Postdoc position available at the University of Ulster in Green Nanomaterials for Photovoltaics

A Postdoc position for 2.5 years is available on "Green Nanomaterials for Photovoltaics".

You can find details of the application procedure and job specifications at http://www.plasmamate.org/job-phd-opportunities/jobs-3/

The application deadline is 4th August 2015.

The Postdoctoral Researcher is expected to work within a project funded by the EPSRC. The aim of the project is to synthesize alloyed and nitrides quantum dots to be integrated in solar cell devices. The synthesis method will be based on atmospheric pressure plasmas.

Postdoc position available at University of Ulster in Carbon Nanotubes Manufacturing & Applications

 A Postdoc position for 2.5 years is available on "Carbon Nanotubes Manufacturing & Applications".

You can find details of the application procedure and job specifications at http://www.plasmamate.org/job-phd-opportunities/jobs-2/

The application deadline is 4th August 2015.

The Postdoctoral Researcher is expected to work within a project funded by the EPSRC. The work will include both scientific-driven work as well as some involvement with projects in cooperation with industrial partners. The scientific part is focused on developing non-conventional catalyst materials for carbon nanotubes growth and therefore the development of hybrid plasma-thermal systems will be required; focus on synthesis or  material/properties characterization can be tailored based on the candidate expertise and interest.
