Senior Perovskite Scientist

Job title: Senior Perovskite Scientist

Company: CK Group

Job description: CK Group are recruiting for a Senior Perovskite Scientist on behalf of an innovative developer of microgroove solar technology products, to be based at their site in Seaham on a permanent basis.

About the company:

Our client has proven its unique micro-groove solar technology in >200cm2 modules, which contain over 80,000 individual solar cells, in its pilot facility in the North East of England. They are now working with world leading research partners to further improve and scale-up this new innovative technology to market.

About the role:

The main purpose of this role is the development of perovskite ink formulations tailored to the organisation’s microgroove architecture. The role will involve the use of adequate materials and device characterisation with the aim of accelerating the development rate.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Development of perovskite ink formulations, characterisation of materials and devices:
  • Optimising the perovskite inkformulations for the substrates for stable and efficient materials
  • Working alongside the Scale-up Scientist and the Coating Engineer to scale-up the perovskite ink formulations to the pilot line
  • Driving the development process through detailedcharacterisation of the perovskite layer, devices and interfaces, in working alongside the Perovskite Physicist and the wider team
  • Identifying, planning and leading work with external partners to achieve the company’s goals
  • Identifying in advance, planning and implementing resources required for efficient work progress
  • Planning, managing and reporting on development trials in a timely manner
  • Oversight of large data sets and identification of trends and conclusions
  • Keeping up to date with relevant research literature and technical breakthroughs in the field
  • Developing and improving internal / external testing regimes
  • Preparing and implementing relevant H&S documentation (e.g. COSHH assessments and Risk Assessments)
  • Creating and implementing process documentation such as SOPs and testing protocols
  • Identifying and capturing IP

About you:

To be considered for the position, you should ideally have the following skills and experience:

  • Qualified to PhDor EngD, or possess equivalent experience in a field focussing on perovskite materials.
  • Laboratory experience of perovskite solar cell development with the focus on improving perovskite formulations for efficiency and stability.
  • Competence inmaterial characterization using methods such as XRD, UV-Vis-NIR, FTIR, PL, NMR, XPS, SEM, AFM etc.
  • Deep subject matter knowledge on the strategies towards stable and efficient perovskite formulations
  • The ability to plan development trials, critically analyse and interpret data, identify bottlenecks, and recommend and implement strategies to address them.

The following skills would be beneficial but not essential:

  • Experience of developing inks for scalable printing techniques, such as slot die coating.
  • Experience of developing inks for flexible substrates, such as PET.
  • Good understanding of industrial requirements towards optoelectronics manufacturing processes, including supply chain and mass production.
  • Knowledge,skills and experience in analysing large datasets using automated analytic tools (e.g. Excel, Minitab, Python, Matlab, Labview).
