A two-year post-doctoral position is open to a young researcher motivated by the field of electrochemical energy storage. Among the different technologies considered for the storage of renewable energies are redox batteries. The principle of redox batteries is that electrical energy is stored in fluid electrolytes. Charging and discharging is achieved by circulating the electrolyte through the reactor. Mass transfer of the electrolyte remains a problem and postdoctoral research will focus on exploring novel electrodes for optimal mass and electron transfer reactions with electrolytes.
Conventional vanadium electrolyte and new emerging organic electrolytes will be taken into account in evaluating the performance of materials. Research will be carried out to adapt the preparation process to the pilot level (~ m2).
The candidate must have a strong background in electrochemistry and/or a first experience in battery technology. Good expertise in electrochemical impedance spectroscopy will be appreciated. A good knowledge of electrode modification and/or carbon materials will be considered. A good knowledge of polymer chemistry will also be appreciated.
The candidate must be fluent in English and be independent in writing reports.
The research will be conducted at the Physical Chemistry and Microbiology Laboratory for Materials and the Environment (http://www.lcpme.cnrs-nancy.fr).
