About the Role
Funded by The Royal Society, we are seeking a postdoctoral research assistant to work on lead-halide perovskites. The post holder will be required to prepare single crystals, nanocrystals, polycrystalline thin films, handle air sensitive materials and fabricate solar cells. Experimental work will include steady-state and time resolved optoelectronic characterisation of materials and devices. The role will target understanding radiative and non-radiative processes in lead-halide perovskites and the successful candidate will support PhD students in the group.
The candidate must have experience in handling, preparing and optimising lead-halide perovskite materials. Essential skills include competence in optoelectronic and electronic device/film characterisation.
