The DTU Nanolab at Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is looking for a skilled PhD candidate to develop novel strategies for highly integrated 3D carbon micro- and nanoelectrodes as part of the project ‘Pyrolytic Hierarchical Organic Electrodes for sustaiNable Electrochemical Energy Systems (PHOENEEX)’, which is funded by an European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator Grant.
About the project:
- The specific aim of this PhD project is to implement and optimize novel strategies for cleanroom-based micro- and nanofabrication of 3DCME. Methods such as photolithography, deep reactive ion etching, plasma polymerization and pyrolysis will be investigated to maximize electrode surface area and minimize the distance between two terminals of interdigitated electrodes.
- The structural and electrical properties of the electrodes will be investigated and the electrochemical performance will be assessed.
- Applicant must have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) in micro- or nanoengineering, physics, mechanical engineering, material engineering or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree.
- Applicant must have hands-on experience in micro- and nanofabrication.
- Applicant must be able to interact with researchers in a very interdisciplinary environment.
- Applicant must have high grade average and excellent English language skills.
Apply online and attach all materials in English in one PDF file. The file must include:
- A letter motivating the application (cover letter)
- Curriculum vitae
- Grade transcripts and BSc/MSc diploma
