Several Ph.D. positions in electrochemical energy storage and conversion (chemistry, materials science and MechE)
The Laboratory for Electrochemical Energy Systems in the Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering is inviting applications for PhD positions in electrochemical energy storage and conversion (generally defined).
Our group targets challenges related to the development of the new solutions to satisfy the growing demand for energy. We study fundamental processes in solutions, materials and at the electrode-electrolyte interfaces. We then apply this fundamental knowledge to the development of new battery materials, electrocatalysts and electrolytes that can deliver improved performance (i.e. charging times, energy, capacity, cycling stability), cost, efficiency and safety.
This full-time position offers students an excellent opportunity to delve into energy science and gain deep fundamental knowledge of electrochemical processes and materials chemistry. Successful candidates will join inclusive, non-discriminating and supportive working environment that praises scientific curiosity and creativity. Tentative starting date is Winter 2020 or later. Applications are accepted until the positions are filled.
The successful candidate should have a Master’s degree (or being close to its completion) in Chemistry, Material Science, Mechanical Engineering, Nanoscience or related disciplines and has strong experimental background. We are looking for candidates who are self-driven and highly motivated, creative and excited to work in interdisciplinary teams. Although we welcome candidates with a diverse experimental background, having prior experience in (i) synthetic organic chemistry and/or polymers, (ii) synthesis of ceramics and/or nanoparticles, (iii) catalysis and/or electrochemistry, or (iv) synchrotron facilities and/or other in-situ characterization techniques is beneficial but not prerequisite.
ETH Zurich is one of the world’s leading universities specialising in science and technology. We are renowned for our excellent education, cutting-edge fundamental research and direct transfer of new knowledge into society. Over 30,000 people from more than 120 countries find our university to be a place that promotes independent thinking and an environment that inspires excellence. Located in the heart of Europe, yet forging connections all over the world, we work together to develop solutions for the global challenges of today and tomorrow.
We look forward to receiving your application with the following documents:
Please note that we exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal. Applications via email or postal services will not be considered.
Questions regarding the position should be directed to Prof. Maria Lukatskaya via email: firstname.lastname@example.org (no applications).
