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 obtained by circulating the electrolyte in the reactor, within porous electrodes. Postdoctoral research will focus on exploring the reactivity of new organic electrolytes with different electrode materials.
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 carried out within the framework of the European consortium HIGREEW (Affordable High-Performance Green Redox Flow Batteries; contract number 875613; https://uniresearch.com/projects/higreew/). The work will be conducted at the Laboratory of physical chemistry and microbiology for materials and the environment (http://www.lcpme.cnrs-nancy.fr) in collaboration with the Jean Lamour Institute (https: //ijl.univ- lorraine.fr) and in close partnership with the European partners of the project.
