Postdoctoral Researcher in the area of photo-alignment of the liquid crystals and nano-crystal composites films

The State Key Laboratory on Advanced Displays and Optoelectronics Technologies (SKL) at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) seeks applications for a Postdoctoral Researcher in the area of photo-alignment of the liquid crystals and nano-crystal composites Films. The SKL carries out research in many areas of display and photonics. The Oxide thin film transistors (TFT) array technology; third generation organic LED (OLED) devices; liquid crystal display (LCD) devices; video signal processing; IC design; and frontier technologies are key research direction at SKL. The major task for the SKL is to develop energy-saving green displays. This postdoctoral researcher will work with a multidisciplinary team of experimental and theoretical material scientists in the area of liquid crystal, photoalignment, nano-materials and film passivation. He/ She will be involved in developing novel devices and test methods for testing new advanced materials for energy-efficient displays and photonic applications. The successful candidate will be responsible for conducting research, writing scientific publications, and technical reports. The successful candidate is expected to have the basic understanding of the liquid crystals, the photo-alignment materials, and process for the liquid crystals. The candidate is also expected to have the basic understanding of the photo-luminescence and nanocrystals.
The candidate should already have gained Ph.D. at the time of the appointment and are expected to have a proven record of research accomplishments.

Salary: Highly competitive

Duration: 12 months (Extendable)
