Postdoctoral Research Associate in Energy Harvesting
Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Energy
Harvesting to work under the supervision of Professor Robert Hoye for a period
of up to 24 months. The project is a UKRI Frontier Grant, funded via the ERC
Starting Grant 2021 scheme. The focus is on developing a new generation of
halide rudorffite and chalcohalide thin films for indoor light harvesting to
sustainably power Internet of Things devices.

The role involves developing synthesis routes for inorganic thin films,
characterising their optoelectronic, structural and chemical properties, and
developing these films into photovoltaic devices.
You should have a PhD in Chemistry, Physics or Materials Science (or be close
to completion), prior to taking up the appointment. Candidates should have
experience of research in the synthesis and characterisation of inorganic thin
films, including solution-based processing methods, ultrafast spectroscopy
techniques, and optoelectronic device fabrication and be able to demonstrate
competence and success in the thesis research area.
The duties will include testing hypotheses, analysing and reviewing scientific
data, and managing your own academic research and administrative activities,
