Research Engineer / Postdoctoral Research Fellow - 00C8I 



Description

 

We are looking for a highly talented and motivated candidate to work on developing safe high energy density batteries by ultrathin composite membranes. The project will aim at reaching ultrathin, durable and selectively ion-conducting membranes to enhance the energy density and power performance of lithium- and sodium-based batteries, while maintaining easy processability. It will involve the use of operando XRD studies, operando solid-state NMR, as well as developing 3D printing techniques and interfacial engineering using Atomic Layer Deposition. Based on the background of the candidate he may also be given the opportunity to participate in computational materials design aspects of the overall project. The position will be open from 1 April for 2 years until 31 March 2022. An applying Research Engineer may be upgraded to Research Fellow once he completes his PhD.
