PhD-student Energy-selective plasmonic nanoreactors
Energy-selective plasmonic nanoreactors
About the group
The Nanoscale Solar Cells group synthesizes advanced metal and semiconducting nanostructures, characterizes their material properties and integrates them into novel device structures with the aim of improving our fundamental understanding of light absorption, charge separation, recombination and transport at the nanometer scale. It has developed a world-class single particle spectroscopy setup capable of driving and monitoring chemistry using light in energy-selective plasmonic nanoreactors that will be at the heart of this project.
The applicant should have a bachelor’s and master’s degree in chemistry, physics, materials science or a relevant engineering discipline. The MSc-degree is a requirement to be eligible for a Dutch PhD examination.
Terms of employment
The position is intended as full-time (40 hours / week, 12 months / year) appointment in the service of the Netherlands Foundation of Scientific Research Institutes (NWO-I) for the duration of four years, with a starting salary of gross € 2,441 per month and a range of employment benefits. After successful completion of the PhD research a PhD degree will be granted at the University of Amsterdam. Several courses are offered, specially developed for PhD-students. AMOLF assists any new foreign PhD-student with housing and visa applications and compensates their transport costs and furnishing expenses.
