Postdoctoral Fellow / Research Fellow - Semiconductor Fabrication

Australian National University has an opening postdoc position in materials engineering. This position is available for 3 years in the first instance. Candiates are welcome before October 16, 2018.

We are seeking a candidate to join the research team to embark on a project entitled “Improving Efficiency, Durability and Cost-effectiveness of III-V Semiconductors for Direct Water Electrolysis” funded by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA). The activities of project involve epitaxial growth of multi-junction III-V semiconductor materials, epitaxial lift-off, surface passivation and catalyst functionalisation, and prototyping water splitting system.

The Postdoctoral Fellow / Research Fellow will conduct research on fabrication of thin-film III-V semiconductor materials via epitaxial lift-off techniques for application in solar fuels generation. This position will also support research on epitaxial growth of III-V semiconductors. The Postdoctoral Fellow / Research Fellow will collaborate with other researchers and students in the Electronic Materials Engineering Centre as well other research groups within ANU and external collaborators.

Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates to design, fabricate thin-film multi-junction III-V semiconductor photoelectrodes via epitaxial lift-off techniques for photoelectrochemical solar energy harvesting applications.

We are seeking a candidate who has strong interest and experience in semiconductor device fabrication and photoelectrolysis, in particular with epitaxial lift-off skills. If you have relevant qualifications, with publications in support of your success, we would encourage your application.

The project spans 3 years, running from Jan 2019 to Dec 2021. Positions are for 2 years fixed term, with 1 year extension upon meeting project mid-year milestones.

The ANU College of Science (CoS) comprises: the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics, the Research School of Biology, the Research School of Chemistry, the Research School of Earth Science, the Fenner School of Environment and Society, the Mathematical Sciences Institute, the Research School of Physics and Engineering, and the Centre for the Public Awareness of Science. Staff and students within the ANU College of Science conduct research and delivers a research-led education program that encompasses the entire breadth of the sciences, supported by extensive international networks and by world-class facilities. The College has a strong tradition of research excellence that has fostered distinguished Nobel Laureates and Kyoto Prize winners and that trains scientific leaders in disciplines in which the ANU is consistently ranked in the top twenty in the world.
