You will be working in the research group of Dr Ross Hatton on an exciting project developing novel electrodes for the emerging generation of thin film photovoltaic devices (namely, perovskite and organic photovoltaics). The project will span electrode design, fabrication and testing in devices, and so represents an inherently interdisciplinary research training opportunity at the interface between chemistry and materials science.
Dr Hatton is part of the Physical Chemistry Section in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Warwick and his research group is housed in the newly built £24M Materials and Analytical Sciences building. For further information about the Hatton group see: http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/chemistry/research/hatton/
Enquiries, which should include a CV with the names of two referees, should be made to Dr Ross Hatton ([email protected]
An eligible student must hold, or be predicted to obtain, at least a 2.1 degree in Chemistry or Physics. This studentship is only open to UK nationals and those of equivalent status* (fees paid, plus annum stipend) or EU Nationals (fees only, no stipend) due to funding restrictions. Availability is for 3.5 years beginning on 1st October 2016.
We can only offer the stipend to UK citizens or EU-citizens who have lived in the UK for over 3 years (e.g. as a student). EU-citizens not resident in the UK may not be paid a stipend, and only university course fees will be paid. Applicants from outside the EU are not eligible for this post due to restrictions on funding.
