Qualification Details

  • You have a PhD degree in Power Electronics, Physics, Chemistry or related fields.
  • You are a team player and have strong communication skills.
  • You are interested in a longer-term commitment in a growing research group.
  • You are fluent in English, both spoken and written.

Responsibilities/Job Description

  • You will conduct research and development of new and improved dielectric materials with an aim to realize capacitor devices that are efficient and reliable at both high temperatures and high voltages. This includes the development of new polymer/inorganic nanocomposite dielectric materials for capacitor applications combined with ion beam irradiation as a new approach to alter the material properties. It will also include the fabrication and characterization of the capacitor devices as well as validation of the experimental results by theoretical modelling.
  • You will be involved in the daily supervision of PhD, Master and Bachelor students.
  • You will publish and present your work both at international conferences and in scientific journals with high impact.
