Postdoctoral Researcher in Inorganic Synthesis for Nanocrystal Precursors
PhD Position in Synthesis of Core Shell Quaternary Nanocrystals
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.
BSc in Chemistry, Materials or Physics
