(CNRS/UMR5819-SyMMESLlab.) is looking for a dedicated+skilled electrochemist by training for joining the CNRS+UGA team of the H2020's project HIDDEN (part of the battery 2030 large scale (FET-flagship) 2020-2030 initiative: https://battery2030.eu/).
The candidates should hold a PhD degree in Electrochemistry (or Materials Science) in the field of Electrotrochemical Energy Storage, with strong skills, track record experience and practical and hands on expertise in i) the design/assembly of electrochemical cells (batteries & pouch cells) and ii) the advanced characterizations (CV, PEIS, GCPL, GIIT) of high-performance rechargeable batteries (e.g. Lithium-Ion/metal batteries (LiBs/LMBs)). Know-how in the design/characterization of functional soft matter (e.g. smart organic ionic conductors) and/or experience in the multi-scale characterizations of the structure/dynamics/ion transport properties correlations of ionic conductors and rechargeable batteries (LiBs/LMBs) will be considered as a plus. Proven capacities for scientific autonomy and a force of proposal to carry out innovation breakthrough-oriented multidisciplinary projects combined with a tropism for synergistic work in a multidisciplinary team involved in collaborative projects at the interfaces of chemistry, electrochemistry, physicochemistry and physics of functional (macro)molecular materials and electrochemical energy storage devices will be considered most valuable.
We have an H2020 funding for up to a 28-month long PDF research contract (Employer: CNRS. Monthly gross salary: € 2,648 € to € 3,054, depending on experience) as well as a secured budget for beamtime at ESRF (http://esrf.eu/) to perform advanced ex situ, in situ and operando multiscale characterizations on LMBs, which could trigger the interests of young researchers aiming at acquiring these exquisite skills and competences.
The PostDoctoral Fellowship could start by April 1,2021.
