CIC energiGUNE has been awarded by the European Commission with the ´HR Excellence in Research´which reflects our commitment to achieve fair and transparent recruitment and appraisal procedures,and certifies the existence of a stimulating and favorable work environment for researchers in our institution.

CIC energiGUNE is currently offering one Post-doctoral position in the Thermal Energy Storage (TES) group. The main activities of this research group are the identification of innovative heat storage solutions through the development of new materials, conceptual storage system designs and prototyping.

In this frame, we are now inviting applications for one Post-doctoral position in the field of Phase Change Materials for latent heat storage. The main activities to be developed by the selected candidate will consist on synthesis and characterization of new PCMs, among others, used for batteries thermal management.

Preference will be given to candidates with extensive hands-on experience in phase change materials synthesis and characterization, familiar with impregnation techniques and heat transfer enhancement.   

Job functions:

  • Development of new PCMs for thermal energy storage and thermal management
  • Characterization of developed materials with XRD, SEM, TEM, FTIR, Raman, etc.
  • Collaborate in prototype development and lab scale testing of the developed materials
  • Present obtained results in high-quality scientific articles and related conferences
  • Participation to benchmarking activities
  • Collaboration in project proposal writing to obtain funding from institutions and industrial sources.
  • Co-supervise graduate/master students.
