CIC energiGUNE is seeking for a postdoctoral researcher to engage in our XRD Platform. The aim of the project is to develop new carbon materials to be used in Li-ion and Na-ion batteries, designed from the point of view of their microstructure and with performance beyond current state of the art. To do so, ex-situ and in-situ X-ray diffraction and Small Angle X-ray Scattering will be used to access unprecedented understanding on the charge storage mechanism of hard carbons and its correlation with the microstructure so that the critical microstructural parameters are identified and targeted in the synthesis of advanced carbons for batteries. Experimental work will include synthesis, materials charcterizations (XRD, SEM, Raman, gas adsorption etc…), in-situ/operando mecanistic charcetrizations (XRD, SAXS, XAS, etc…), as well as electrochemical performance assessment.
The selection process ends once a candidate is selected.
