Vacancy No. HIU 07-2017
PhD Position in Synthesis of Advanced Materials for Energy Storage Systems
You will develop novel advanced material structures for Li-ion batteries and post-lithium energy storage systems like Na- and the emerging K-ion batteries. Structural, morphological and chemical characterization of the materials will be performed by using ex-situ and in-situ techniques (SEM, XPS, XRD, EXAFS etc.). You will develop and optimize electrodes and electrochemical cells and conduct a complete electrochemical characterization of the synthesized materials. Your work will also involve the presentation of the results at national and international conferences and publication in peer-reviewed international journals.
The working place is in Karlsruhe (KIT campus north and campus south).
We are looking for a dynamic, serious, and motivated researcher with a Diploma or Master degree in Chemistry, Material Science or related discipline. The candidate is expected to have a background in material synthesis and/or electrochemistry and good communication skills. Fluent German and good knowledge of English are required.
