Research Fellow in Organic Optoelectronics – AR2083MR
School of Physics and Astronomy
Vacancy Description
School of Physics and Astronomy/ Organic Semiconductor Centre, Salary: £33,797 per annum, Fixed Term: 12 months, Start: As soon as possible
The purpose of this position is to develop new materials for organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). The materials will emit by thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) which is increasingly important for next generation displays and solid-state lighting devices. The research is a collaboration between the School of Physics and Astronomy and the School of Chemistry through the Organic Semiconductor Centre, which is internationally recognised for its research on light-emitting materials. You will be responsible for making and measuring organic light-emitting diodes and performing photophysical measurements to guide the development of improved materials and devices. Prior experience of organic semiconductor device fabrication is essential.

This appointment is for an initial period of one year, with possibility of renewal for a further year.
