This postdoc position focuses on the material design, synthesis and manufacturing for electrochemical energy storage. The postdoc will conduct experiments to develop advanced coatings, interfaces and microstructures for solid state lithium metal batteries, lithium ion batteries, ion transport engineering and other electrochemical energy storage solutions. These coatings/interfaces/electrode microstructures aim to reduce dendrite, enable fast charging, and promote solvent-free cell manufacturing. This position requires experience in material synthesis, cell assembly and electrochemistry.
• Hold a Ph.D. in chemistry, electrochemistry, materials science, chemical engineering, or a field related to electrochemistry. • Skills in materials synthesis (e.g., ceramics or polymers, interface or microstructure engineering). • Deep understanding of electrochemistry to run various electrochemical experiments and analysis. • Skills in material characterization such as using SEM/EDS, XRD, BET, FTIR and XPS. • Strong background in fabrication of lithium or lithium-ion batteries in a variety of formats (coin, pouch). • Excellent communications skills.
