Postdoctoral Researcher – Perovskite Nanocrystal Materials and Devices

Job Req #R2289

Job Summary

A postdoctoral position is available in NREL's Chemistry and Nanoscience Center to develop perovskite nanocrystal solar cells and related devices. Primary duties involve the development of state of the art low dimensionality perovskite materials and solar cells. The work will involve using colloidal synthesis growth capabilities to understand and improve perovskite materials and devices; studies of the perovskite materials and interfaces charge selective transport materials; extensive material and device processing and characterization; design of devices and analysis of their performance; and the understanding of the degradation mechanisms. The work will lead to significant additions to the knowledge base of materials and device science and to the dissemination of that work through publication in journals.
