Salary:   £44,263 to £48,350 per annum
Full Time Fixed Term
Closing Date:  Wednesday 11 October 2023
Interview Date:   To be confirmed
Reference:  2441523FP

We are currently recruiting a Senior Research Fellow to undertake research in the field of 2D Metal Dichalcogenides. The project will offer a stimulating interdisciplinary environment and access to unique samples with which to explore new areas of nanoscience. The successful candidates 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;

The successful candidate will be responsible for measuring and understanding the electronic properties of the electrodeposited films and devices and advising on how to optimise their properties. They will have a thorough grounding in the physics and measurement of semiconductors. Knowledge of cleanroom processing techniques is advantageous. They will have good experimental skills and experience of characterising electronic devices. They will be able to use their knowledge to analyse and interpret experimental results and innovate improved or new measurement techniques. 

This post is suitable for a candidate with a PhD or equivalent professional qualifications and experience in Physics, Electronics, or Materials Science and is available to start immediately. The post is initially a fixed term appointment until 30/06/2024.
