PHD STUDENT ENERGY HARVESTING + ENERGY STORAGE

Descripción de la oferta de empleo

The mission of the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2) is to achieve the highest level of scientific and technological excellence in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. Its research lines focus on the newly-discovered physical and chemical properties that arise from the behavior of matter at the nanoscale. ICN2 has been awarded with the Severo Ochoa Center of Excellence distinction for two consecutive periods (2014-2018 and 2018-2022). ICN2 comprises 19 Research Groups, 7 Technical Development and Support Units and Facilities, and 2 Research Platforms, covering different areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology.

Job Title: PhD Student

Research area or group: Group NEO-Energy. TOPIC: Energy harvesting + Energy storage

Description of Group/Project:

The NEO-Energy group specialises in the development of nanomaterials for energy applications. We seek to develop Triboelectric Nanogenerators (TENGS) which could be coupled with capacitive energy storage devices (supercapacitors) in a single integrated 'harvestorage' device.

Main Tasks and responsibilities:

  • Setting up laboratory scale Triboelectric nanogenerators (TENG) and supercapacitors
  • Develop nanostructured surfaces of the materials used as electrodes
  • Properties characterization and tests of performance
  • Design and fabricate an integrated harvesting-storage device.

Requisitos del puesto

Requirements:

  • Education

Have obtained a Master or equivalent degree in Applied Physics, Materials Science, Engineering, Nano, Chemistry

  • Skills

Device set-up and monitoring, electronics, materials

High level of English.

  • Professional Experience

A previous professional track is not required. But technical experience in fields related to the topic and/ or short stays in relevant laboratories will be positively valued.
