DEPARTMENTElectrochemical Processes Unit
The Electrochemical Processes Unit at the IMDEA Energy Institute, welcomes postdoctoral candidates interested in applying for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (MSCA-IF) in 2019.
Before sending your application, please check the full description of the eligibility criteria that can be found in the webpage call.
Brief description of the institution:
The IMDEA Energy Institute is a Research Centre located in the town of Mostoles, in the region of Madrid (Spain). Its R&D activities are aimed to promote the development and implementation of an efficient and sustainable energy system. Accordingly, research activities are oriented to fostering the development of renewable energies and clean energy technologies in general.
Being created in 2007, IMDEA Energy has experienced a fast growth reaching in a few years a relevant international position in R&D activities on energy topics. An essential factor for explaining this successful development has been the ability for attracting top level researchers, as well as the availability of new and excellent scientific infrastructures, favoring the achievement of outstanding scientific results.

Brief description of the Unit
One of the main targets of the Electrochemical Processes Unit (ECPU) is to provide new concepts and technological alternatives for electrochemical energy storage. The energy storage systems developed by the ECPU are designed to be applicable to renewable energies, electrification of transport and the emerging nexus between water and energy. The research programme focuses on how newer materials and designs may improve the performance of these systems and on the application of electrochemical storage systems to renewable power generation systems, sustainable buildings and electric vehicles.
The Marie Curie Experienced Researcher (ER) fellow will join an interdisciplinary group of researchers – chemists, physicists and engineers – aiming to generate novel concepts, materials and devices for electrochemical energy storage. The fellow will be involved in some of the following research lines being currently addressed at ECPU:
- Redox Flow Batteries
- Organic or organometallic based electrolytes for high energy density, low-cost and sustainable RFBs
- Membrane-free concepts: immiscible electrolytes and microfluidic RFBs
- Solar-rechargeable RFB
- Metal-air (Zn-air, etc)
- Electrodes, electrolytes and electrocatalysts for lower cost and increased performance Me-air batteries
- Metal-ion Batteries (Li-ion or multivalent batteries)
- Structural Li-ion batteries based on reinforced electrodes and solid electrolytes
- New organic or inorganic electrode materials for Li-ion or multivalent batteries
- Advanced In-situ/operando characterization techniques
- Multiscale / Multiphysics Modelling applied to battery design.
- Chemistry (CHE)
- Physics (PHY)
Applications: If interested, please submit the following documents before 30th June 2019:
- Complete curriculum vitae stating background and skills
- Letter of motivation including research interests
- Two reference letters
