The School of Chemical Science and Engineering at KTH Royal Institute of Technology invites application for Postdoctoral research position in electrochemical energy storage (Reference number: K-2017-0075). At Applied Electrochemistry the department has long experience of working with electrochemical storage/ conversion for vehicle applications.
Li-ion battery research constitutes an important part, where both experimental techniques & mathematical modeling are important tools. In a project centered on life-time prediction & aging of vehicle batteries, the department will look at gas-evolution during battery aging.
The work would be experimentally focused, & consist of design & method development for in-situ gas analysis of relevant battery chemistries, both on larger cells used in vehicles, & for smaller model-system. The project relates to other ongoing Li-ion battery projects within the group at KTH & within the Swedish Electromobility Center.
Qualifications and Requirements:
Eligibility criterion is as follows:
- PhD., not older than three years, in a relevant area, such as chemical engineering, electrochemistry, material science, chemistry, or related field.
- Experience with mass spectrometry, gas analysis, electrochemistry, or analytical chemistry techniques would be desirable.
- The ability to work both independently & collaboratively would be an advantage.
- Excellent command of written & spoken English is a requirement.
