This scholarship is funded by the European Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network MAESTRO.
Subject areas: Roll to Roll Printed Electronics
Start date: October 2018 (or earlier if desired by candidate)
The European Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network MAESTRO brings 10 academic and 7 industrial beneficiaries together. MAESTRO is focused on perovskite semiconductors, a material shown in the last 4 years to have a major impact on solar power and potentially also in display technology. Research carried out by this intersectoral and multidisciplinary network aims to make perovskite based devices commercially viable. 15 doctoral researchers/PhDs employed by MAESTRO will have an opportunity to develop their skills in a broad area while involved in cross sector excellent research. PhDs will be trained in (i) science and technology across physics, chemistry, materials science, electrical engineering, in two major application areas, solar cells and light emitting diodes, and other uses such as lasers and photodiodes; (ii) exploitation from laboratory to fabrication; (iii) transferable skills of communication, information technology, organization, planning, teamwork, leadership; (iv) skills needed for innovation, such as understanding markets, product life cycles, business models, return on investment.
