Post-doctoral Researcher – Scanning Probe Microscopy of Nanostructures for Solar Cells

PD3-SS-2011 Scanning Probe Microscopy of Nanostructures for Solar Cells

The International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) seeks a highly qualified self-motivated postdoctoral researcher to participate in its research in the Group for Nanostructured Solar Cells.

The candidates must have a PhD degree in physics, material science or other related field, be fluent in English and have experience in semiconductor physics and scanning probe microscopy. Candidates with experience in one or several of the following topics will be given preference: non-contact atomic force microscopy, Kelvin probe force microscopy, scanning tunneling microscopy, ultrahigh vacuum environment, solar cells. The applicants should have a strong enthusiasm for work, excellent communication skills and a track-record for solving materials problems and disseminating results to scientific community.

The Group for Nanostructured Solar Cells, led by Dr. Sascha Sadewasser, develops 3rd generation photovoltaic devices based on chalcopyrite semiconductor quantum dots. The project deals with the characterization of Cu(In,Ga)Se2 nanostructures by scanning probe microscopy techniques.

In addition to the opportunity to access state-of-the-art experimental facilities and work in an interdisciplinary and collaborative environment, INL offers competitive working conditions, including salaries in line with those offered by other international research organizations, and a comprehensive fringe benefits package. The position is for 2 years. Interested applicants should submit their curriculum vitae (with a full list of publications), a cover letter describing their research experience, and contact details of two referees.

Enquires about the position should be directed to reo(at)

INL firmly adheres to a principle of non-discrimination.

DEADLINE: 31-12-2011 (Lisbon time).

STARTING DATE: from 01-02-2012

In view of the large number of applications, we regret to inform that only successful candidates will be contacted.
