Available Postdoc and PhD Positions in the CPE

PhD position: The synthesis and study of chiral materials for circularly polarised OLEDs

This project is funded by the Marie Curie Training Network “HEL4CHIROLED: Helical molecules for chiral OLEDs”. The student will join our chiral materials group and work on the chemistry/materials science of chiral conjugated molecules. The applicant must be from the EU (i.e. non-UK) and selection of the successful candidate will most likely take place in early 2020.

PhD position: Azoheteroarenes: Next-generation solid-state solar thermal fuels for heat release applications

This is a project offered through the Imperial College Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet Doctoral Training Partnership. It aims to further develop and study our photoswitches for use in solar thermal fuels. Further project details can be found hereThe applicant must be from the UK or an EU student who had already been in the UK for 3 years and the deadline for the student application is early January 2020.

PhD position: Chirality-led design of organic semiconducting materials

This is a project offered by the Advanced Characterisation of Materials CDT. This project will build on our work on chiral materials/devices, studying how the helical shape and molecular structure of the helicenes impact bulk packing, and how, in turn, do such packing motifs influence materials properties (optical properties, charge transport, spin states and spin transport). The applicant must be from the UK or an EU student who had already been in the UK for 3 years and the deadline for the student application is 5th January 2020.
