The post requires candidates with a doctoral degree in materials engineering, physics or related areas, with experience in materials deposition by cold plasmas and characterization of thin films. The project is divided in three stages: 1) study of the plasma deposition process and characterization of thin films (TiOxNy and Cu2O) and their applications in photoelectrochemical cell electrodes to be used in photo-electrolysis of water, 2) assembling and sealing of electrodes to accomplish the construction of a photoelectrochemical cells, 3) characterization of the efficiency of conversion of solar energy to generate hydrogen by the produced cells. Additionally, the candidate must participate of in other actvities of the NanotecPlasma laboratory, collaborate in projects development and manuscripts. The supervision of undergraduate and graduate students also represents one of these activities. The post is open to Brazilians and foreigners.
