The University of Luxembourg is a multilingual, international research University.The University of Luxembourg is looking for a:


Research Associate (Postdoc) in the field of photovoltaics devices (M/F)

  • Ref: R-AGR-3228-00-B
  • Fixed-term contract for 2 years (extendable to 3 years)
  • 40 hours/week
  • Employee status


Research associate required as part of an international project on thin film photovoltaic devices at the University of Luxembourg within the Laboratory for Energy MaterialsThe scientific aim of this challenging project is to produce high quality compound semiconductors for photovoltaic devices using innovative synthesis methods. The heart of the project lies in producing low cost Cu(In,Ga)Se2 precursors which are then crystallized using a short laser pulse. The laser annealing will be carried out together with the University of Utah. If entirely successful this method would provide a way to produce high quality Cu(In,Ga)Se2 up to a 100 times faster with much reduced thermal cost.For further information about the group please

visit  or contact Dr Phillip Dale at


Your Role

  • Responsible for synthesizing Cu(In,Ga)Se2 precursors and semiconductors

  • Characterize precursors, semiconductors and full working solar cells

  • Publish interesting results in good international journals and conferences

  • Contribute to the education of Ph.D students within the laboratory


Your Profile

  • Solid experimental background in one or more of the following research fields: inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, materials science, or solid state physics.
  • Completing your Ph.D or having up to three years post-doctoral experience and have publications in international peer reviewed journals.
  • Excellent working knowledge of English.


We offer


A modern and well-equipped laboratory, a friendly team, international travel, a committed advisor, and an exciting multi-disciplinary, multilingual, international environment.
