Research Fellow: 2D Metal Dichalcogenides

Sustainable Electronic Technologies

Location:  Highfield Campus
Salary:   £30,395 to £37,345
Full Time, Fixed Term (18 months)
Closing Date:  Monday 22 July 2019
Interview Date:   To be confirmed
Reference:  1152319FP

The project will offer a stimulating interdisciplinary environment and access to unique samples with which to explore new areas of nanoscience. You will join an interdisciplinary team as part of an EPSRC funded project " 2D Layered Transition Metal Dichalcogenide Semiconductors via Non-Aqueous Electrodeposition” The project will provide a breakthrough in the method of fabrication of thin film transistors and similar devices by delivering a disruptive combination of feature size, device complexity and materials quality, through advanced electrodeposition of semiconducting materials.

You will be responsible for measuring and understanding the physical properties of the electrodeposited films and devices and advising on how to optimise their properties. To be successful you will have a thorough grounding in the physics of semiconductors and optics along with proven experimental skills and experience of characterising electronic devices.  PhD or equivalent professional qualifications and experience in Physics, Electronics, or Materials Science is required for this role. Knowledge of cleanroom processing techniques is advantageous.  You will have experience of analysing and interpreting experimental results and innovate improved or new measurement techniques.

Applications for Research Fellow positions will be considered from candidates who are working towards or nearing completion of a relevant PhD qualification.  The title of Research Fellow will be applied upon successful completion of the PhD.  Prior to the qualification being awarded the title of Senior Research Assistant will be given.
