Hybrid Inorganic/organic nano-materials for photovoltaic applications

Ph.D. (Doktorarbeit) projects are being offered in the field of hybrid inorganic nanoparticle-conductive polymer materials at the University of South Florida (USF). This collaborative project between USF and the University of Washington is funded through the NSF-SOLAR program. The focus of the projects centers around the investigation of charge transfer mechanisms within hybrid materials, as well as with surrounding matrices. Potential applications of these materials are in organic solar cells and plastic electronics. The preparative and analytical techniques include electrospray thin film deposition in vacuum and photoemission spectroscopy and inverse photoemission spectroscopy. Successful applicants are self-motivated individuals with diploma or masters degrees in chemistry or physics.  They have the ability to collaborate in an interdisciplinary team of engineers, chemists and biologists. The positions are also open to University of Applied Sciences (Fachhochschule) gradua
 tes in science and engineering disciplines. Start date is flexible.
The University of South Florida is one of the largest metropolitan universities of the US serving over 40,000 students and is located in Tampa, on the West Coast of Florida. Interested applicants should email (in English or German) a curriculum vitae, brief statement of research interests and names/e-mail/phone numbers of at least two references to Prof. Rudy Schlaf, Dept. of Electrical Engineering, University of South Florida, Tampa, FL 33620, USA, e-mail: schlaf(a)eng.usf.edu, web: http://rsl.eng.usf.edu/, Voice: +1-813-974-8463, FAX:+1-813-974-5250. Informal inquiries about the opportunities are welcome! USF is an equal opportunity employer. Applications of female and minority students are especially encouraged.

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 editor@nanopaprika.eu
