Joint fully Funded Scholarship between The University of Bayreuth and University of Melbourne (Germany/Australia)

EIGHT PHD FUNDED PROJECTS AVAILABLE AS PART OF THE UBT-UOM JOINT PHD

The University of Bayreuth and University of Melbourne are currently offering places for high-achieving candidates to complete their PhD studies under joint supervision from both Universities. Candidates will spend at least 12 months in each country and benefit from the research expertise of researchers in both countries. Scholarships will also include travel support.

The candidates will be supported by their supervisors in each place as well as a well established research network between Melbourne and Bayreuth and an active partnership.

Melbourne-based candidates should apply to a specific project (listed below) and send the following to Professor Paul Mulvaney at the University of Melbourne (mulvaney@unimelb.edu.au).

  • your current CV
  • a letter of motivation outlining your interest in the specific topic and in a German/Australian joint PhD (200-500 words)
  • academic transcripts

Bayreuth-based candidates should contact: melbourne@uni-bayreuth.de.

RESEARCH TOPICS

EXPLORING EXCITON LOGIC GATES FOR HIGH-DENSITY DATA STORAGE AND ULTRAFAST COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGIES

PROJECT AND SCHOLARSHIP DETAILS

Examine and manipulate energy flow for energy-harvesting applications with a focus on the data storage and ultrafast communication technology components.

Project lead: Professor Paul Mulvaney

DEVELOPMENT OF POLYMERIC SINGLET FISSION MATERIALS TO IMPROVE THE EFFICIENCY OF SOLAR CELLS

PROJECT AND SCHOLARSHIP DETAILS

Improve the efficiency of solar cells by effectively harnessing polymeric singlet fission materials.

Project lead: Dr David Jones

IMPROVING ENERGY CONVERSION EFFICIENCY THROUGH SYNTHESIS AND MANIPULATION OF SEMICONDUCTING BLOCK COPOLYMERS

PROJECT AND SCHOLARSHIP DETAILS

Induction of block copolymer self-assembly for high performance organic photovoltaic devices and the characterisation thereof to increase exciton separation efficiency and charge mobility in organic photovoltaic devices.

Project lead: Dr David Jones

CONTROL OF EXCITONS IN SINGLE POLYMER CHAINS

PROJECT AND SCHOLARSHIP DETAILS

The overall mission of ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science (ACEx) is to examine and manipulate the way light energy is absorbed, transported and transformed in advanced molecular materials. Nanofabricated structures will be fabricated and conjugated polymers will be studied in using single molecule spectroscopic techniques in both Melbourne and Bayreuth working with Prof. Jürgen Köhler.

Project lead: Prof. Trevor Jones

STUDY LIGHT PULSE CONTROL OF EXCITONS

PROJECT AND SCHOLARSHIP DETAILS

Nanofabricated structures will be fabricated and conjugated polymers will be studied in using single molecule spectroscopic techniques in both Melbourne and Bayreuth working with Prof. Jürgen Köhler.
