ESPCI global presentation :
The Industrial Physics and Chemistry school of the City of Paris (ESPCI Paris) is the first French Engineering school in the ranking of Shanghai (class 300/400). Distinguished by 6 Nobel prizes, this institution allies excellent research (1 publication a day), innovation (1 patent a week, 3 start-up a year) and interdisciplinary training by research. It welcomes 400 pupils engineers, 600 teachers-researchers and researchers. SPCI ParisTech is home to 18 high-profile laboratories advancing scientific knowledge and pioneering technical know-how in a variety of research areas, ranging from polymers to telecommunications, from nanobiophysics to organic synthesis, from environmental science to biomedical imaging, from neurobiology to microfluidics, from soft matter to quantum physics, from colloids to prototyping for industry.

POSITION DESCRIPTION
Mission :
This scientific mission joins within the framework of research works towards more stable and more performing hybrid perovskite halide solar cells. The objective of this study concerns the investigation on the stability and the efficiency of both standard and semi-transparent perovskite solar cells, and relevant engineering approaches to enhance their figure-of-merits. The work will involve material synthesis, solar cell device fabrication and characterizations, as well as material characterizations by optical and spectroscopic means. Fundamental investigations to unravel the physical roots on the solar cell instability will be performed.

Hierarchical environment : The Physics and Materials Study Laboratory (LPEM) is a joint research unit of ESPCI, CNRS and UPMC (UMR8213). The lab brings together 67 people, including 33 researchers and teachers, 7 engineers, administrative and technical staff and 22 PhD students and postdocs. Its research activities are divided along three groups such as Nanophysics/Nanostructures and Nanomaterials, Low dimensionality and strongly correlated electronic systems and Instrumentation. To accomplish all of this research, the group of instrumentation LPEM has powerful equipment in microwave and telecommunications, infrared optics, electromagnetic and analytic simulation tools, dielectric characterization, and cryogenics. Within the Lab of Physics and Material science (LPEM-UMR 8213), the candidate will join the Instrumentation team, within the framework of activities led on the reconfiguration of microwave functions at nanoscale.

Time period : 01/10/2021 – 31/12/2021
Salary : 2500 euros/month (taxes included)

CANDIDATE PROFILE
PhD certificate in material science, or physics, or chemistry. Technical expertise in perovskite halide solar cell fabrication is expected.
