The mission of the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2) is to achieve the highest level of scientific and technological excellence in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. Its research lines focus on the newly-discovered physical and chemical properties that arise from the behaviour of matter at the nanoscale. ICN2 has been awarded with the Severo Ochoa Center of Excellence distinction for two consecutive periods (2014-2018 and 2018-2022). ICN2 comprises 17 Research Groups, 7 Technical Development and Support Units and Facilities, and 2 Research Platforms, covering different areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology.
Job Title: Research Support Technician
Research area or group: Novel Energy-Oriented Materials Group
Description of Group/Project:
Novel Energy-Oriented Materials Group works in materials science and electrochemistry for energy-related applications. It leads several research projects and industrial contracts in energy storage and conversion. We design and synthesise new materials, including graphene and other nanocarbons, nanostructured conducting polymers and hybrid nanocomposite materials for their use in energy storage devices, such as rechargeable lithium batteries or other non-lithium technologies (i.e. sodium and zinc), supercapacitors and hybrid devices.
Este contrato es parte del proyecto PLEC2022-009328 financiado por MCIN/AEI/10.13039/501100011033 y por la Unión Europea NextGenerationEU/ PRTR
Main Tasks and responsibilities:
Support on the development of a novel battery concept based on nanopastes. The main task and responsibilities will be:
- Electroactive nanomaterials preparation and their characterization (CV, FTIR, TEM, SEM...)
- Support on cell assembly.
- Electrochemical measurements (CV, GCD, Impedance) for cell characterization.
- Writing scientific reports.
- Degree in Chemical Engineering and/or Chemistry.
- Master holding would be a plus.
- Supercapacitors and batteries development
- Preparation of nanomaterials (inorganic and/or organic)
- Characterization techniques for nanomaterials (electrochemical, electronic microscopy, chemical analysis)
- Team-working and collaborative person
- Good communication and writing skills in English will be required (Spanish and Catalan desirable).
Summary of conditions:
