The school of Engineering and Materials Science at Queen Mary University of London has a vacancy for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant

in the structural and electrical characterisation of next-generation graphene and in the growth of organic LEDs on graphene. The project will

explore the potential of our graphene as an ITO (Indium Tin Oxide) replacement in devices, in collaboration with the UK company Paragraf.

 

The successful candidate will contribute towards the development of the research programme under the guidance of the Principal Investigators and be involved in the structural and electrical characterisation of our next-generation graphene and in the growth of organic LEDs on graphene, using electron microscopy to characterise the structure of the interface between graphene and various substrates, including sapphire and silicon.

Benefits

The post is a full-time, fixed term appointment for 12 months and is available in July 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter. Starting salary will be £33,615 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance. Benefits include 30 days annual leave, pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.
