No. of Posts: 1
Project Title: Design and Synthesis of Deep-BIue Emitting Triplet Hanesting TADF/HLCT Chromophores for OLED
Principal Investigator: Dr. K. R. .lustin Thomas
Salary/: Rs. 50.000- per month
The prospective candidate is expected to have a strong background in organic synthesis, nitrogen and sulfur based heterocyclic compounds synthesis, photophysical, electrochemical and thermal characterization of organic materials. Preference will be given to candidates having hands on experience in multi-step synthesis of functional organic materials for application in electronic devices such as solar cells and OLEDs, density functional theoretical evaluation of organic materials, handling of air/moisture sensitive metal-catalyzed reactions under inert atmosphere and routine characterization of organic materials by NMR, IR and UVVis spectral measurements. Candidate should be passionate to innovate and initiate research directions leading to the development of new andhigh impact materials and devices. Candidate should be willing to collaborate within the group and with national and foreign institutions. Apart from research, the candidate may be entrusted with other academic responsibilities as deemed fit by the depatiment.
The prospective candidate should have Ph.D. degree in organic chemistry or material science or related field. Significant experience and interest in hands-on device fabrication and materials processing is desirable. In addition, computational modelling skills are desired but not required. He/she should have a minimum of three publications with impact factor of 2.0 or more. Candidates who have recently submitted their doctoral thesis are eligible to apply however; they have to furnish the proof of award of Ph.D at the time of interview.
