Postdoctoral Reseracher - Solution Processed Materials for Photovoltaics
Golden, CO
Postdoctoral Researcher
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is a leader in the U.S. Department of Energy’s effort to secure an energy future that is both environmentally and economically sustainable. With locations in Golden, Boulder and Washington D.C., NREL is the primary laboratory for research, development and deployment of renewable energy technologies in the United States. The NREL mission is to develop renewable energy and energy efficient technologies and practices, advance related science and engineering, and transfer knowledge and innovation to address the nation’s energy and environmental goals.
Interfacial and Surface Science group is seeking a postdoctoral candidate to perform creative scientific research on the development and characterization of solar cells and modules. This will involve both basic characterization studies and the development of applied device physics for large area cells and modules in which solution-processed device components are utilized.
The researcher will contribute to atmospheric process development, characterization, and scale-up of materials for photovoltaic devices. The candidate will use and characterize inks based materials and their evolution to thin film form as a function of process conditions. He/She will use this basic science information to refine and develop new processes strategies for improved device performance (e.g. yield and power conversion efficiency). The work may require both the development of novel experimental techniques as well as the use of existing optical, structural, and electrical characterization tools. Work will also involve device characterization and the development of physical models to accelerate technological developments. Extensive interactions with industrial collaborators will be required, and the applicant must be amenable to working in a large and diverse research team. The candidate will need a demonstrated ability to produce high-quality scientific work with strong scientific writing and presentation skills so as to present at national and international conferences and publish the work in peer-reviewed journals. As such, excellent interpersonal and communication skills are a necessity. The ideal candidate must demonstrate a willingness and enthusiasm for learning new subjects, excellent collaborative skills, creativity, and an interest toward commercialization.
Must be a recent PhD graduate within the last three years.
Ph.D. in materials science, physics, electrical engineering, or other relevant discipline. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in photovoltaic device fabrication and/or characterization.
