PhD Student: Thin Films and Interfaces Group 261 views

The Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) is inviting applications for a PhD Student for the Thin Films and Interfaces Group.

About the position:
  • The selected candidate will investigate the electronic structure of the surface of thin films of materials for photoelectrochemical solar water splitting.
  • The PhD student will be involved in the fabrication by pulsed laser deposition of thin films of various photocatalytic materials and will be responsible for their structural, morphological, and photoelectrochemical characterizations. The electronic structure of these materials will be explored at the Advanced Resonant Spectroscopies Adress and Surface / Interface Spectroscopy SIS beamlines of the Swiss Light Source.
  • The candidate will be embedded in the PSI’s scientific community and, besides own research; will be involved in support of external users of the Swiss Light Source from around the world.
