The Optoelectronic Materials Group, Inorganic Materials Science Chair of the University of Twente is inviting applications for an outstanding postdoctoral associate in the context of a recently funded ERC StG project.
About the position:
- The successful candidate will work on the development of a novel in-vacuum deposition method for hybrid and all-inorganic halide perovskites.
- Tasks includes: process development, combinatorial growth for material discovery and in-depth characterization of material properties.
- The goal of the project is to demonstrate a new method allowing the controlled growth of hybrid materials and their functionalization, as well as the discovery of new material compositions. Consequently, previous experience with vacuum equipment, plasma physics, sputtering or PLD, and a full breadth of material characterization (XPS, UPS, XRD, optical spectroscopy, PL, electrical characterization) and device fabrication is highly desirable.
- Experience with in-situ experimentation would be an asset.
- The developed hybrid halide perovskite materials are expected to be implemented in solar cells and other optoelectronic devices together with national and international collaborators.
- Candidates must be with a doctoral degree in Physics, Materials Science or Chemistry and previous research experience in halide perovskites.
- Candidate must have the ability to conduct self-directed research, mentor graduate students, and work collaboratively with academic team members in related fields.
- Candidate is expected to communicate project results in conferences and write scientific manuscripts.
- Candidates should be creative and productive, as evidenced by unique scholarly or other technical contributions to research projects.
- Excellent English writing and presentation skills are a must.
