Research Fellow in Organic Optoelectronics - AR1640RSB
Vacancy Description
School of Physics and Astronomy, Salary: £32,004 - £34,956 per annum, Start: As soon as possible, Fixed term for 12 months
Organic semiconductors are promising materials for next generation optoelectronics, combining tuneable optical properties with simple fabrication.  Exciton diffusion is an important process in the operation of organic optoelectronic devices such as solar cells, OLEDs and lasers that you will explore as part of an ambitious project supported by the European Research Council.

The purpose of this position is to use time-resolved spectroscopy to measure exciton diffusion, and relate it to materials structure.  Prior experience of time-resolved spectroscopy is essential.

You will hold, or be near to completing, a PhD in a relevant physical science.

The appointments will be for an initial period until 31 May 2018, with possibility of extension subject to funding.  A related position (AR1871SB) explores materials and processing to increase exciton diffusion.

Applications are particularly welcome from women, who are under-represented in Science posts at the University.  You can find out more about Equality & Diversity at https://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/hr/edi/
