نشرت شهرين منذ

The Institute of Chemical Engineering Sciences, Foundation of Research and Technology – Hellas, (FORTH/ICE- HT) is seeking applicants for one PhD candidate position in the context of the research project «Innovative pilot lines for sustainable graphene-based flexible and structural energy harvesting and storage devices (GRAPHERGIA), GA: 101120832», which is implemented under the HORIZON EUROPE.

Job Description

To conduct research as a Ph.D. candidate in the framework of the aforementioned project “GRAPHERGIA”. The main objective of GRAPHERGIA is to develop a new science-based, holistic approach, implementing new advances to achieve one-step, laser-assisted synthesis, processing, functionalization and simultaneous integration of graphene-based materials and graphene nanohybrids, directly into relevant energy harvesting/storage devices. The selected candidate will conduct research, as a graduate student (PhD), in the framework of the aforementioned project “GRAPHERGIA”, in the study of structural, morphological and mechanical properties of graphene-based films for supercapacitor and battery electrodes.

Location: FORTH/ICE-HT, Patras, Greece

Duration: up to 6 months, with the potential of renewal or extension according to the needs of the project.

Fellowship: up to approximately 840 € per month (graduate fellowship) depending on qualifications.

Envisaged starting date: 01/11/2023

Requirements and Qualifications

The applicant should hold both undergraduate (B.Sc.) and M.Sc. degree in Physics or Chemistry or Materials Science or relevant field. The candidate should have been registered in a Ph.D. program in Physics or Chemistry or Materials Science or Chemical Engineering or relevant field. Experience with Raman spectroscopy as well as with characterization of the morphology and the mechanical properties of graphene would be strongly favored. Candidates must be fluent in Greek language and have a good knowledge of English (at least level B2) language.

The evaluation of the candidacies will be based on the following criteria and qualifications:
