Project Description

The Labram Group in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at Oregon State University is looking to hire a full-time PhD student starting September 2019. You will be funded by the Labram Group, and will work on experimental and theoretical projects in the development of next-generation flexible electronics. Candidates must have received an undergraduate degree in electrical engineering, materials science, physics, or a related discipline by 20th September 2019. Interested candidates should use the from below to submit a full CV / resume, along with a brief statement on research interests (roughly half a page) by 30th April 2019. Informal inquires can be made via .

Oregon State University is located in Corvallis, in the beautiful Pacific-Northwest of the United States. Further information can be found below:

Hybrid halide perovskites are a class of materials possessing opto-electronic properties which are, by many metrics, remarkable. Despite being extensively studied for only 5-10 years, and processed from solution at low-temperature, solar cells based on these compounds have already exhibited power-conversion efficiencies in excess of polycrystalline silicon (the commercial standard). Yet in spite of their amazing electrical properties, they have been scarcely studied for electronics (transistor) applications.

In this project you will develop thin-film transistors from these compounds, with the goal of creating circuits capable of processing information based on optical signals, as well as electrical signals. The superb absorption- and charge-transport-properties of these compounds suggest they are excellent contenders for commercial applications. The field of hybrid halide perovskites is a young, but fast-moving field, where you will have the opportunity to generate high very impact work.

Funding Notes

The project is suitable for candidates who have, or expect to obtain, at least a 2:1-class degree (or equivalent) in electrical engineering, materials science, physics, or a related discipline.
