OFFER DESCRIPTION

The aluminum (Al) - air battery is considered to be an attractive candidate as a power source for electric vehicles because of its high theoretical energy density. However, some technical and scientific problems preventing the large-scale development of Al - air batteries are to be resolved. Al - air battery chemistries are facing a series of problems such as the corrosion of Al anode, high self-discharge rate, sluggish discharge kinetics, lack of rechargeability, and short shelf life. The aim of a postdoc candidate is to address the abovementioned challenges by developing of a unique Al anode produced by powder metallurgy approach. This will require a good understanding of the relationship between the anode`s microstructure and performance. The main task of the postdoc will be electro-chemical analyses including galvanostatic testing, impedance spectrometry, measurement of polarization curves, etc. Other duties involve coordination of analyses, exploitation and synthesis of results, organization of follow-up meetings, oral presentations, writing of reports and scientific articles. The postdoc will closely collaborate with other postdoc team member, who`s been focused more towards processing issues in terms of Al - air batteries.
