We present an electrothermal drift-diffusion model for organic semiconductor devices with Gauss-Fermi statistics and positive temperature feedback for the charge carrier mobilities. We apply temperature dependent Ohmic contact boundary conditions for the electrostatic potential and discretize the system by a finite volume based generalized Scharfetter-Gummel scheme. Using path-following techniques we demonstrate that the model exhibits S-shaped current-voltage curves with regions of negative differential resistance, which were only recently observed experimentally.
