Postdoctoral Position in Colloidal Semiconducting Nanocrystals for Organic-Nanocrystal Hybrid Systems

We are looking for a highly motivated, bright and enthusiastic candidate with a strong background in synthesis, characterisation and device integration of colloidal semiconducting nanocrystal. The successful candidate will join a highly interdisciplinary team working on organic-nanocrystal hybrid systems for novel photonic and optoelectronic devices.

The ideal candidate should have a PhD in Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science or a related area, and an excellent publication record. Direct experience of the synthesis of semiconducting nanocrystals, solution processing of nanocrystals, core-shell nanocrystals, high PLQE nanocrystals and the ligand exchange and surface passivation of nanocrystals as well as a strong track record of high-quality research and publication is required. Experience with organic semiconductors, nanocrystal-organic hybrids, PbS or PbSe nanocrystals, as well as electro-optical measurements of thin films would be a plus.

The position is available immediately.
