A fully funded PhD studentship is available to work under the co-supervision of Dr Giorgio Volpe and Dr Matthew Blunt on the experimental development of a controllable printing method to deposit and self-assemble 2 dimensional Covalent Organic Frameworks (2D-COFs).
Solution processable molecular organic semiconductors are prime candidates to realise printable electronics. However a lack of control over molecular orientation and assembly is currently severely limiting their performance.
Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for one three-year PhD Studentship. The Studentship is fully funded by the Volkswagen Foundation and available from September 2019, depending on applicant availability.
