Positions currently available:

 

  • Graduate Researcher: We are seeking a graduate student to work collaboratively between the Colorado School of Mines and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. The student will take over a current project developing a method to control fracture within germanium for substrate reuse purposes and low-cost III-V photovoltaic applications. Prior experience with fracture mechanics and electroplating is desired. Students available at the beginning of the spring semester or early summer of 2017 are encouraged to apply.
    • Interested candidates should send a CV and cover letter describing research interests and qualifications relevant to this posting to Dr. Packard in pdf form by email with the subject line: "CSM/NREL high-efficiency, low cost III-V graduate student opportunityā€¯.

     

  • Post-Doctoral: We are seeking a post-doctoral research associate to work collaboratively between the Colorado School of Mines and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory on a high visibility project that concerns the characterization of defects and interfaces in high-efficiency, low-cost III-V photovoltaic materials. Prior experience in focused ion beam sample preparation and a strong crystallography background is required. Experience in Transmission Electron and Scanning Electron microscopies is desired. Training in Atom Probe Tomography will be conducted. The project will begin late spring/early summer 2016.
