Research program: Advanced Nanostructured Materials Design for Novel Rechargeable Batteries/Electrocatalysis

Reference number: 6001

Supervisor: Xiaolei Wang and Alex De Visscher

Overview

Conventional rechargeable lithium-ion battery (LIB) technology has already reached their limits with insufficient energy for electronics with longer standing time or electric vehicles with longer driving distance. Novel advanced battery technologies addressing the energy, cost, and reliability issues of conventional LIBs are highly demanded. This research program aims to develop novel rechargeable multivalent-ion battery technologies including magnesium (Mg2+)-, aluminum (Al3+)-, and zinc (Zn2+)-ion batteries/electrocatalysis systems In order to achieve this goal, novel materials design and synthesis strategies will be applied for the preparation of various new nanostructured energy materials with excellent physico-chemical properties, unique microstructures and desired electrochemical/electrocatalytic behaviors.

Qualifications

  1. PhD in Material Science, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering or related fields with extensive research experience in the preparation of nanostructured materials and the development of energy storage systems including rechargeable lithium (or other allaline)-ion batteries, supercapacitors, and electrocatalysis.

Eligibility

2.    Must not currently hold a postdoc appointment at Concordia

  1. Priority will be given to postdoctoral fellows who have obtained their PhD from another university although in exceptional cases Concordia graduates may be considered

Timeline: The Postdoc must start his/her appointment by December 31, 2019.

Application process

  • All documents must be submitted to Niyusha Samadi.
  • Please include the reference number with your application

Documents Required

  1. One to three (1-3) page research statement demonstrating fit with the program described above.
  2. Current curriculum vitae demonstrating research excellence and a capacity for leadership in the domain (maximum 5 pages).
  3. Two letters of reference from academic supervisors or current employers to be sent via e-mail directly to Niyusha Samadi.
