2 PhD positions: Development of High-Performance Biobased Supercapacitors 619 views

The Renewable Materials and Nanotechnology research group (Department of Chemical Engineering) under Prof. Dr. Wim Thielemans at KU Leuvenhas two vacant PhD positions in Development of High-Performance Biobased Supercapacitors.

About the Project:
  • The selected candidates in this project will work on new supercapacitor devices will be developed that fill a technologically viable place in the Ragone plot gap between batteries and electrochemical double-layer capacitors with needed high energy density and power characteristics, high cycling stability, and largely based on renewable resources.
  • The target is a specific energy and power or respectively 150-300 W · h / kg and 10-50 kW / kg and scalable methods for electrode material preparation will be developed.
  • Two PhD students are required to work in tandem on various aspects of this project and who will collaborate and support each other.
  • This work will also be carried out in collaboration with Prof. dr. Stefan Spirk and Prof. dr. Stefan Freunberger at TU Graz (Austria) so scientific visits to Austria are a possibility.


  • Candidates to be enthusiastic scientist with an interest in the development of sustainable supercapacitor electrode materials and nanoparticle self-assembly.
  • Preference will be given to students with a degree in Chemical Engineering, Physics, Chemistry or Bio-Engineering.
  • Experience with supercapacitor development and characterization and / or substantial general electrochemistry will be a strong plus in the application.
