We are always interested in hearing from talented and motivated students and early-career researchers who are interested in working in our labs. Please send enquiries including CV directly to Dr Nielsen. For international students, please follow this link for information regarding QMUL’s international partners for PhD funding.
A Postdoctoral Research Assistant position is available in the group of Dr Christian Nielsen to work on an EPSRC-funded project entitled “Additive-Stabilized Polymer Electronics Manufacturing” in collaboration with Prof Henning Sirringhaus, University of Cambridge.
This particular research position will focus on the synthesis and characterization of novel conjugated organic materials for use in organic electronics, specifically focusing on enhancing the performance and stability of organic electronic devices such as the organic field-effect transistor (OFET) and the organic light-emitting diode (OLED). The successful applicant will work within the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at QMUL (http://www.sbcs.qmul.ac.uk/) under the direct supervision of Dr Christian Nielsen but will also collaborate closely with the project partners in Cambridge.
The ideal candidate for this position should have a PhD in organic chemistry or a closely related field and be able to work effectively, independently and sociably within a team and have an interest/knowledge in materials science. Experience in conjugated small molecule and polymer synthesis and the ability to interact within an interdisciplinary research area are vital. For more details and how to apply, please follow this link. The closing date for applications is 4 July 2018. Interviews will be held shortly thereafter.
PhD opportunities working on organic bioelectronics and organic thermoelectrics research are potentially available for highly motivated students with strong skills in synthetic organic chemistry. We are particularly interested in hearing from Chinese citizens, Mexican citizens and developed Commonwealth country citizens (Australia, The Bahamas, Brunei, Canada, Cyprus, Malta and New Zealand).
