These skills include, but are not limited to, the ability to present research plans and findings in a convincing style, both in oral and written modes of communication, the ability to understand research group management and supervision of others, the ability to establish contacts and network with colleagues pursuing a similar research agenda, the ability to organize and teach a class or a course if more inclined towards a teaching career.

Key Roles & Responsibilities

Strategic Responsibilities

We seek to fill a position of Postdoctoral Fellow in an externally -funded research project  as part of VRI (Virtual Research Institute) : for sustainable energy production, storage and utilization . This role is part of theme 1:  Sustainable Power Generation Thrust 1.1: Solar Energy (Photovoltaics). This theme aims to develop technologies toward sustainable power generation directly from photovoltaics. For PV, previously we developed silicon-based solar cells with enhanced internal quantum efficiency and overall cell efficiency by implementing a simple cell structure at low additional cost. This improved technology will be integrated into commercial Si solar cell and module products and tested at KU’s solar PV platform. This challenge can be tackled by developing multifunctional coatings. In this role, researching new nano material coatings such at metal nanoparticles, 2D materials and perovskites.

Operational Responsibilities

The candidate will be responsible for deposition of materials and solar cell fabrication . In addition, the candidate will test the solar cells (under 1 Sun and using EQE). Drafting papers to be submitted high quality journals and conferences

Supervisory Responsibilities

The candidate will help with training and supervising graduate students in their research.
