Ph.D. in the preparation and characterization of organic materials for plastic electronics


Tuesday, December 15, 2020 Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

About the Project

A financed Ph.D. position is available in the research group of Photophysical Characterization of Conjugated Materials at the Université de Montréal. The research will focus on the synthesis and characterization of conjugated organic materials for self-healing stretchable opto-electronic applications (electrochromic devices, light emitting diodes, photovoltaics). During the course of the thesis, the student will learn advanced synthetic and characterization skills. The student will be trained in steady-state and time-resolved spectroscopy and electrochemistry in addition to testing the materials’ mechanical properties. The student will also fabricate and characterize opto-electronic devices.

The ideal candidate will have experience in either organic synthesis or polymer synthesis. Candidates will also have previous experience in purifying compounds and working with air-sensitive reagents/products. Candidates must have a good understanding and some experience with standard characterization techniques including NMR and MS. Candidates preferably should have successfully completed a four-month work-placement (stage).

Applicants should send their cover letter, CV including relevant experience for the position and relevant academic courses, and transcripts (undergraduate and Master’s) all in PDF format via e-mail. The applicants should also provide the names of at least two referees, one of whom must be their Master’s/Undergraduate supervisor. Recommendation letters sent by the applicant will not be considered.

The Photophysical Characterization of Conjugated Materials research group at the Université de Montréal is located in an innovative centre for nanotechnology. State-of-the-art infrastructure and equipment for both materials and device testing and characterization are available in the research centre. The research group focuses on the preparation of characterization of conjugated materials for their ultimate use in plastic electronics. The group has published extensively. Additional information is available on the group website. Information about the graduate program in chemistry at the university is available at the following:
