Postdoctoral Researcher in Computational Studies of New Perovskite Materials for Solar Cells


Salary:  Starting from £32,548, rising to £38,833
Placed On:  Tuesday 20 February 2018
Closing Date:  Wednesday 21 March 2018
Interview Date:  Wednesday 04 April 2018
Reference:  AP5647

An EPSRC-funded postdoctoral research position is available to carry out computational studies of new hybrid perovskite halides for solar cells within the materials chemistry group of Professor Saiful Islam at the University of Bath.


The research project will apply advanced computational techniques (based on DFT) in the study of defects, surfaces and stability of metal halide perovskites. This work will link up with experimental synthesis, structural and solar cell studies within the groups of Prof Brian Saunders (Manchester) and Dr Saif Haque (Imperial College London), and is part of a new consortium on ‘Towards Stable and Scalable Perovskite Solar Cells’.


Previous experience in computational materials science and a track record of peer-reviewed publications are essential. This post is available from 1st May 2018 or shortly thereafter for up to 36 months.
