Cardiff University is seeking to recruit a Postdoctoral Research Associate within the area of inkjet printing solution-processed compound semiconductor nanocrystals (colloidal quantum dots, colloidal quantum wells etc.) for image sensing applications. The post holder will be located in Cardiff, Wales, UK and work in Dr Bo Hou’s research group at the School of Physics and Astronomy.
This project will focus on inkjet printing pixelated colloidal quantum wells for image sensing applications. The key responsibilities of candidates are to conduct the colloidal quantum dots/quantum wells synthesis and inkjet fabrication of the image sensing devices and integration with the active matrix backplane. This work will also involve a fundamental materials and device analysis and viable integration and image processing technologies.
Candidates with strong research experience and publication track records in colloidal quantum dot/ quantum wells synthesis, inkjet printing and compound semiconductor microelectronics and image sensors, and printable organic electronics are highly recommended to apply for this position. The post is for 24 months at the first instance.
Please submit your completed application form, your full CV and a covering letter with a summary of your experience.
