We are looking for talented and highly-motivated students who would like to pursue PhD research in a world-class research group in the exciting area of perovskite photovoltaics and optoelectronics. Our research spans both theoretical and experimental studies of hybrid organic-inorganic perovskite semiconductors, and their application in high-efficiency solar cells, tandem solar cells, and other optoelectronic devices.
Our group has established an excellent international reputation set several records, including a efficiency records for a 1cm2 perovskite cell, a perovskite – CIGS tandem cell and four-terminal perovskite-silicon tandem solar cell.
We are seeking outstanding PhD candidates to contribute to multiple research projects funded by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency and the Australian Research Council.
More information on the research group and our current projects can be found here: anuperovskites.wixsite.com/mysite
Our school has an outstanding track record in developing and commercialising new photovoltaic concepts, and collaborating with industry partners. It is internationally recognised for world-leading research on silicon solar cell technology, and more recently perovskite photovoltaics, including perovskite-silicon tandems. It is also a key member of two Australian Solar Energy Research Institutes, including the Australian Centre for Advanced Photovoltaics (ACAP).
