Valid until 05.14.2019

CIC energiGUNE is seeking an experienced Post-doctoral Researcher to engage in applied fundamental research activities and industrial projects. The postdoc will work in two parallel topics, one dedicated to the design and development of Advanced Cathode materials for Li-ion batteries and the second dedicated to Post-Mortem analysis and determination of the main degradation mechanisms in industrial projects.

Job function

Synthesis of inorganic compounds.

Physicochemical and structural characterization of materials and cell components using various analytical techniques (XRD, SEM, Raman, DSC/TG, FTIR, etc.).

Prepare positive and negative composite electrodes for Li-ion batteries.

Electrochemical characterization (e.g. galvanostatic charge-discharge tests, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy)

Perform post-mortem analysis and understand failure mechanisms

What we offer

We are offering a 3 year contract and advantageous professional development opportunities within interesting projects in the field of batteries.

CIC energiGUNE offers a competitive basic salary augmented by important benefits such as special conditions for a private health insurance that compare favourably with the best global private and public institutions.
