The Functional Nanomaterials Group in the Advanced Materials for Energy Area of IREC announces a two year postdoctoral research position available for a highly motivated candidate to work in the EHAWEDRY Project: Energy harvesting via wetting/drying cycles with nanoporous electrodes.
Postdoctoral Research Position
The EHAWEDRY project proposes a radically new concept to harvest energy from waste heat, including very low grade waste heat, and convert it into electricity. EHAWEDRY technology is based on the coupling of charging/discharging cycles of a capacitor with the drying/wetting of its nanoporous electrodes. The concept exploits the proportionality of capacity of electrochemical super-capacitors to the area of contact between the electrode and the electrolyte solution. While the proposed technology can be applied to a plethora of scenarios, within the EHAWEDRY project we will focus on identifying scenarios for medium scale waste recovery in the industry.
The candidate will carry out a multidisciplinary activity in line with the project main goal, including synthesis of porous materials, and their application to supercapacitors.
Candidate must have a PhD degree in Chemistry, Physics, Material Science or equivalent. Previous experience in nanomaterial synthesis and the fabrication and test of supercapacitors will very valuable for the position.
- CV, personal references and a motivation letter have to be sent to Dr. Andreu Cabot (firstname.lastname@example.org ).
- Deadline for applications: May 30th 2021, 12:00 AM (Spanish local time)
- Incorporation: July-September 2021
- Duration of the contract: 24 months
The recruitment process will follow the guidelines of the European Charter of Researchers. Further information can be directly obtained from: Andreu Cabot (email@example.com ).
