Applications are invited for the post of Postdoctoral Research Associate (PDRA) at the university of Liverpool, as part of the 5-year E.R.C. project SPUD: Single-Photon Unimolecular Devices, funded by UKRI under the Frontier Research Guarantee scheme. The project aims at developing single-molecule optoelectronic devices, leveraging the opportunities given by synthetic chemistry into the wider field of quantum electronics and photonics. Our final aim is to synthesise novel molecular emitters and integrate them in nanoscale electrical devices, to exploit their two-level nature towards efficient single-photon emission. You will be based in Dr Andrea Vezzoli’s research group https://pcwww.liv.ac.uk/~skeja.
You should have – or are about to receive – a PhD in chemistry or in a suitable area of material science, with significant experience in organic synthesis. We are especially interested in candidates with expertise in the synthesis and functionalisation of fluorophores, chromophores and other light-emitting compounds, and/or in the synthesis of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Experience in physical methods for the evaluation of their properties (either in the bulk or at the single-entity scale) is desirable, but training can be given in Liverpool when needs arise.
Please direct any enquiry about the project or the position to email@example.com.
This post is available from 8 January 2024 until 7 January 2027 (with extension available for further 2 years).
Applicants still awaiting their PhD to be awarded should be aware that, if successful, they will be appointed at grade 6, spine point 30. Upon confirmation of the award of their PhD, they will be moved onto grade 7, spine point 31 from the date of their award.
