One postdoctoral position is available in the Advanced Energy Materials group (Advanced-Energy-Materials/) at the Tyndall National Institute under the supervision of Dr. Kafil M. Razeeb. This is a funded position for 1 year.
The aim of this project is to fabricate thin film thermoelectric materials by electroplating or other fab-compatible techniques. The research will include the development of novel nanostructured thin film based on chalcogenides, investigating the electronic, thermal and thermoelectric properties of the thin films. The goal is to increase the efficiency of the material by tuning its elemental composition and microstructure.
This is a highly collaborative project between the groups at Tyndall National Institute which is funded by European Commission under the Horizon 2020 ICT programme.
The successful applicant will work as part of a multidisciplinary research team, which has a focus in the development of thermoelectric materials and Micro-thermoelectric generator on Si platform.
The research/duties of this particular position will involve elements of the following:
