PhD Studentship Development of Barrier Encapsulation for Flexible Energy Storage and Photovoltaic Devices

Outstanding international students are invited to apply for a PhD scholarship in semiconductors at Monash University. Successful candidate will have funding to work and study for 5 years in Australia. Potential candidates should apply before February 21, 2020.

A fully-funded PhD studentship is available for immediate start. It is jointly supervised by Monash University and CSIRO through the financial support from the Australia-India Strategic Research Fund - AISRF. It will involve working as part of the Printable PV team at CSIRO's Flexible Electronics Laboratory, to work on a research project on flexible and printable electronics devices.

The supervisors are Professor George Simon (Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Monash University and Dr Hasitha Weerasinghe (Manufacturing Flagship, CSIRO)

The project involves close research collaboration with Monash University, CSIRO, Indian Institute of Science - Bangalore, India as well as an Australian industrial partner (Norwood Industries).

During the project, you will work on highly promising next-generation Flexible Electronics device technologies (Photovoltaics and Batteries) within a team of highly skilled research scientists, postdoctoral and research graduate students at CSIRO and Monash University.

The primary focus will be on developing New Barrier Encapsulation for Flexible Energy Storage and Photovoltaic (PV) devices. You will be expected to develop strong fundamental knowledge and skills in the area of thin-film deposition and characterisation, fabrication of flexible PV and battery device using state-of-the-art printing and coating facilities at CSIRO. You will also be part of advanced device characterization, encapsulation and stability studies, and studying the degradation mechanisms of flexible battery and PV devices at CSIRO and Monash

You will benefit from visits and secondments to the academic and industrial collaborators both in India and Australia, allowing you to build up experience and skills for careers within academia or industry.

The stipend is $27,872 per annum (tax-free) for up to 3.5 years

Successful candidates will also be able to apply for a competitive CSIRO Postgraduate Top-up scholarship. If successful, the student will receive an additional $7,000 per year on their stipend, plus a generous operating budget of up to $10,000 per annum.

Applicants should have completed a Bachelor's degree with first-class honors. They may also have completed a Master's degree in either Materials Science and Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry or Physics.

Desirable skills include some research experience in the subject area of film deposition techniques, semiconductors, solar energy, and electronics. In addition to technical skills, excellent English and scientific writing ability are desired.

Both CSIRO and Monash University are values-based organisations.
