 Call No. 02_16_027 for International Mobility of Researchers in Priority Axis 2 of the OP VVV

Project Name: Mobility Support at UP

Supported Activity No. 1 - Working stays of post-docs from abroad in the Czech Republic – Faculty of Science

Mobility No. 12

Hosting Institution/Faculty/Department: Regional Centre of Advanced Technologies and Materials

Mobility Location: Palacký University Olomouc, Czech Republic

Duration: 12 month

Term: 11/2018 - 10/2019

Mobility description:

The display market shows continuous interest in development of efficient emitters with high color purity and low cost that would be suitable for use in TVs, cell phones and other electronic appliances. Well-known organic light-emitting diodes (OLED) offer sufficiently large light efficiency, but on the other hand they exhibit low color purity that results in limited gamut. Further OLED drawbacks are low charge mobility, limited lifetime of organic materials, difficult color tuning and mainly high production costs. Organic-inorganic hybrid perovskite materials for LED diodes (so-called PeLED) on the other hand offer much higher color purity and significantly lower production costs. The main drawback of PeLED for broader commercial application  is its low stability against air humidity. In the framework of the mobility foreign researcher will deal with the development and realization of synthetic approaches for preparation of new materials constituting highly efficient and stable PeLED diodes for flexible displays. Research activity will be focused mainly on low-temperature deposition of multilayer system consisting of hybrid light-emitting organic-inorganic perovskites in the form of thin layers but also quantum dots core-shell structures.

The researcher is obliged to actively participate in a conference / seminar / workshop, etc. organized by the hosting institution at least once in every six months of the mobility.

Support for the Researcher’s Family: YES

To make it possible for a researcher to stay in close contact with his or her family members the researcher can receive financial support amounting to 13 197 CZK per each month of mobility. A family member is considered to be a spouse or a person with an equivalent relationship legally defined in the country where it was formalized; his or her dependent child or a dependent child placed into his or her foster care.

Salary Offered: from 62 953  CZK

Requirements for candidates:

Phase I

  • The candidate is a post-doc in accordance with the definition; that is, a researcher up to 7 years after being granted the Ph.D. degree or its foreign equivalent (equivalent to level 8 of ISCED) since the date of submitting the project application, and
  • Has been active outside the Czech Republic in the field of science and research with the working time of at least 0.5 for at least 2 years (as of the date of submitting the project application) within the last 3 years, or was a Ph.D. student abroad, and
  • Proves his/her publication activity (professional publications registered in the databases Web of Science, Scopus or ERIH PLUS, and at the same time publications in the form of “an article”, “book chapters”, “a letter” and “a review”) – at least 2 publication outputs in the last 3 years (as of the date of submitting the project application).

The candidates who fail to fulfil the criteria of Phase I set above will be excluded from the selection procedure. The candidates who fulfil the qualification criteria of Phase I proceed to the assessment within Phase II.

Assessment method:

Phase II

The fulfilment / non-fulfilment of exclusion criteria within Phase I, as well as the required expertise and requested documentation will be assessed by a committee consisting of at least three members.

The individual candidates will be assessed by the committee at a common meeting according to the following criteria:

Criterion 1:

The number and quality of articles in impact factor journals and other publications

Possible rating: min. 0, max. 40 points

Criterion 2:

Participation in scientific-research projects (international, national)

Possible rating: min. 0, max. 20 points

Criterion 3:

Benefits for the hosting institution within the respective field of study (scientific field) the candidate is applying for

Possible rating: min. 0, max. 20 points

Criterion 4:

The need for research in the particular field of study (scientific field)

Possible rating: min. 0, max. 10 points

Criterion 5:

Recommendation by the previous supervisor or the Head of the workplace/scientific-research team where the candidate operates

Possible rating: min. 0, max. 10 points

The maximum rating achievable is 100 points. When assessing the candidates with regard to criteria 1 and 2, the particular candidate achieves the number of points for fulfilling the particular criterion in accordance with the objectively identifiable value set above. When assessing the candidates with regard to criteria 3, 4 and 5, each member of the selection committee awards the points to the particular candidate individually at his/her discretion. The final number of points for the particular candidate is the arithmetic mean of the rating awarded by the individual committee members. The winner of the selection procedure is the candidate having achieved the most points in the assessment of the individual criteria.

A written record of the assessment procedure will be made, including the information about the composition of the assessment committee, the criteria of candidate assessment, the reasoning of ratings, and the name of the winner.

 

 

The results of the assessment procedure will be published on the UP website.
