KIC Industrial Doctorate

 Call for Applications for an Industrial doctorate position

Host Institution: Francisco Albero S.A.U S.A
in collaboration with IREC and Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa Francisco Albero S.A.U S.A (www.fae.es ) is looking for pre-doctoral candidates to develop his activity in electrochemical energy storage device and system development program.

Activity:
The main activity will be focused on development and assembling of advanced high rate supercapacitor prototypes using innovative materials and a novel configuration to achieve increased capacitance values and increased energy storage ability. The optimization of these devices requires a deep study of the cathode and anode materials as well electrolytes (aquesous and non-aqueous electrolytes).
The work plan implies material preparation, stack fabrication, assembling of prototypes and testing towards optimised parameter values for costumer applications, beyong individual elements.

Tasks and responsibilities:
1) Design and fabrication of novel materials, including synergic oxide mixtures over nanostructures (metallic and carbonaceous) in an attempt to enhance surface area and to decrease electrode weight.
2) Electrochemical testing and physico-chemical characterisation of the materials.
3) Design and Fabrication of stacks for supercapacitors and assembling of the prototypes.
4) Testing of the prototypes, life time prediction and life cycle analysis.
5) Fabrication technology roadmap definition

The successful candidate will develop multidisciplinary research on developing materials and devices for electrochemical energy storage.

Requirements for candidates are:
Degree and Master Degree in Physics or Chemistry, or Engineering or other related technological areas (including master degrees to be completed at the end of the course 2016/2017). Moreover, multidisciplinary qualifications and specializations/experience in Nanotechnology, Material synthesis, electronic devices, electrochemistry, catalysis, product engineering will be an added value. Abilities and skills required are: Capacity to organize and to manage research, self-critical, capacity to learn and bring knowledge, interact with the team members, capacity to follow and maintain rules and protocols, experimental skills and expertise and high level of English and good communication skills.

Interested candidates should send a detailed CV, including his/her contribution valorization to the proposed tasks and equivalent qualifications according to the Spanish international harmonization rules (>6,5/10) as well as a motivation letter to
