REFERENCE NUMBERGrant Agreement n. 785219
Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia – IIT is seeking for one post-doctoral candidate focusing on the development of high-performing electrodes for Li-ion batteries and energy storage systems.The successful candidate will join the Graphene Labs (main premises
in Genoa) and work in the framework of the Future & Emerging
Technologies flagship project on graphene and other 2D crystals, Graphene Flagship (http://graphene-flagship.eu/), funded by the European Commission with Grant Agreement n. 785219 for the 2013-2023 period.
The selected candidate will join the group coordinated by Dr Fabio Di Fonzo at the CNST@PoliMI, IIT in Milano, Italy.
He/She will work in the field of plasma synthesis of nanomaterials
for the development of high-performing electrodes for Li-ion batteries
and energy storage systems. This will involve the plasma reactor set up
as well as the plasma synthesis and post-processing preparation of
nanoparticles and other nanomaterials of interest for energy storage
technology, their surface engineering, assembly and device fabrication
and characterizations. The major objective is to develop a full Li-ion
battery obtained by coupling plasma synthetized nanoparticels with 2d
nanomaterials-based anode and cathode.
Eligible applicants should have a PhD in Chemistry, Physics or
Material Science and a proven expertise in plasma processing and plasma
synthesis of nanomaterials, with strong background in the advanced
techniques of nanomaterials characterization and in materials science. A
preferential title for the candidate is the expertise in Li-ion battery
electrodes fabrication and testing.
The closing date for applications is March 23, 2018. Please send your application, including a cover letter, your CV and names of two referees, via e-mail to email@example.com quoting “Post doc Graphene Flagship WP12 – CB 75086” in the subject line”.
Please note that this position is contingent on the signature of the relevant Grant Agreement
