Position: Research Fellow in Nanofabrication & Bioinspired Nanostructures for Smart Window Applications
Institution: University College London
Department: Electronic & Electrical Engineering
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The Research Fellow in IntelGlazing will be responsible for the development of anti-reflective and self-cleaning coatings on windows. Specifically, they will develop large-scale processes for the fabrication of biomimetic nanostructures on glass that will enhance visible transmission and induce superhydrophobic properties. The postholder will also be responsible for designing and fabricating the nanoparticulate film
Requirements: Applicants should have a PhD (or about to submit) in a relevant area of nanotechnology fabrication as well as a first degree in an engineering, physical, chemical or material sciences subject. Proven capability in the fabrication of nanostructures by using cleanroom fabrication processes and specifically reactive ion etching is essential as is the ability to analyse and write up data in the form of journal papers and reports
   
Text: Research Fellow in Nanofabrication & Bioinspired Nanostructures for Smart Window Applications, - Ref:1779397 Click here to go back to search results Apply Now UCL Department / Division Electronic & Electrical Engineering Location of position London Grade 7 Hours Full Time Salary (inclusive of London allowance) ?35,328 - ?42,701 per annum Duties and Responsibilities We wish to recruit a Research Fellow from January 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter, to join the photonic innovations lab at UCL to work on the ERC starting grant, Intel Glazing. The latest forecast by the International Energy Agency predicts that the CO2 emissions from the built environment will reach 15.2 Gt in 2050, double their 2007 levels. Buildings consume 40% of the primary energy in developed countries with heating and cooling alone accounting for 63% of the energy spent indoors. The objective of Intel Glazing is to develop intelligent window insulation technologies using sustainable raw materials. The developed technologies will adjust the amount of radiation escaping or entering a window depending upon the ambient environmental conditions and will be capable of delivering unprecedented reductions to the energy needed for regulating the temperature in commercial and residential buildings. The Research Fellow in IntelGlazing will be responsible for the development of anti-reflective and self-cleaning coatings on windows. Specifically, they will develop large-scale processes for the fabrication of biomimetic nanostructures on glass that will enhance visible transmission and induce superhydrophobic properties. The postholder will also be responsible for designing and fabricating the nanoparticulate film. The post is available for 2 years in the first instance or until March 2020, depending on the starting date of the successful candidate, further funding to support the post may be available. Key Requirements Applicants should have a PhD (or about to submit) in a relevant area of nanotechnology fabrication as well as a first degree in an engineering, physical, chemical or material sciences subject. Proven capability in the fabrication of nanostructures by using cleanroom fabrication processes and specifically reactive ion etching is essential as is the ability to analyse and write up data in the form of journal papers and reports. Appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be made at Research Assistant Grade 6B (Salary ?30,922 - ?32,607 per annum) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis (including corrections).
