This work focuses on the physical/electrochemical characterization of anion exchange membranes with application in water electrolysis. In particular, ionic conductivity measurements will be carried out on membranes based on different ionomers and also comprising polymer reinforcements. Membrane-electrode assemblies will also be characterized in an electrolysis cell. Knowledge of French or English will be essential.
• Ion conductivity measurements / impedance spectroscopy
• Preparation of membrane-electrode assemblies
• Characterization in electrolysis test bench
• Drafting of activity reports
The candidate must be highly motivated and autonomous, and have a solid knowledge of materials/polymer science, in particular on the physico-chemical characterization aspect. Some knowledge/experience with ion exchange membranes would be advantageous.
The Institut Charles Gerhardt de Montpellier (ICGM) UMR 5253 is one of the four Institutes of the Balard Chemistry pole. The Department of Materials Chemistry, Nanostructures, Materials for Energy brings together around 70 researchers and lecturer, doctoral students, and post-docs, who develop their research activities on materials and their mechanisms of action for energy by implementing expertise in chemistry and physico-chemistry of materials and interfaces, solid state and materials chemistry. The activity of the recruited person will be carried out within the "Energy Conversion" group, in connection with the group's activities on fuel cell and electrolyzer core materials, and within the framework of the EU project ANIONE.
