Postdoc Position in Modelling and Characterising Highly Structured Nanoparticles Array Capacitors

Imperial College London has an opening postdoc position. Applications should be sent before December 02, 2018.

The Department of Materials wishes to appoint a Research Associate to work on a project to model and characterise the permittivity of structured arrays of metal nanoparticles. This post is based across the Nanomaterials and Functional Materials groups at Imperial College London, working with Professor Jason Riley and involves collaboration with the University of Glasgow.

The Research Associate will measure and optimise materials with giant electrical permittivity, the systems will be based on strings of metallic/insulator core/shell nanoparticles prepared in Glasgow. You will have expertise in the characterisation of nanoparticle arrays and the modelling and measurement of materials with high permittivity. You will be expected to work in a multidisciplinary environment and be active in multiple projects within our labs and through collaborations. You will be offered extensive opportunities for collaborative work, both within and external to Imperial College.

You will be a conscientious, innovative experimental scientist who has successfully completed a PhD (or equivalent) in chemistry, physics, materials science or similar. Experience in electron microscopy and/or impedance measurements are essential.

Candidates/post-holders will be expected to demonstrate the following:-

A PhD (or equivalent) involving thin film growth and electrical characterisation of dielectric materials. Must have experience in the use of Finite Element Methods to predict electrical behaviour of nanostructured systems. Must have considerable experience in the use of photolithography techniques Must have considerable experience in SEM and TEM characterisation. Must have experience in electrical measurements of thin film devices Must have a proven publication record in reputable international journals Knowledge and proven ability to implement safe working practices in laboratories Ability to work well with other researchers in an academic context Ability to interact successfully with others to learn and teach new skills Ability to present themselves at conferences and seminars with authority and coherence Ability to write technical articles in good English, suitable for publication

You can find details of salary, terms & conditions, including contract type/duration, benefits, etc.]

Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range 33,380- 35,061 per annum.
