Updated: 3 months ago
Deadline: 31 Dec 2019

We are seeking motivated student researchers to conduct state-of-the-art research in recently established Laboratory for Advanced Materials at Comenius University (CU) in Bratislava, Slovakia.

Development of semiconductor nanostructures for energy storage and conversion applications.

The focus of the project is on synthesis and characterization of nanostructures based on luminescent semiconductor nanocrystals, study of their activity in electro and photocatalysis and their utilization in optoelectronics and electronics. The work will be performed at LAM.

Where will you work? The research will be performed at an EU financed, newly established Laboratory for Advanced Materials (LAM), located in the recently constructed CU Science Park ( ). As a PhD student you will be participating in a multi-disciplinary research effort including design and preparation of new materials, their chemical, structural and electronic characterization using variety of advanced characterization methods and development of their applications in energy conversion and storage, optoelectronic and electronics. Your participation in this research will include opportunities to collaborate with other research teams from Comenius University, Slovak Academy of Sciences, Slovak Technical University, as well as our collaborators from other countries of EU and USA. As part of your studies you will have an opportunity to present your research results at various international conferences as well as participate in exchange research visits with our international collaborators.

If you are interested in the position, please contact Dr. Milan Sýkora via e-mail ( ). In the e-mail please state why would you like to work at LAM (in the context of your prior position/experience and your future plans) and attach a CV (one-page max.).
