Project:                        Polymer Electrolytes (Polymer Synthesis and Its Process Development)
Position:                      Postdoctoral fellow
Institution:                   Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering, North Carolina A&T State University, Greensboro, NC, USA
Application Deadline:  April 30th, 2018
Project duration:          May 2018 - Feb 2019
The Position Description
The solid-state battery is on its way to completely revolutionize the energy storage field. Particularly solid polymer electrolytes (SPEs) are exhibiting tremendous potential in the battery field due to their high processability and versatility. New fabrication processes are needed in order to overcome current challenges which are facing SPEs. You will establish new polymer chemistries as well as new polymer fabrication processes to advance the properties of our electrolyte.
* A doctorate in a relevant discipline area, such as organic and/or polymer chemistry, material science and chemical engineering.
* Demonstrated ability to conduct innovative research in chemistry and/or chemical engineering (polymer, organic, material science).
* Demonstrated experience with various polymer and thin film fabrication techniques.
* Demonstrated experience in general characterization techniques, such as SEM, EDS, and FT-IR.
* Experience with and understanding of material characterization techniques (rheology, TGA, DSC, tensile, flexural, DMTA, DMA).
* Any energy storage materials for battery, supercapacitor or others are not required for this position but plus.
How to Apply: Please send your recent updated CV to Prof. Cho including a complete list of your publications and at least three names of                             recommendation providers.
