  • Admin 

PhD 1

 

IMDEA Materials seeks a PhD student to work in the research project STEM (structural energy harvesting composite composites) funded by an ERC Starting Grant.

The research activities will be focused on the synthesis of carbon nanotubes by chemical vapour deposition (CVD) and assembly as a continuous macroscopic fibre, as well as its characterization by advanced electron microscopy, spectroscopy and WAXS-SAXS.

Requirements:

Candidates should hold a Master in Chemistry (or related discipline), have previous experience in gas-phase catalysis or growth of nanostructures by CVD. Excellent academic credentials and a strong commitment to develop an academic career in an international and multidisciplinary environment are expected.

Fluent oral and written English is required.

No knowledge of Spanish is required (free lessons provided)

Conditions:

Full time contract including social security coverage. Salary depending on previous experience and credentials.

Starting date: July – September 2017

PhD 2

 

IMDEA Materials seeks a PhD student to work in the research project STEM (structural energy harvesting composite composites) funded by an ERC Starting Grant.

The research activities will be focused on the development of hybrids based on semiconducting metal oxides and porous flexible scaffolds made of carbonnanotube yarns.

The goal is to produce bulk nanoporous electrodes with highly engineered interface that improve charge transfer and storage. Finally, these materials will be used in selected devices (photo(electro)catalytic and electrochemical) fabricated with support from the group and collaborators.

Requirements:

Candidates should hold a Master in Chemistry, Materials Science, (or related discipline), have previous experience with wet-chemical methods, inorganic chemistry, materials characterization techniques (XRD, SEM) and familiarity with EIS. Excellent academic credentials and a strong commitment to develop an academic career in an international and multidisciplinary environment are expected.

Fluent oral and written English is required.

No knowledge of Spanish is required (free lessons provided).

Conditions:

Full time contract including social security coverage. Salary depending onprevious experience and credentials.

Starting date: July – September 2017
