Colorado School of Mines and National Renewable Energy Laboratory

The silicon photovoltaics groups at the Colorado School of Mines and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory are seeking a postdoctoral researcher for a collaborate project to study area-selective vapor-phase growth techniques for ultra-high-efficiency interdigitated back contact crystalline silicon solar cells. In addition to film silicon growth and etching, the project will also involve integration of these techniques in a complete device. The successful candidate will lead an independent study of selective photo-assisted etching of amorphous silicon, and extensive optical and electrical characterization of the films.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in physics, materials science, chemical engineering, chemistry or a closely related field. Ideally, the candidates should be familiar with vapor-phase processing of materials, advanced materials characterization techniques, and have prior clean-room experience. The candidate is expected to spend roughly half of his/her time at both institutions. The position is available starting May 1st, 2017, but will remain open until filled. The initial appointment will be for one year, and renewable for up to three years. Interested candidates should send a cover letter, resume, and contact information for three references to Prof. Sumit Agarwal ( and Dr. Paul Stradins (

Please reference in your cover letter when
