Postdoctoral fellowship in 2D Energy Storage materials

School of Engineering Sciences in Chemistry, Biotechnology and Health at KTH

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

The division of Fibre- and Polymer Technology is announcing for a postdoc position who will work and conduct research in Hamedi Lab.

This position is located at the “School of Engineering Sciences in Chemistry, Biotechnology and Health” (CBH) at KTH main campus. CBH is one of the five schools of KTH and a strong constellation for research and education in the broader areas of health, environment, energy and materials.

Job description

Next-generation energy storage materials are a necessity for quickly moving towards a fossil free future for humanity. Join us in contributing to this important field by doing research on new materials and form factors for batteries.

You will develop and use new generation of nanocomposites containing 1D materials such as nanocelulose and CNTs, and two-dimensional (2D) materials, including MXenes and 2D TMDCs for batteries and supercapacitors. The batteries will be fabricated using dispersions of these 2D materials and methods of self-assembly to achieve new form factors and optimised nanostructure in the electrodes.

You will also work with characterisation of nanomaterials using various techniques including SEM, TEM, AFM, XRD, and evaluate battery characteristics. In addition to laboratory work, the position also requires the writing of reports.

What we offer

  • A position at a leading technical university that generates knowledge and skills for a sustainable future
  • Engaged and ambitious colleagues along with a creative, international and dynamic working environment
  • Works in Stockholm, in close proximity to nature
  • Help to relocate and be settled in Sweden and at KTH
