Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia – IIT (www.iit.it) is opening a post-doctoral position on science and technology of advanced nanomaterials synthesis of interest for Li-ion batteries and energy storage systems in the framework of the Future & Emerging Technologies flagship project on graphene and other 2d crystals, Graphene Flagship (http://graphene-flagship.eu/) funded by the European Union for the 2013-2023 period.
A post-doctoral position is currently available to work in the context of Energy Storage of the Graphene Flagship under the umbrella of IIT Graphene Labs (http://graphene.iit.it) in strong collaboration with partners of the Graphene Flagship. The work will be conducted within the GrapheneCore1 project "Graphene-based disruptive technologies", funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme with grant agreement n. 696656. He/She will work in the field of plasma synthesis of nanomaterials for the development of high-performing electrodes for Li-ion batteries and energy storage systems. This will involve set-up of the plasma reactor, plasma synthesis and post-processing preparation of nanoparticles and other nanomaterials of interest for energy storage technology, their surface engineering, assembly and device fabrication and characterizations. The major objective is to develop a full Li-ion battery obtained by coupling plasma-synthetized nanoparticels with 2d nanomaterials-based anode and cathode.
The selected candidate will join the CNST@PoliMI, IIT in Milano, Italy in the group coordinated by Fabio Di Fonzo.
Eligible applicants hold a PhD in Chemistry, Physics or Material Science. Candidates with proven expertise in plasma processing and plasma synthesis of nanomaterials and with strong background in the advanced techniques of nanomaterials characterization and in materials science will be positively evaluated.
The closing date is June 21, 2017 and applications, including a cover letter, CV and names of two referees should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org quoting “Post doc on advanced nanomaterials synthesis for Li-ion batteries and energy storage technologies - CB 73853” in the subject line.
