We are looking for a post-doctoral scientist to carry out spectroscopic studies on colloidal nanocrystals. The candidate will investigate optical properties of ternary I-III-VI compounds nanocrystals – cadmium-free, less toxic alternatives to well known cadmium chalcogenide nanocrystals. The project is aimed at revealing the mechanism of light emission in these nanostructures and applying them to photovoltaic devices. As such, the project lies at an intersection of physics, chemistry, and engineering. We will be working toward development of novel, green, energy-efficient devices.
The successful candidate will be involved in steady-state and time-resolved absorption and photoluminescence measurements. While part of the work will be devoted to studies of colloidal ensembles, the main focus will be placed on the spectroscopy of single nanostructures.
The candidate will join a young team of researchers: three post-doctoral level scientists, three PhD students, and one undergrad student, working on various colloidal nanostructures. We are based in the Institute of Physics, Polish Academy of Science, which is located in Warsaw, 20 minutes away from city center. We have collaborations with other Polish institutes in Warsaw, Wrocław, and Toruń, as well as the High Magnetic Field Lab in Toulouse, France.
- PhD degree in physics, chemistry, or a related field
- Experience in steady-state and time-resolved spectroscopy documented by relevant publications
- Willingness to undertake new challenges
- Good communication skills
- Good team-working skills
The starting date is flexible, however, the position should start before June 2021. The duration is 18 months. If you need more information, please reach out and contact me. See Contact page. The official announcement can be found here.
