PhD Positions/Studentships

We are always on the look out for bright and enthusiastic students looking to explore problems at the frontier of nanoscale physics, physical chemistry and materials science. PhD students have the freedom to work in any of the groups areas of interest including solar energy harvesting in molecular and hybrid photovoltaics devices, long range charge and energy transfer processes in optoelectronic devices and the physics of novel semiconductors such as hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites, quantum dots and 2D semiconductors. Experimental work can range from ultrafast spectroscopy to the synthesise and design of new nanostructured materials and devices.

We provide a highly international and collaborative research environment within the world leading Optoelectronics Group at the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge. 

The deadline for funded positions will be in the first week of December 2017 for a start in October 2018.

Get in touch with ASAP us if you are interested in our work and would like to explore the possibility of doing a PhD in the group.
