Salary in range £26,000 to £40,000 depending on experience, with ability to participate in the company share option plan Manchester, UK

Reporting to the Optoelectronics Section Head, you will carry out research to develop devices and processes for inorganic thin film PV cell manufacturing, using Nanoco’s proprietary soluble inorganic nanoparticles to fabricate the inorganic active layers. You will work closely with material scientists/chemists and device physicists/engineers and be involved in developing, fabricating and characterising photovoltaic (PV) devices in a laboratory environment. You will have a hands-on approach and be involved in designing experiments, carrying them out in the laboratory, analysing and sharing the results and the setting up and procurement of metrology techniques.


You will have a proven track record of producing and developing high performance CIGS PV solar devices. You will have knowledge and practical experience of fabricating and characterising all of the standard layers for making the device.


You will need to hold at least a degree/Masters in a technical field such as Physics, Electrical Engineering, Materials Science or Physical Chemistry and have expertise in the field of inorganic thin film (or similar) solar cell technology, with experience and expertise in analysing inorganic thin films.


You will have demonstrated an aptitude for innovative, problem solving and an understanding beyond technology area boundaries.


You should have a high level of motivation with good organizational skills, strong IT skills and a flexible attitude. You should be capable of working in a multi-discipline development team in a rapid paced environment with the ability to meet scheduled deadlines. You should also have strong communication skills, be accustomed to participating in team based technical problem solving and have the ability to leverage internal and external capabilities by working closely with people from other technical disciplines. In addition this role will require; leadership, co-ordination, planning, priority management and enthusiasm.

A world leading developer and manufacturer of quantum dots. Nanoco Group PLC and its operating subsidiary Nanoco Technologies Ltd partner major R&D and blue-chip industrial organisations in the development of applications incorporating semiconductor nanoparticles, quantum dots. Nanoco Technologies is unique in the nanomaterials market as a company that manufacture large quantities of quantum dots. Our molecular seeding process for the bespoke manufacture of these nanoparticles on a commercial scale is protected by worldwide patents. Nanoco Technologies is the only manufacturer currently able to supply production quantities of these nanoparticles which do not use a regulated heavy metal. We are the only manufacturer able to respond to orders for large quantities of bespoke quantum dots, and we are leading the way in customising the functionalisation of quantum dots enabling chemical linkage for biological and other specific uses. The bulk manufacture of quantum dots provides our partners with the platform to develop a wide variety of next-generation products, particularly in application areas such as display technology, lighting, solar cells and biological imaging. Nanoco Technologies research and manufacturing headquarters was established in Manchester (UK) in 2001. The company currently operates facilities in the UK and Japan.
