Joining Us

We are always looking for enthusiastic and talented researchers to join our team. Please find information on doing so below, and get in touch if you are interested in joining us.





Research Assistant/Associate (Fixed Term) in Time-Resolved Optical Spectroscopy

Applications are invited for a Post-Doctoral Research Associate to work on time-resolved spectroscopy of emerging semiconductor materials including perovskites and perovskite-inspired materials for applications including photovoltaics, lighting, lasing and quantum devices. A key focus will be on understanding the local recombination and charge transport properties of these materials employing time-resolved techniques on the microscale, including adapting recently developed techniques in the group utilising 3D luminescence and diffusion approaches. These measured properties will be correlated with related electronic, chemical and materials microscopy characterisation approaches, providing new insight into these semiconductors and guiding elimination of power losses in devices.

We are looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic candidate with a PhD in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science or a related area. A proven track record of scientific publication and presentation at international conferences is essential. Experience in performing time-resolved optical spectroscopy of semiconductor materials is essential including, but not limited to, time-resolved photoluminescence and/or pump-probe techniques including transient absorption. Experience with microscale optical spectroscopy is highly desired. Strong optics experience including building and/or adapting setups is essential. Direct experience working with halide perovskites is highly desired but not essential. The development of independent research projects and research student supervision will also be expected, and existing evidence of the ability to do so would be a plus. The ideal candidate would also interact with a wide international network of collaborators.

Closes September 18th 2020
