Research Scientist/Snr Researcher: Quantum Dot LEDs for Displays - Full Time

Sharp Laboratories of Europe develops world class technology for Sharp’s display and device products. The Emissive Displays group has a mission to create original technology for new-generation displays using organic LEDs (OLEDs) and quantum dot LEDs (QLEDs, QD-LEDs). This group is expanding, creating new opportunities for candidates to have a key R&D role with one of the world’s leading display manufacturers.

There is an opportunity for a researcher to join our R&D team in Oxford which develops new electroluminescent quantum dot LED technologies for use in displays. This team is responsible for creating and optimising fundamental technologies for QLED devices with high efficiency and stability, and collaborates closely with Sharp’s R&D divisions in Japan. Our activity includes design, simulation, fabrication and characterisation of QLEDs and constituent materials; the successful candidate will assume responsibility for at least one of these fields.

We are seeking highly motivated candidates who have:

  • at least a 2:1 Masters degree in Physics, Materials Science or a related subject;
  • experience with OLEDs, QLEDs, similar devices or materials for solution-processed devices;
  • a flexible, delivery-focussed approach to R&D and good teamwork skills;
  • a passion to use their knowledge and ideas to create technology for disruptive products.

We are especially interested to hear from candidates with:

  • experience in fabrication of solution-processed optoelectronic devices;
  • strong understanding in device theory of OLEDs, QLEDs or similar devices;
  • experience in processing of colloidal quantum dots for device applications;
  • strong publication and/or patent record showing evidence of creative and innovative R&D.

We offer excellent training and career development opportunities and a relocation and employment package that includes competitive salary, pension, life assurance and local amenity benefits.
