University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne
PhD student: Silicon/titania nanostructures for lithium ion batteries
Laboratoire de Recherche en Nanosciences (LRN) at the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne is recruiting a PhD student for the Nano-SiBL project in the topic of silicon/titania nanostructures for lithium ion batteries. The role of the PhD project will be synthesis of 1-D silicon and silicon/titania nanostructures by means of electrodeposition. The experimental work will be performed in glove box. The primary goals are synthesis, materials characterization, and study of the fundamental properties for the composites. The developed materials will be studied as a negative electrodes in lithium ion batteries.
As a PhD student you will be working with researchers at the Laboratoire de Recherche en Nanosciences (LRN) Reims, France and Laboratoire de Reactivite et Chimie des Solides (LRCS), Amiens, France. As the successful candidate you will have an experience in electrochemistry and preferably in lithium ion batteries. You will also have demonstrated ability to experimentally realize and characterize 1-D dimensional materials as well as experience of working with state-of-the-art electrochemical techniques. Furthermore, we seek the ability to work effectively both as a member of a research team and independently when required, to meet project outcomes and milestones.
This appointment will be for 3 years.
Application including full CV should be sent before 25th of March 2015 via
