Postdoctoral Scholar Appointment Opportunity with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource
There is an immediate opening for a postdoctoral position to guide solar cell processing at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) mainly through x-ray spectroscopy characterization and development at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Light Source (SSRL) located at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory located in Menlo Park California.
The position is created by a joint funding opportunity between the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Basic Energy Science and Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. The program aims to use the tools of basic energy science to help solve technical problems defined by the DOE Solar Energy Technology Program as part of the DOE’s SunShot initiative. In particular, the project aim to characterize and guide solar cell processing performed at NREL to develop a transparent emitter layer to replace the cadmium sulfide emitter layer used in copper-indium-gallium-selenide (CIGS) solar cells, using synchrotron radiation spectroscopy and scattering tools. The work associated with this appointment will be conducted at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL), however there will be some travel involved when the work and/or meeting are to take place at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) located in Golden Colorado.
