Deadline: 29 Feb 2024

  • Vacancies
  • Postdoctoral position in multi-material additive manufacturing of functional materials

  • Key takeaways

    We develop and investigate the fundamental science and engineering of energy materials via additive manufacturing with the aim to tailor and control correlated functions related to thermodynamics, kinetics, and transport, including providing surfaces for thermochemical or electrochemical reactions, conducting electrons and heat, and distributing fluids.

    In this project, we aim to manufacture and functionalize 3D-printed structures to create innovative energy materials for heat transfer and or/electrochemical reactions. The materials include multiple metals and ceramic-based composites.

    Your role will be to advance current additive manufacturing techniques and conduct innovative research in multi-material additive manufacturing, develop and optimize processes for creating functional materials, explore applications in electrochemical and heat transfer domains, collaborate with a multidisciplinary team to achieve research goals, and publish research findings in reputable journals and present at conferences
