PhD Thesis Position: Upscaling of layered oxide cathode materials for Na-ion batteries

Publié il y a 1 mois

Offer Description


CIC energiGUNE is seeking a person interested in pursuing a PhD in sodium-ion cathode material and electrode fabrication, with a focus on developing the scalable synthesis of materials to be optimised chemically, morphologically, and electrochemically for processability and performance.

The research activity will involve determining optimal synthesis parameters and their interactions, as well as their effect on the structural, physico-chemical, and electrochemical nature of the produced materials. The candidate will develop routes to control the purity, structure, and microstructure, as well as later investigating additional approaches and treatments to improve parent material performance yet further.  In addition, cell integration into proof-of-concept cells will be carried out in order to perform electrochemical and chemical characterization before, during, and after cycling to investigate the key factors affecting performance.

Main functions:

  • Performing high-quality research within the scope of the project.
  • Preparation of reports and papers for submission to peer reviewed journals.
  • Presenting results at international conferences.
  • Providing guidance to students when required.
