Postdoc position in Materials Science, Inorganic chemistry and Nanotechnology 2405 views


An 18 month position as a researcher within the field of Inorganic materials chemistry (battery materials) is available at the Department of Chemistry/Centre for Materials Science and Nanotechnology (SMN), section NAFUMA – nanostructures and functional materials.

About the position:

  1. We are looking for a creative, skilled and ambitious researcher to join our research activities on battery materials.
  2. The researcher will work in a team of 6-10 PhD students and post doctor fellows /researchers.
  3. External collaboration with other academic research groups and industry actors will take place via the current project SilcRoad (funded by the Research Council of Norway; coordinated by the Institute for Energy Technology, IFE), as well as the FME center MoZEES.
  4. The main topic for the work in the Silcroad project is the studies of Si-based model materials for anodes in Li-ion batteries.
  5. The primary focus of the advertised position will be on studies of thin film/coatings of Si-based electrode materials with the use of X-ray diffraction, scattering, reflectometry as well as optical spectroscopy.
  6. Other characterization methods may also be applied, e.g. NMR, XPS, SEM and TEM, primarily by SINTEF as project partner.
  7. The preparation of model materials and electrodes will be primarily done by IFE.
  8. In addition, within this project post mortem analysis and operando studies will be carried out.
  9. Experiments using synchrotron radiation are foreseen, depending on access and travelling regulations.

Eligibility criteria:

  • The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences has a strategic ambition is to be among Europe’s leading communities for research, education and innovation.
