Electrode Material Development for Flow Battery for Energy Storage 

This European Horizon 2020 programme funded post is available to participate in

The post

The project aims to develop a low cost high efficient membrane-free redox flow battery system based on hydrogen and bromine redox couples. The successful applicant will involve in design and development of bromine positive electrode. The research work will be focused on identification and fabrication of functional carbon-based materials which is proved to be suitable for high performance for the positive bromine electrodes.

With over 22,000 students and 5,500 staff from 180 different countries we offer a diverse and engaging environment in which to work. We are an equal opportunity employer, a Disability Confident employer and an Athena Swan accredited institution. Whilst all applicants will be judged on merit alone, we particularly welcome applications from groups currently underrepresented in the workforce
