Postdoctoral position in ultrafast dynamics of micro- and nanostructured materials

A postdoctoral position will be available starting late spring/summer 2019 investigating the excited state dynamics of micro- and nano-structured organic, inorganic, and hybrid inorganic-organic materials including the influence of grain boundaries, grain size, and domain orientations. The ultimate goal of the project is to determine how a material’s microscopic structure influences material functionality for use in macroscopic systems. This includes investigating the correlation between microscopic charge transport and macroscopic charge carrier mobility, how the electronic states of grain boundaries can act as charge trapping sites, and determining the link between morphology and electronic excited state dynamics.
Experience in ultrafast spectroscopy or photoemission spectroscopy/microscopy is strongly preferred. Previous experience working with ultrahigh vacuum surface and materials preparation is desired.
The University of Chicago offers many resources for postdoctoral professional development (https://grad.uchicago.edu/career-development/) as well as several programs specific to the Department of Chemistry. Candidates with backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in physical chemistry are particularly encouraged to apply.
Interested applicants should send a cover letter, their CV, and a list of three references to Prof. Sarah King, [log in to unmask]
