Study Area: Polymer Composite Cathodes for Solid State Batteries
Postdoctoral Research Associate in Polymer Composite Cathodes for Solid State Batteries
The post involves research into the composite cathode used in solid-state lithium-ion batteries. The research will focus on using polymers developed in the Williams research team as binders and electrolytes in the cathodes with inorganic materials. The role includes materials characterization, testing different cathode fabrication methods, and the production of coin and pouch cells.
Eligibility: To be eligible, candidates must hold a Ph.D. in Battery Materials with experience in organic-inorganic composite fabrication. Expertise in electrochemistry, cell fabrication, testing, and the processing of composite materials using polymers is essential. The candidate should have a deep understanding of previous research, demonstrate research competence through publications, and communicate effectively in English.
