Recruiting postdoctoral fellow to study the synthesis and fabrication of perovskite materials and their applications as photodetectors and solar cells. Located at the High-Performance Materials Institute at Florida State University we focus on structural health monitoring (SHM) of composite materials and multi-functional material systems. Through the utilization of perovskite material we are creating carbon based sensing, energy storage and harvesting systems for industrial applications. Applicant expected to be very knowledgeable in semi-conductors (preferably perovskite solar cells), solar cell fabrication and testing, and material characterization techniques. Furthermore, leadership skills and grant writing is desired.

Desired Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:

  • Knowledge of current trends in perovskite solar cells, sensing, and advanced composite fields
  • Skill in developing energy storage devices
  • Knowledge and skills in written and verbal communication
  • Must be clearly fluent in both spoken and written English
  • Advanced characterization techniques for semiconductor materials such as: AFM, KPFM, C-V and C-f measurement, EQE, IV, time resolved PL, UV-VIS, SEM and XRD, Signal processing/data acquisition, microfabrication
  • Skill in developing engagement and knowledge-transfer activities
  • Ability to identify, develop, and write grant proposals
  • Ability to work on multiple, complex projects, in a leadership capacity
  • Ability to prioritize work tasks
  • Ability to mentor students

Response Method:

Please send an updated resume (including publications, patents, and conference proceedings), along with a cover page describing your work experience, interests, and career goals.
