PhD Position in Electrochemical Energy Storage and Conversion
Background: Advanced materials in energy-related application areas, such as batteries, fuel cells, electrolysis, and catalysis, are often exposed to high temperatures, and/or harsh chemical and electrochemical environments during their routine operation conditions. Performance and lifetime of these materials are directly associated with the interplay between the electrical, chemical and mechanical properties. Understanding and optimizing chemo-mechanical responses of advanced materials is required in order to design new materials with synergistic properties, which offer the possibility of fabricating high performance energy conversion and storage devices at low cost.
Job Description: Ph.D. student will work on the investigation of degradation mechanisms in electrochemical energy conversion and storage materials using in situ stress and strain measurement techniques. Electrode-electrolyte interaction, structural stability and material performance will be characterized in various of battery and fuel cell systems. Continuum based mathematical model will be derived in order to optimize material properties. New advanced materials with desired properties for next generation energy conversion and storage devices will be developed by utilizing material based strategies. Detailed project descriptions and planning will be undertaken directly with the successful candidates.
Our Offer: Advanced Materials & Electrochemistry for Energy (AMEE) Research Group in the School of Chemical Engineering at Oklahoma State University is seeking exceptionally talented and motivated students to join our young and ambitious research team. Ph.D. position is available in the area of advanced batteries (e.g. Li-Sulfur, Li-Oxygen and Na-Ion), fuel cells (e.g. solid-oxide fuel cells) and other energy conversion and storage-related areas. Ph.D. student will develop exceptional skills and expertise in the areas of electrochemistry, defect chemistry, mechanics of materials, and material fabrication during their studies. The selected candidate will present their work at international conferences such as AlCHE and ECS. Ph.D. student will also have opportunities to closely work with collaborators at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Iowa State University, and Argonne National Laboratory.
How to Apply: Interested candidates should send their CV to email@example.com by addressing Dr. Özgür Çapraz.
