Postdoctoral Researcher in High-throughput Battery Cathodes

CIC Energigune - Energy Cooperative Research Centre

Miñano Alava, Spain

Project description

CIC energiGUNE is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to work in the high throughput development of inorganic cathode materials for Li-ion batteries using automatized modules for their synthesis and characterisation with the final goal to accelerate the discovery of materials for the energy transition. This work will be performed in collaboration with Umicore.

Job functions

  • High throughput synthesis of inorganic cathode materials using our new automated laboratory platforms;
  • Physical-chemical and structural characterization of the prepared materials (X-ray diffraction, electron microscopy, chemical analyses, thermogravimetric analyses, etc.);
  • Preliminary electrochemical characterization using galvanostatic cycling of half-cells;
  • Collaboration in the development and optimization of automatized solutions for high throughput characterization modules;
  • Assessment of Supervised Learning (SL) algorithms in collaboration with the Atomistic Modelling and Computational research group;
  • Writing of technical reports and scientific publications and participation to national and international conferences.

Requirements

  • PhD Degree in Materials Science or Chemistry or related fields;
  • Solid background in inorganic Li-ion electrode materials and their physico-chemical, structural and electrochemical characterization using various analytical techniques (XRD, SEM, DSC/TG, galvanostatic charge-discharge tests, etc.);
  • Basic knowledge in computation and programming (e.g. Fortran, Python, C++) will be valued;
  • Demonstrated self-motivation and ability to work independently;
  • A good team player who can collaborate well with other scientists;
  • A Highly motivated person with an interest in research;
  • A good level of spoken and written English Spanish is not compulsory.
