategic training of excellent young researchers in an emerging, interdisciplinary field and (b) the rational development of prototype energy harvesters, inspired by actual market demand.
We are looking for 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) to be appointed at the host organisations within HORATES.
ICS offers 1 Fellowship on “Design, fabrication and characterization of stable and efficient thermoelectric materials”. The ESR will develop an expertise in the fabrication of polymeric TE materials with enhanced TE efficiency. In particular, new processing methods including polymer orientation and controlled doping protocols will be developed. The materials will be integrated into polymeric thermoelectric generators.
The future PhD will be primarily operating at the Institute Charles Sadron in Strasbourg, in the group “SYCOMMOR” led by Dr. Martin Brinkmann.
Constraints and risks
The candidate must have a Master in Material science (physics or chemistry). The position requires sound knowledge in material science, polymers and organic electronics. A high level of communication skills, both oral and written (English mandatory and French optional) is requested to be able to present at conferences and write articles in scientific publications. We are looking for a PhD fellow who will be able to become fully involved and autonomous within the pluridisciplinaire project. In addition, the candidate must be able to work in a team, in particular with the partners of the ITN project.
Applications must include a detailed CV; at least two recommendation letters from two referees; a motivation letter; grades for the Masters 1 and 2.
