The Center for Nanotechnology Research and Education (CNRE) at The University of the District of Columbia is located in Washington DC and is funded by National Science Foundation-CREST. The CNRE center provides nanotechnology research and education and conducts research activities related to advanced materials and devices for high performance computing, additive manufacturing, multiscale and multiphysics modelling of thermal management system and Earth-abundant Photovoltaics. The CNRE center has collaborative research with world-class neighboring organization-the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

Position Summary

CNRE Center is seeking two Master or PhD/student research assistants interested in photovoltaics. The project is targeted to develop eco-friendly and high-performance perovskite and antimony selenide solar cells for commercialization. The perovskite solar cell has demonstrated efficiency>25% and is a very promising photovoltaic technology for commercialization. The project will focus on the fabrication and optimization of novel architecture solar cells and characterization of thin-films and solar cells via the use of a range of advanced techniques to provide the fundamental understanding of the mechanism of solar cell efficiency and stability. The candidates are expected to start at Spring 2022 semester.

Eligibility Criteria
Green Card or US citizenship (Minority students preferred)
Bachelor Degree or above
GPA: 3.0 on a 4.0 GPA scale (3.4 or the above preferred).
Self-motivated, committed and curious

We offer
Tuition and stipend
Travel for conferences will be financially supported.
Great location
The research group collaborates with National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and NASA.

Application deadline: open until filled, expect to start at Spring 2022 semester
