Careers

QD Solar is an early-stage, well-funded, fast-moving company commercializing cutting-edge quantum dot (QD) solar cell technology out of Professor Ted Sargent’s lab at the University of Toronto. Our mission is to become a world leading provider of photovoltaic (PV) products. Our new solar technology captures the energy in regions of the sun’s infrared spectrum which silicon cells cannot harvest. Low-cost manufactured infrared solar cells will integrate with conventional silicon solar cells to increase the total power generated by these hybrid solar panels by more than 20%. Our core technology is based on nanometer-sized semiconductor particles which are processed from solution, are compatible with high-throughput, cost-effective roll-to-roll processing technologies. Our colloidally stable quantum dots are inorganic thus inherently more light- and air-stable than polymers.



QD Solar is seeking driven, passionate, self-motivated and enthusiastic R&D team members to join us as we bring our game-changing solar technology to market. Our R&D team is located in the heart of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Candidates must be legally eligible to work in Canada. Interested candidates are encouraged to send a full CV and a list of at least 3 professional references to careers@qdsolarinc.com.
