Competitive compensation package
Reporting to the Optoelectronics Group Leader, you will carry out research to develop devices and processes for inorganic thin film PV cell manufacturing, using Nanoco’s proprietary soluble inorganic nanoparticles to fabricate the inorganic active layers. You will work closely with material scientists/chemists and device physicists/engineers and be involved in developing, fabricating and characterising photovoltaic (PV) devices in a laboratory environment. You will have a hands-on approach and be involved in designing experiments, carrying them out in the laboratory, analysing and sharing the results and the setting up and procurement of metrology techniques.
Experience of working in a clean-room environment, and knowledge and application of "design of experiments" statistical methods would be an asset.
You will need to hold at least a degree/Masters in a technical field such as Physics, Electrical Engineering, Materials Science or Physical Chemistry and have at least three years expertise in the field of inorganic thin film (or similar) solar cell technology, with experience and expertise in analysing inorganic thin films.
You will have demonstrated an aptitude for innovative, problem solving and an understanding beyond technology area boundaries.
You should have a high level of motivation with good organizational skills, strong IT skills and a flexible attitude. You should be capable of working in a multi-discipline development team in a rapid paced environment with the ability to meet scheduled deadlines.
