Thin-film solar is the future of solar energy. Our mission is sharing this future with you.

SHAPE A GREEN FUTURE WITH US

Opportunity from PhD students with a grant

Are you looking for an opportunity to execute your thin-film PV PhD in a vibrant and connected ecosystem? Within Solliance, universities, research institutes and companies collaborate to develop, produce and apply thin-film PV with all its potential to embed it in our direct environment. We would like to share our cutting-edge expertise and facilities with you! Here you can find everything you need, from world famous professors, their research teams and their well-equipped laboratories up to pilot production facilities at our institute partners. With this opportunity, you can embrace all facets of our international ecosystem.

We are interested in enthusiastic people with individual grants, looking for a place to execute their PhD or postdoc position. This can be embedded in a combination of our academic partners and our semi-industrial ecosystem. Please apply, fill in the form below with your project proposal related to thin-film photovoltaics and add your resume.

Please note: you can only apply via this form in case you are a prospective PhD student or postdoctoral candidate with an individual grant.
