This postdoc position will be aimed at using halide perovskite nanostructures for advanced optoelectronics devices including solar cells, LEDs and lasers. It will involve both theoretical and experimental work, including leading the upgrade of our unique integrating sphere microscopy setup to include Fourier microscopy. Optimal nanostructures for specific applications will be designed, fabricated and characterized chemically, crystallographically, optically and electrically.Research
The Nanoscale Solar Cells group synthesizes advanced metal and semiconducting nanostructures, characterizes their material properties and integrates them into novel device structures with the aim of improving our fundamental understanding of light absorption, charge separation, recombination and transport at the nanometer scale.
Candidates must have a PhD degree in physics, chemistry, materials science or engineering and strong mathematical training. The ideal candidate would have research experience in both halide perovskites and nanophotonics, including advanced analytical calculations, numerical modeling, nanofabrication, materials characterization and optical characterization. NWO-I prefers candidates who have qualifying experience (e.g. as PhD student or postdoctoral researcher) in a scientific research institute abroad.
You will be employed by NWO-I for a fixed period of two years. Your salary will be up to a maximum of 4,237 euro gross per month, depending on your level of experience. The salary is supplemented with a holiday allowance of 8 percent and an end-of-year bonus of 8.33 percent. The conditions of employment of NWO-I are laid down in the Collective Labour Agreement for Research Centres (Cao-Onderzoekinstellingen), more exclusive information is available at this website under Personeelsinformatie (in Dutch) or under Personnel (in English). General information about working at NWO-I can be found in the English part of this website under Personnel. The 'Job interview code' applies to this position.
