KU Leuven is one of the top 50 universities in the world (top 11 in general Engineering in Europe) according to the 2022 "Times Higher Education" ranking, and ranks #7 (top in Europe) in the 2019 "World’s Most Innovative Universities" ranking elaborated by Reuters. KU Leuven offers an exciting multi-disciplinary research environment, a broad range of training courses for PhD students and postdocs, and full social and medical insurance.
 
Located in Belgium, at the heart of Europe, and less than 3 hours by train from cities like Paris, London, or Amsterdam, Leuven is a cultural and historical city with a vibrant international student lifestyle.

Open positions at FMolina-Lopez Research Lab
PhD opportunities

1. Materials characterization and transfer printing of electrodes on thin-film semimetal crystals: The goal of this experimental Ph.D./postdoc research is to help develop the first thermoelectric cooler device exploiting the quantum properties of Weyl semimetals within the framework of the EOS project CONNECT. The project combines material characterization (mostly by XRD and TEM) Weyl semimetal crystalline thin films developed by our colleagues at imec and the department of Physics, and the development of a solvent-free patterning technique for electrodes. The thermoelectric properties of the films will be characterized by our partner Prof. P. Gehring at UC Lovain. Therefore, strong interaction with those groups is foreseen.  The ideal starting date is September 2022. If you are interested, please click here for more information and to apply through the KU Leuven online application tool. The deadline for application is June 15th!

There are currently no open positions. However, we are always happy to hear from outstanding motivated candidates!

Postdoctoral researcher opportunities

1. Development of 3D printable organic thermoelectric materials with improved performance via multiscale ordering, and their integration into flexible devices: This research focuses on the processing and characterization of organic electronic materials and their assessment as potential components of high-performing thermoelectric devices for wearables. Of crucial importance is the evaluation of the morphology-performance relation for both p- and n-type organic materials along with the development of sustainable routes for device integration based on printing electronics technologies. This project is funded by a European Union H2020 ERC grant 3DALIGN.
