Post-doctoral position for Concentrated Photovoltaic Devices and Systems at the SUNLab The Canada Research Chair in Photonic Nanostructures and Integrated Devices is seeking a postdoctoral candidate for a two-year project related to the development of high-efficiency multi-junction solar cells fabricated from III-V semiconductors and their integration into high-concentration solar systems. The research group under Professor Karin Hinzer is a recent recipient of two major grants entitled SUNRISE: Semiconductors Using Nanostructures for Record Increases in Solar-Cell Efficiency (NSERC-NRC-BDC) and Ultra-High Efficiency Solar Cells for Photovoltaic Concentrator Systems (SDTC), each multi-million-dollar collaborative projects. This research will be conducted within the SUNLab at the Centre for Research in Photonics in the University of Ottawa, Canada. The research project involves the characterization of state-of-the-art multi-junction photovoltaic devices, including the use of a brand-new artificial sun designed to simulate the solar spectrum up to wavelengths of 1900 nm and up to concentrations of 2000 suns. This research project also involves the integration of these solar cells into multi-kilowatt demonstrator units to be housed both at the University of Ottawa and off-site. The candidate should possess strong experimental skills and fundamental knowledge of semiconductors and photovoltaics, with a PhD in electrical engineering, physics, or related fields. Experience in semiconductor characterization, solar cells, and concentrating solar systems is an asset. The candidate should demonstrate leadership, initiative, and excellent communication skills. The research project involves interaction with partners from other universities, government laboratories, and companies, and may involve travel to these institutions. The successful applicant must therefore be willing to sign non-disclosure agreements, although the ability for publications will be protected and strongly encouraged. The candidate should provide a cover letter, CV, and at least two references that may be contacted regarding your recent work. Please describe your expertise and how it relates to this project. State your preferred start date, which is expected to be in 2010. All qualified applicants are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian citizens and permanent residents will be given priority. Suitable candidates will be contacted for follow-up.
