Job/Research Summary The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) located at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Golden, Colorado is the nation’s primary laboratory for research, development and deployment of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies. NREL's Chemical and Materials Sciences Center has and immediate opening for a full time Postdoctoral Researcher. The assignment is for one year with possible renewal for up to three years. The research will investigate the factors that influence photo-induced electron transfer in systems that comprise conjugated polymers, conjugated molecules, fullerenes, single-walled carbon nanotubes and colloidal quantum dots. These systems will be used to understand what factors control the generation and recombination of separated free charges, and how these might be optimized to improve the performance of novel solar photoconversion concepts.
Job Duties The successful candidate will be expected to prepare new thin films samples, characterize them using absorption and emission spectroscopy, and to investigate the primary charge-generating capabilities using time-resolved microwave conductivity. They will be expected to work in a team environment, contributing a bigger project on understanding the role of excitons and their conversion to charges in a variety of molecular and nanoscale systems and studied using a variety of spectroscopic and microscopy techniques.
Required Education and Experience Must be a recent PhD graduate within the last three years.
Additional Required Knowledge, Skills and Attributes Familiar with computer programming and data analysis; knowledge and use of lasers; experience with electronics; good chemical practices for sample preparation.
Preferred Qualifications PhD in Physical Chemistry or Chemical Phsyics.
