    • A master’s degree in a field related to the PhD project topic, such as engineering or physics.
    • The preferred candidate has experience in microfabrication techniques (in particular vacuum-based thin-film deposition), thin-film/surface characterization techniques and/or device physics and fabrication.
    • Moreover, the preferred candidate has strong skills in communicating scientific results in English (written and spoken), can work well in a team as well as independently, and can quickly acquire new knowledge.


    • The research focus of the PhD project is to develop photodetectors based on a graphene-organic semiconductor heterostructure.
    • It will be a primarily experimental project that focuses on investigations of how the organic thin-film microstructure can be optimized for improved photodetector device performance.
    • The project includes thin-film deposition and characterization experiments as well as device fabrication and testing.
