The Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) is one of the most dynamic university campuses in Europe and ranks among the top 20 universities worldwide. The EPFL employs 6,000 people supporting the three main missions of the institutions: education, research and innovation. The EPFL campus offers an exceptional working environment at the heart of a community of 16,000 people, including over 10,000 students and 3,500 researchers from 120 different countries.

Your mission :
GMF and IPESE from EPFL are looking for a prominent scientist (post doc or equiv.) with an engineering background (micro-technic, micro/nano fabrication) to develop a fast experimentation device in the field of the Perovskite solar cells with high throughput production techniques. The work will mainly concern the development of an integrated approach for developing, testing and producing Perovskite cells systems.

Main duties and responsibilities include :
  • Together with manufacturing and mechanical design researchers from the HES, develop a manufacturing process to make Perovskite cells production automatic in the perspective of high throughput experiments.
  • Integrate machine learning and design of experiments in the automatic production line.
  • Extrapolate the production lines concept to industrial scale

Your profile :
Engineering in micro technic or micro fabrication with experience in manufacturing processes development integrating techniques like 3D printing, PVD or nano-deposition and process automation for high throughput operation with an interest in machine learning and advanced manufacturing techniques

We offer :

Candidate with the will of transforming the research results as a commercial product would be a plus.

The candidate will be integrated in a multi-disciplinary research team that targets the development and the demonstration of a high throughput Perovskite cell production line to be used in a research and development environment.
