The Solar Durability and Lifetime Extension (SDLE) Center at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) is a world-class research center dedicated to lifetime and degradation science. Established in 2011 by Professor Roger French, the SDLE Center focuses on the durability and degradation of solar photovoltaic (PV) materials, and other environmentally exposed, long lived technologies.
A Post-Doctoral Research Associate/Senior Research Associate position for a statistician is available in the SDLE Research Center, Case School of Engineering under the direction of Prof. Roger H. French. The research focuses on using a data analytics approach to understanding and predicting photovoltaic module material degradation, opening up the risk-reducing or riskaverse market of PV module lifetimes and accelerating adoption of new technology adoption.
According to Timothy Peshek, formerly with NREL (now at CWRU) and lead author of the JVSTA paper, the researchers started out in 2009 trying to show that adding ZrO
