A Temporary Scientist III position is available in NREL’s Chemistry and Nanoscience Center to explore organic-inorganic metal halide perovskite materials in next-generation optoelectronics applications. This position will focus on understanding the processes that enable durability under physical, electrical, and environmental stresses; and how the manufacturing processes impact the material properties relevant to durability. The candidate will support a larger group effort exploring both fundamental science as well as applied research on organic-inorganic metal halide pervoskite systems. The collaborative environment requires a candidate who has the ability to interface with scientists of different disciplines and to learn topics outside their area of expertise. In general, candidates should have a demonstrated track record of success in addressing both fundamental and applied science questions and devising solutions to challenging problems. The candidate will be required to work closely with the Environment, Health, & Safety team to follow safe work procedures, as well as to handle waste properly and keep a clean, well-organized work environment . Required Education, Experience, and SkillsRelevant PhD . Or, relevant Master’s Degree and 3 or more years of experience . Or, relevant Bachelor’s Degree and 5 or more years of experience . Demonstrates complete understanding and wide application of scientific technical procedures, principles, theories and concepts in the field. General knowledge of other related disciplines. Demonstrates leadership in one or more areas of team, task or project lead responsibilities. Demonstrated experience in management of projects. Very good technical writing, interpersonal and communication skills. . Preferred Qualifications The ideal candidate is an expert in understanding and controlling organic-inorganic metal halide perovskite crystal growth, has collaborations within the international perovskite community, and demonstrates interest/experience in perovskite processing deposition science related to durability. Ph.D. in chemical engineering, materials science & engineering, chemistry, physics, or related field. Record of publications/presentations in areas relevant to NREL projects.
