Offer Description

CIC energiGUNE is seeking for a postdoctoral researcher to design new lithium ion battery for high capacity and high voltage applications by developing and validating the gellified cell concept. The research is within the framework of the NEXTCELL project (https://nextcell.eu/ ) and involves excellent scientists at the technological and scientific leading edge, who will address new challenges in the emerging field of solid state batteries. Specifically, the effect of different cell design factors on the electrochemical performance will be assessed by the selected applicant.

Area: Electrochemical energy storage (EES)

Research group: Cell prototyping

TECHNIQUES TO BE USED:

The researcher will work in a interdisciplinary environment employing innovative approaches located in the field of material science. The main tasks of the project are:

- Fundamental understanding of the effect of the assembly parameters (electrode cutting, packaging, contact terminals and sealing conditions) in monolayer and multilayer pouch cells.
- Analysis of the electrode/separator interface quality and their influence after cycling.
- Determination of the effect of different cell design/processing factors including membrane thickness, liquid electrolyte fraction, calendering and alignment on the electrochemical performance.

TO APPLY:

All applicants are invited to submit their application a detailed curriculum vitae along with a motivation letter at this website: https://cicenergigune.com/en/employment-opportunities/101908407

The selection process ends once the candidate is selected.
