A two years post-doctoral position is open for a young researcher motivated by the field of electrochemical energy storage. Among different technologies considered for storage of renewable energies are redox flow batteries. The principle of redox flow batteries is that electrical energy is stored in fluid electrolytes. Charging and discharging are achieved by flowing the electrolyte in stacks of electrodes. Mass transfer of the electrolyte is still an issue and the postdoctoral research will be focused on exploring new porous electrodes for optimal mass and electron transfer reactions with electrolytes.
Both the classical vanadium electrolyte and new emerging organic electrolytes will be considered for evaluation of material performances. Research will be conducted with the objective to scale the process of preparation/activation to the pilot level (~m2).
The candidate must have a strong background in electrochemistry. A good expertise in electrochemical impedance spectroscopy will be appreciated. A good knowledge of electrode modification and/or carbon materials will be positively considered.
The candidate must be fluent in English and must be independent in writing reports.
The research will be conducted at the Laboratory of Physical Chemistry and Microbiology for Materials and Environment (http://www.lcpme.cnrs-nancy.fr) in collaboration with Institut Jean Lamour (https://ijl.univ-lorraine.fr).
