PhD Scholarship in In Situ Studies of Rechargeable Batteries Using Neutron and Hard X-ray Diffraction

Technical University of Denmark, Denmark is inviting excellent candidates to apply for a PhD position in sustainable energy. The funding allows successful candidate to work for 3 years. This position is closed on March 01, 2019.

Department of Energy Conversion and Storage at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU Energy) invites applications for one PhD-position in investigation of rechargeable batteries using in situ neutron and hard synchrotron X-ray diffraction. The PhD project is part of the ESS Lighthouse SMART - Structure of Materials in Real Time and will be carried out in collaboration with SDU. The project will be performed in the section “Imaging and Structural Analysis”. The position is available starting April 1 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The project focuses on studies of commercial and prototype rechargeable batteries, e.g. lithium and sodium ion batteries, with emphasis on in situ and in operando diffraction studies. Structural changes, degradation and intercalation/conversion reactions during charge/discharge will be studied using a combination of hard synchrotron X-ray and neutron diffraction and scattering. The project includes collaboration with academic and industrial partners. Candidates should have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree.

The candidate should have a master's degree in chemistry, physics or similar with good knowledge of solid state chemistry and electrochemistry and experience in battery research. Experience in powder diffraction is a prerequisite. As a successful candidate you have : The scholarship for the PhD degree is subject to academic approval, and the candidate will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes at DTU. For information about our enrolment requirements and the general planning of the PhD study programme, please see the DTU PhD Guide.
