2.      Organic photovoltaics: interfacial states energy in organic heterojunctions solar cells.

3.      Excited states spectroscopy of organic semi-conductors

4.      Method development: time-resolved spectroscopy on solar cells.​

For these projects, applicants must have:

  • Completed a minimum of their third year of baccalaureate studies OR completed their baccalaureate (Bachelor’s degree) OR be pursuing a post-baccalaureate (Master’s degree). Currently enrolled KAUST students, KAUST Alumni, students who are currently in a Ph.D. program or those who have earned a Ph.D. are not eligible to participate.
