The postdoctoral researcher's work will focus on creating new two-dimensional (2D) oxide/carbon heterostructures for electrodes in energy storage devices. This research project will involve synthesis, characterization and electrochemical study with the aim to answer specific scientific questions related to structure and chemistry of 2D heterostructures as well as interactions between synthesized materials and electrochemically cycled ions, contributing to the development of future high performing electrochemical energy storage systems. Characterization of 2D heterostructures will involve collaboration with members of the Energy Frontiers Research Center for Mesoscale Transport Properties at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL).
A Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering or related fields and experience in synthesis, characterization and electrochemical testing of functional inorganic materials.
The applicant will be expected to work diligently and efficiently, contribute to the project intellectually, lead in writing scholarly papers and grant proposals, publish research results in appropriate refereed journals, engage in the EFRC activities in accordance with the Center mission, maintain equipment in the laboratory and mentor junior group members.
Other duties as assigned.
