Postdoctoral Researcher to Evaluate the Impact of Pouch Cell Assembly Parameters between Electrode and Gel-polymer Electrolyte Interlayers

CIC energiGUNE

Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain

JOB DESCRIPTION:

CIC energiGUNE is seeking for a postdoctoral researcher to contribute to the design of new lithium ion batteries for high capacity and high voltage applications. The researcher will be focused on developing and validating the gellified cell concept by understanding the impact of the cell design and assembly processes on the performance of the cell. The research is within the framework of the NEXTCELL project and involves excellent scientists at the technological and scientific leading edge, who will address new challenges in the emerging field of solid state batteries.

Main functions:

  • Fundamental understanding of the effect of the assembly parameters (electrode cutting, packaging, contact terminals and sealing conditions) in monolayer and multilayer pouch cells;
  • Analysis of the electrode/separator interface quality and their influence after cycling;
  • Determination of the effect of different cell design/processing factors including membrane thickness, calendering and alignment on the electrochemical performance.

REQUIREMENTS

  • PhD in chemistry, materials science, chemical engineering or related fields;
  • Experience working with polymer electrolytes;
  • Knowledge and experience in the following topics will be taken into account:
    • Pouch cell design and assembly;
    • Electrochemical characterization techniques: EIS, CV and galvanostatic charge and discharge;
    • Physico-chemical characterization of materials: AFM, Contact angle, FTIR, profilometer, SEM, etc.
  • A team player who can collaborate with colleagues in other groups, technological centers and industries;
  • Good verbal and written communication skills in English.
