Doped organic semiconductors are becoming increasingly important for organic electronics and they are frequently used as charge transport layers in organic solar cell, light emitting diode and field effect transistor devices, but also in sensors and thermoelectric devices. Doping consists of adding extra positive or negative charge on conjugated molecules and/or small organic molecules that significantly increases their conductivity. Despite the growing number of applications of doped organic semiconductors, their fundamental properties are not clearly elucidated. You will work with a set of experimental methods based on ultrafast lasers, such as transient absorption and time domain THz spectroscopy with a clear focus on fundamental aspects on doped organic materials.

The main objectives of this position are the investigation of the excited-state dynamics and short-range transport properties of doped organic materials. This will lead to a deeper understanding of the electronic structure, the doping mechanism and the short-range conductivity of doped organic materials, and their correlation to the molecular properties of the dopant/host systems and the doping concentration.

UniBE - PhD Position on Ultrafast Spectroscopy in Doped Organic Materials

Your job

Your profile

We are seeking for a motivated researcher who should have completed a Master or equivalent degree in chemistry, physics, photonics or materials science. Preference will be given to candidates with some experience in ultrafast spectroscopy or organic electronics. You should have an independent and solution-driven work attitude, as well as the ability to evolve in an interdisciplinary environment. You should have an independent and solution-driven work attitude, to have collaborative skills to work in an interdisciplinary environment.
