The Institute of Chemical Engineering Sciences, Foundation of Research and Technology – Hellas, (FORTH/ICE-HT) is seeking applicants for one MSc fellowship 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 MSc 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 (M.Sc.), in the framework of the aforementioned project “GRAPHERGIA”, in the Synthesis of carbon-based nanostructures via electrospinning applications.

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 700 € per month (graduate fellowship) depending on qualifications.

Envisaged starting date: 01/12/2023

Requirements and Qualifications

The applicant should hold B.Sc. in Physics or Chemistry or Materials Science or relevant field. The candidate should have been registered as a Graduate student (M.Sc.) in a Materials Science related program in a Physics or Chemistry or Materials Science Department or related discipline. Experience with the use of electrospinning techniques for the preparation of polymer-based nanofibers and their heat-induced transformation to carbonaceous nanostructures would be highly preferred. Candidates must be fluent in Greek language and have a good knowledge of English (at least level B2) language.

For qualification, the applicant should possess titles or degrees by higher education institutions, acknowledged by D.O.A.T.A.P. (Hellenic N.A.R.I.C. (National Academic Recognition Information Center).

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