4-year PhD position about advanced experimental characterization and optimization of state-of-the-art solid-state battery systems. The research work will be carried out at the research groups Electrochemical and Surface Engineering (SURF) and of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), in the framework of a Flemish project with several academic and industrial partners. Experimental work and computer modeling will be carried out in combination. This vacancy is focuses on experimental research, and a second vacancy is focused mostly on computer modeling (check other vacancy description).
You will work in a multidisciplinary and multicultural research environment, oriented to study electrochemical processes combining electrochemical techniques, modeling, and surface characterization (both ex-situ and in-situ). The aim of the project is to develop a material agnostic modelling tool for the prediction of performance and lifetime (ageing) of composite cathode/solid electrolyte materials for all-solid-state Li-ion batteries to accelerate developments in a cost-effective way. A hybrid experimental/modelling multiscale methodology is applied because the performance of the composite cathode is the result of an intense interplay between several physical phenomena that need to be understood, measured, modelled, and eventually validated by battery lifetime testing. To perform this research you will have access to a wide range of state-of-the-art equipment and techniques in electrochemistry (potentiostats, electrochemcial reactors, EIS,…), surface analysis at the nanoscale (FE-SEM, FE-Auger, XPS, Ellipsometry, AFM/STM, Raman, ...), and industrial standard dry-room facilities and battery testers. As the project is part of a network of academic and industrial partners, the PhD work will be carried out in collaboration with other institutes.
