The PEPPERONI partners from the University of Liège and BRGM invite applications for a PhD position to investigate material criticality within the life-cycle of silicon-perovskite tandem solar cells. This three-year role will be shared equally between the University of Liège, Belgium, and BRGM, France.
Focus: The successful candidate will explore critical raw materials essential for silicon-perovskite tandem solar cell fabrication. Working within the PEPPERONI consortium, a successful candidate will harmonise life-cycle data, map mineral raw material supply chains, and develop a transformative criticality assessment method applicable to transformed products and components.
Requirements: Candidates should hold a Master’s degree in chemical engineering, energy, economics, or environmental sciences. Familiarity with life-cycle assessment tools, English proficiency, and a deep interest in low-carbon technologies and socio-environmental concerns are essential.
Application Process: To apply, submit your motivation letter, curriculum vitae, and master’s degree transcript by 5 September 2023, to the secretariat of the Chemical Engineering department ([email protected]) and BRGM human resources department ([email protected]).
