Postdoc Position in Anodes for Sodium-ion Batteries

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral researcher position in civil engineering to join Uppsala University, Sweden. This fellowship is last for three years and posible to extend. Applications are invited up to September 16, 2019.

The Department of Chemistry – ngstrm conducts research and education in the chemistry field. The department has more than 230 employees and has a turnover just over 220 million SEK. At the department’s seven programs, we conduct very successful research of a high international standard. We have a large number of externally funded research projects, often with international cooperation and we see continued good growth in our subject area. The department has education assignments in engineering and civil engineering programs and master’s programs. More information is available on our website.

Subject description: The project will primarily focus on the development of anodes, such as hard carbon and alloying anodes, for sodium-ion batteries. Studies on novel materials and investigations into other components (e.g. cathodes, binders, electrolytes, etc.) may also be undertaken in order to further advance this field of research. To this end, electrochemical methods and various spectroscopic techniques will be used to study the reactions within the system with the ultimate aim of improving performance of the batteries.

Work duties: The project will be carried out in Uppsala University in close collaboration with colleagues working in the ngstrm Advanced Battery Centre. The main duties of the position will be to conduct research into sodium-ion battery technologies. Specifically, this will involve using a variety of electrochemical measurement techniques and spectroscopic methods (e.g. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, infrared spectroscopy, etc.) to study promising anodes for such systems and to also investigate other important cell components.

Requirements: For employment as postdoc, the applicant should have a PhD exam or an international equivalent within a maximum of three years before the final application date. During certain circumstances, an earlier PhD can be acceptable. Certain circumstances include leave due to illness, maternity leave, in trade unions, etc.
