Post-doctoral researcher for Thin-film Building Integrated Photovoltaics with Thermal Absorbers (BIPV/T) (100%)

The Chair of Architecture and Building Systems (A/S) at ETH Zurich is an international and highly interdisciplinary research group within the Institute of Technology in Architecture (ITA). In this renowned, vibrant and highly innovative setting, you will have the chance to work on solutions for some of the most pressing questions of our times. We have an immediate opening for a

Post-doctoral researcher for Thin-film Building Integrated Photovoltaics with Thermal Absorbers (BIPV/T) (100%)

We are looking for a candidate to integrate aluminum roll-bond solar collectors with CIGS thin-film solar cells in a novel PVT solar collector. Due to the high absorption of CIGS and the thinness of the PV layer together with the efficient design of the roll- bond absorber, it is expected that the system reaches a very high efficiency for solar energy conversion. The objectives of this position are structured in two main tasks with equal importance: 1) Theoretical system modeling and design, and 2) Fabrication, Characterization and Optimization. More details on the tasks can be found on our website (www.systems.arch.ethz.ch)

The candidate should have a Ph.D. degree in mechanical or electrical engineering, architectural engineering, physics or other relevant background from building systems, heat transfer or photovoltaics. Furthermore, she/he should have strong analytical skills, ee detail-oriented and at the same time able to think at a system level. We expect experience with modeling tools (Matlab, Python, EnergyPlus, Finite element method) and work both theoretically and experimentally. Excellent communications skills and command of English is essential. German skills are welcome, but not mandatory. ETH is an equal opportunity employer and offers a competitive salary. The position is initially limited to one year, with an option for extension.
