Post-doctoral Researcher in the Research Group Electron Microscopy for Materials Research

Post-doctoral Researcher in the Research Group Electron Microscopy for Materials Research

University of Antwerp

Antwerp, Belgium

The Faculty of Science of the University of Antwerp is seeking to fill a full-time (100%) vacancy for a post-doctoral researcher in the research group Electron Microscopy for Materials Research (EMAT), in the framework of an FWO project on Li-ion batteries, under the supervision of Prof. Sara Bals. The main goal of the project is to study structural changes, occurring at newly synthesized high-capacity electrode materials for Li-ion batteries upon cycling, with state-of-the-art structure characterization techniques, and relate them to the electrochemical properties. This project will thus result in new viable Li-ion battery cathodes and allow the comprehensive understanding of the role of the microstructure, local structure, and local valence for the stability of Li-rich layered cathodes, major candidates for future advanced rechargeable Li-ion batteries.

Research group

EMAT is one of the leading electron microscopy centers in the world and has a vast expertise in both fundamental and applied electron microscopy. EMAT has several state of the art electron microscopes including three aberration corrected, high end FEI-Titan instruments, a dual beam FIB, an environmental SEM,...
