PhD studentship on the analysis of charge dynamics in organic and perovskite solar cells

Department of Chemistry

, Applications accepted all year round Funded PhD Project (UK Students Only)

About the Project

Supervisor: James Durrant (Chemistry); Co-supervisor: Piers Barnes (Physics)
Duration: 3.5 years, starting as soon as possible.

Only available to home (UK) students. Standard EPSRC London weighted bursary.

Applicants are invited for a fully funded studentship on the analysis of charge dynamics in organic and perovskite solar cells, aligned with the recently awarded EPSRC programme grant ‘Application targeted and integrated photovoltaics (ATIP)’ (

The project will focus in the use of time and frequency domain analyses of printed solar cells developed under this programme, including transient photovoltage and photocurrent analyses, alongside impedance and photoluminescence measurements, building upon expertise in the Durrant and Barnes groups in these techniques. The project is most suited to applicants with a background in physics, electric engineering or physical chemistry. There will be extensive opportunities for training and external collaboration, both with ATIP and within Imperial’s Centre for Processable Electronics, as well as the supervision of master students and undergraduate teaching.

Interested applicants please contact Prof. James Durrant / Piers Barnes
