Applications are invited for a Research Associate position within the Experimental Solid State Physics Group of the Department of Physics. You will be required to carry out research into “Organic and Hybrid Electronic Materials and Devices for Photovoltaic and Photosensor Applications” under Global Research Laboratory (GRL) programme funded by National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF). This research will focus on: (1) the interfacial energetics, (2) the photogenerated charge carrier dynamics, and (3) the origin of traps (molecular, interfacial, and/or morphological), and their impact on device performance.
Duties and responsibilities
You will be expected to fabricate devices and to utilise a range of advanced optical and optoelectronic spectroscopic techniques including: ambient photoemission, surface photovoltage, and Raman spectroscopy. In addition, you will also be expected to work closely and effectively with our collaborators, in particular our project partners in Korea.
You will have a PhD in Physics, Physical Chemistry, Materials or Engineering or an equivalent level of professional qualification and experience.
You must also be able to demonstrate the following essential criteria:
In addition to above, the following would be advantageous:
