Are you fascinated to develop advanced materials for thermochemical energy storage applications? Do you have an experience on synthesis and characterization of functional materials?
We are looking for a 4- year PhD researcher to reinforce our team!
Thermochemical heat storage system (TCHS) is a promising technology for the efficient utilization of renewable energy all over the year. One of the main challenges of the TCHS is to develop novel thermochemical storage materials (TCMs) based on the salt hydrates with desired thermal and physical properties and superb cyclic stability. The research will be carried out in collaboration with the UT Membrane Science Technology (MST) department and the University of Amsterdam's Van der Waals-Zeeman Institute (UvA). This role focuses on the development of new formulations of thermochemical materials and fundamental study on their cyclic performance. The position requires an individual with high level of experience and qualifications related to advanced materials, high level analytical capability with proficiency in experiments and an excellent set of skills in the use of relevant analytical equipment.
More in detail, the successful candidate will focus on:
During this exciting cross-disciplinary project you will acquire unique expertise and outstanding skills through close contact with academic collaborators.
We offer you a very challenging position in an inspiring multidisciplinary environment. The university offers a dynamic ecosystem with enthusiastic colleagues in which internationalization is an important part of the strategic agenda.
The University of Twente is situated on a green and lively campus with lots of facilities for sports and other activities.
Your first responsibility is to carry out the research, but you are also encouraged to acquire teaching experience. We support you to broaden your knowledge by joining international exchange programs, by participating in national and international conferences and workshops and by visiting industrial companies, research institutes, and universities worldwide.
You are welcome to contact Dr. Mohammad Mehrali : email@example.com for any questions you might have.
