Graduate and Post-doctoral Research Positions

Applications are now being accepted for several openings in the areas of ADVANCED ENERGY MATERIALS

Our group has secured funding and is looking for two graduate students (preferably at the PhD level) and one PDF to work on the following projects starting asap but not later than September 2015:

1 - The development of solution synthesis and sintering methods for composition- and phase-controlled kesterite alloy (Cu2ZnSn(S1-xSex)4) nanocrystal production.

2 - The fabrication and optimization of kesterite thin-film cells via structural, optoelectronic, interfacial, and PV performance characterization.

Candidates with materials science & engineering or other related backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Relevant research experience and familiarization especially in terms of solution synthesis of nanomaterials and third generation photovoltaic cell assembly, testing and characterization would be an asset.

Interested applicants are advised to consult relevant papers published by my group to learn more about what the above projects may involve. More information may be obtained by contacting Professor Demopoulos.
