Postgraduate Opportunities in light emitting diodes (LEDs) 2 posts

TITLE OF POST: PhD studentship in the design, characterization and optimization of electrically pumped all-inorganic nanorod-light emitting diodes (NR-LEDs)

LOCATION: University of Limerick    REPORTS TO: Project leader

Stipend: €18,500 per year for 4 years Tuition and fees: Covered for 4 years

Contacts: ning.liu@ul.ie

QUALIFICATIONS:

Hold either an honours (first or second class (2:1)) Master’s degree in Physics, Engineering or Material Science, or an honours (first or second class (2:1)) bachelor degree in Physics, Material Science, or relevant discipline.

OVERALL PURPOSE OF THE STUDENTSHIP:

This PhD studentship is funded by Science Foundation Ireland. The successful candidate is expected to model, characterize and optimize charge transfer across nanorod based multilayers and conduct NR-LED device characterization. In particular, the candidate is expected to develop methods to experimentally study and theoretically model the exciton recombination process in light emitting diodes. The successful candidate will be integrated into the Nanophotonics & Nanoplasmonics Group (https://ulsites.ul.ie/physics/node/51101) in the Department of Physics at UL, and have opportunities to learn from experienced researchers within the group with expertise in both chemical syntheses and optical characterizations.

Requirements:

Essential

  • Hold either an honours (first or second class (2:1)) Master’s degree in Physics, Engineering or Material Science, or an honours (first or second class (2:1)) bachelor degree in Physics, Material Science, or relevant discipline.
  • Self-motivated with proven organisational skills to prioritise and deliver agreed objectives.
  • Demonstrated strong work ethic and with the ability of working both alone and within a team.
  • Be able to work independently, demonstrate initiative, being versatile and productive.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.

Desirable

  • Good understanding on light emitting processes.
  • Good understanding on solid state physics.
  • Programming, report and paper writing experience.

TITLE OF POST: PhD studentship in colloidal nanorod heterogeneous assembly for electrically pumped all-inorganic light emitting diodes (LEDs)

LOCATION: University of Limerick REPORTS TO: Project leader

Stipend: €18,500 per year for 4 years Tuition and fees: Covered for 4 years

Contacts: ning.liu@ul.ie and/or kevin.m.ryan@ul.ie

QUALIFICATIONS:

Hold either an honours (first or second class (2:1)) Masters degree in Chemistry, Material Science, Physics or an honours (first or second class (2:1)) bachelor degree in Chemistry, Material Science, Physics or relevant discipline.

OVERALL PURPOSE OF THE STUDENTSHIP:

This PhD studentship is funded by Science Foundation Ireland. The successful candidate is expected to develop the fabrication procedures of nanocrystal based LEDs using heterogeneous assembly. In particular, the candidate is expected to develop methods to synthesize inorganic semiconductor quantum dots and nanorods, utilize and optimize the electric field assisted nanocrystal assembly method to form the multi- layered LED structures. The successful candidate will be integrated into two well-funded research groups in the Bernal Institute at UL - Nanotechnology Research Group (http://nanoresearchul.org/) and Nanophotonics

& Nanoplasmonics Group (https://ulsites.ul.ie/physics/node/51101), and have opportunities to learn from experienced researchers within the groups with expertise in both chemical syntheses and optical characterizations.
