Open Positions

Characterization of defective states in hybrid Perovskite thin films for radiation sensor applications

The post-doc research activity is focused on monitoring defect states and compositional changes of the perovskite layers. The analyses will be carried out by electrical and optical characterization methods (temperature dependent current-voltage and capacitance voltage analyses), charge spectroscopy techniques (Deep Level Transient Spectroscopy, Photo induced transient spectroscopy) and Surface Photovoltage Spectroscopy.

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD)

Postdoctoral Researchers International Mobility Experience – PRIME 2019/20
The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) initiated the PRIME programme to support the international mobility of postdoctoral researchers by temporary positions at German universities in place of conventional stipends. Postdoctoral researchers of all nationalities, who see their long-term career perspectives in Germany, will be given the opportunity to combine temporary employment at a German university with a research stay abroad.
