Qualification Details

  • The applicant should have a PhD exam or an international equivalent within the field of Chemistry or Materials Science or Physics.
  • Familiarity with characterization of battery materials, experience in working in battery labs and using gloveboxes.

Experiences in using electrochemical methods, battery assembly and cycling. The candidate must also have excellent capabilities in written and oral English

 We will place great emphasis on personal suitability. Consideration will also be given to good collaborative skills, drive and independence, and how the applicant’s experience and skills complement and strengthen the administrative work within the unit/department, as well as contribute to its future development.

Responsibilities/Job Description

The project will be carried out in Uppsala University in close collaboration with colleagues working in the Ångström Advanced Battery Centre. This project will be conducted in close contact with partners in European projects. The main duties of the position will be to conduct research into characterization of interfacial reactions between the electrodes and the electrolyte in lithium-ion batteries. Specifically, this will involve electrode preparation, cell assembly and cycling, electrochemical and materials characterization. Cathode and anode materials such as LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 (LNMO), graphite and silicon will be investigated. A variety of electrochemical measurement techniques (e.g. cyclic voltammetry, galvanostatic cycling) and characterization methods (e.g. x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, etc.) will be used to investigate reactions in battery cells. The researcher is expected to perform high quality research, with the aim of disseminating resulting works through high impact peer-reviewed journals or conference proceedings.
