Postdoctoral Researcher in Inorganic Synthesis for Nanocrystal Precursors

 36
Postdoctoral researcher required to carry out scalable syntheses of organometallic compounds that can be used as precursors for nanocrystal and nanowire synthesis. Particularly of interest are oganogermanes (diphenylgermane and its derivatives). Candidate will develop a cost effective synthesis of these precursors with high yields. The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to carry out research on utilization of these precursors in the production of germanium and silicon nanowires with applications in Lithium ion batteries and as scaffolds for cell growth. (See publication listing for further details. Salary scale €37,750-€42,000 depending on experience.
Requirements
PhD in relevant area (Organometallic synthesis an advantage)
Good Publication record

PhD Position in  Synthesis of Core Shell Quaternary Nanocrystals

claudia-1

A PhD position is available in the group fully funded for 4 years to carry out colloidal synthesis of quaternary copper chalcogenides and optimize their optoelectronic properties. The successful candidate will receive training on all aspects of nanocrystal synthesis, use of HRTEM, HRSEM, XRD etc. The project aims to cap copper zinc tin sulphide/selenide (CZTS) and copper indium gallium sulfide (CIGS) nanocrystals with a semiconductor shell to achieve good optical properties. The materials will be investigated in photovoltaic and photoemissive devices.

Requirements

BSc in Chemistry, Materials or Physics

Fluency in English

Strong interest in a research career
