Joining Us

We are always looking for enthusiastic and talented researchers to join our team. Please find information on doing so below, and get in touch if you are interested in joining us.



PhD studentships to commence in October 2018 available now. The studentships are associated with our recently-funded ERC Starting Grant HYPERION, which focuses on fundamentally understanding and subsequently eliminating key loss mechanisms in metal halide perovskite photovoltaic and light-emitting devices. This will be achieved by investigating relationships between the photophysics and chemical and structural properties of metal halide perovskite thin films, nanostructures and crystals across orders of magnitude in length scale. The fundamental understanding gained will be used to rationally eliminate non-radiative loss processes in perovskite materials and full devices. Finally, next generation devices including perovskite-perovskite tandem PV cells and novel white-light LEDs will be constructed with minimal losses. The studentships will focus on one or more of these areas.

If interested, please contact Sam Stranks ( and make a formal application to the University.

There are currently no open post-doc positions. Please check back here regularly for further openings.



Please find here information about applications to the Department of Physics for the MPhil or PhD programs including relevant deadlines. Please find details of funding opportunities here and here. The primary sources of funding are as follows, though it is also worth exploring the EPSRC Doctoral Training Centres.
