- Oct 3rd 2020 Postdoctoral Scholar in Lithium-Ion Battery Anodes (NOW CLOSED)
We seek applications for the immediate appoinment of a postdoctoral scholar in the field of advanced lithium-ion battery anodes, specifically graphite, hard carbon, and silicon-based materials.
An electrochemist is sought who has extensive experience fabricating lithium-ion coin and pouch cells, characterizing the cells using galvanostatic cycling, cyclic voltammetry, and impedance spectroscopy, and analyzing and reporting large quantities of electrochemical data (several dozen cells) in short reporting periods (typically one week timescales). Experience with standard lithium-ion chemistries in anodic half-cell configuration is preferred (graphite/carbon, carbonate electrolytes, lithium metal) and previous experience with high-precision coulometry is heavily weighted for favorable consideration.
Qualifications: PhD in chemistry, materials science, or a related field (e.g., engineering), experience fabricating/characterizing coin and/or pouch cells
Department of Appointment: Chemistry & Biochemistry, Montana State University
Appointment Period: 12 months, extension possible
Start Date: Immediately
Project/Funding Source: This project is embedded within the larger Center for Research in Extreme Batteries, as part of a team of five research groups at Montana State University, five research groups at the University of Maryland, and additional researchers at the Army Research Laboratory, Argonne National Laboratory, NIST, Stony Brook University, and UT Austin.
Contact: Prof. Nicholas Stadie
Application Materials: CV, PhD thesis (or link), and cover letter explaining your research interests and future goals
Note: This search is closed as of 20 Oct 2020.
