Opening 1: Postdoctoral Fellow in Electrical PV Test Equipment Design and Testing

The Photovoltaic Reliability Laboratory (PRL) at Arizona State University has an opening for an outstanding Postdoctoral Fellow in the field of electrical engineering and advanced power electronics, specifically for the design and implementation of a PV test equipment. The project includes the co-development of a non-contact simultaneous string/module I-V tracer for the photovoltaic industry. The postdoctoral associate will have a leadership role in this project and as such will be responsible for communication with partner institutes, meeting project milestones as expected, writing quarterly reports and presenting updates as appropriate.  Technology development, commercialization, and intellectual property creation is a key element of this role. Candidate must be able to conduct self-directed research, mentor graduate students, and work collaboratively with other team members in related fields.

Qualifications: All applicants should have a PhD in electrical engineering, power electronics, physics, or a relevant engineering discipline. Previous experience with string and module level I-V tracers strongly preferred but not required. We are looking for a self-motivated, committed and innovative researcher to join the PRL group that strives to lead the industry in reliability testing.

This position should be filled immediately with a start date no later than December 15, 2017. This is a salaried position with one year appointment with a potential extension for another year. Additionally, there will be opportunity for relevant conference and equipment design collaborative travels as appropriate.

Interested applicants should submit a cover letter and resume to Dr. Govindasamy Tamizhmani,
