Description

Research Assistant/Associate in energy transport (Fixed Term)

The Optoelectronics Group of the Department of Physics, University of Cambridge, invites applications for a post-doctoral Research Associate to study long-range energy transport in self-assembled organic semiconductors. The role holder is expected to characterise exciton diffusion in these new materials and to develop sensitised photodetectors where energy transfer occurs into inorganic devices. The post is part an EPSRC Programme Grant on harnessing vibration-induced enhancement of transport in functional materials with soft structural dynamics. It involves a collaboration between the Departments of Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science and Electrical Engineering at the University of Cambridge and the Department of Chemistry at the University of Oxford.

The post is based in the group of Prof. Neil Greenham, at the Cavendish Laboratory, but will involve active, interdisciplinary research collaborations with the other researchers working on related aspects of the wider research programme.

Appointment to this Research Associate position is dependent on having a PhD (or equivalent experience), including those who have submitted but not yet received their PhD (in which case appointment will initially be made at Research Assistant and amended to Research Associate when the PhD is awarded). The Research Associate (grade 7) salary falls within the range £31406 - £40927.

Candidates should hold (or be about to complete) a PhD in physics, chemistry, materials science, or a related area. The successful candidate will have research experience in the physical characterisation of organic semiconductors, or related functional materials.

The position is available from September 2022.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 30 months in the first instance.

We particularly welcome applications from women and /or candidates from a BME background for this vacancy as they are currently under-represented at this level in our institution.
