MDEA Materials seeks a full-time Ph.D. with a priority to candidates with experience and interest in nanostructured materials for energy storage. We are looking for an individual with initiative and motivation to start her/his career in the Multifunctional Nanocomposites Group.
The project is focused on developing new battery electrodes based on composites of active materials and nanostructured carbon nanotube fabrics. The aims are to design novel integration routes, increase understanding coupled mechanical-electrochemical properties, and apply advanced spectroscopic and X-ray characterization tools to these complex hierarchical structures in order to identify critical structural descriptors for battery performance.
The Ph.D. candidate will acquire hands-on experience with advanced fabrication, characterization and analysis methods associated with new electrode materials for electrochemical energy storage.
Interaction with the group’s worldwide network of research laboratories and companies will be encouraged.
Candidates should hold a Bachelor/Master in Materials Science, Physics or Chemistry. Experience in characterization of materials for electrochemical energy storage, or related, will be positively evaluated.
Excellent academic records and a strong commitment to develop an academic career in an international and multidisciplinary environment are expected.
Fluent oral and written English is required as this is the official language of the group. No knowledge of Spanish is required (free lessons provided).
Full-time contract including social security coverage.
Salary depending on previous experience and credentials.
