ESTABLIS announces 13 open positions (PhD and PostDocs) across Europe

Establis (Ensuring Stability in Organic Solar Cells) is an interdisciplinary research and training network funded in the frame of European Marie Curie Actions (FP7). The project is aiming at developing the materials and techniques for cheap, flexible organic solar cells (OSCs) with ten year lifetimes and building-integrated large scale applications with more than fifteen year lifetimes. Eleven Partners and three Associated Partners both academic and private structures from across Europe are involved in Establis.

Ten PhD and three Postdoc positions are now open for application. All posts are tailored to give complementary studies across preconceived scientific boundaries, ranging from nano-scale profiling, through photo-emission spectroscopy, rheology, charge recombination studies, organic and polymer synthesis, to formulation. All successful candidates will receive close mentoring to become leading scientists in solar cell related fields.

We seek highly motivated, well-organised students capable of developing and fostering collaborative research. We highly encourage women to apply. In ESTABLIS at least 40% of the position should be held by women.

The successful candidates will be working at the highest industrial and university research levels and will build extremely well-sought after CVs. The Phd and Postdoc will receive crossscience training in areas ranging from polymer chemistry and physics through opto-electronics to industrial-scale photovoltaic device manufacture. They will aslo receive complementary training in various field such as career development, entrepeunarial skills, project management, etc. All the fellows will participate in the numerous workshops and be involved in outreach activities organised during the timelife of the project.

All fellowships are to start on the 1st of September 2012.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
