Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Solid state Electrochemistry
Position as postdoctoral research fellow is available at University of Oslo – Department of Chemistry/Centre for Materials Science and Nanotechnology
The fellowship period is 2 years. Within the framework of the position duties may be assigned. Starting date no later than 15.11.2016. No one can be appointed for more than one specified period at the same institution.
Job description/Project description:
The project, Composite Interconnects and nanostructured Electrodes for PROton conducting membrane reactors (CIEPRO), aims to establish the science and technology for cost-effective fabrication of robust ceramic proton conducting ceramic cells for steam methane reforming. The work of this project will largely take place on the nanoscale as the interaction between the proton conducting ceramic, Y-doped BaZrO3, and metallic Ni, glass-ceramic composites and steels is critical for the overall performance. The scientific focus will be to understand and improve these interfaces.
CIEPRO is an Innovation project for the industrial sector. It is coordinated by Coorstek Membrane Sciences AS and financed through the "Nano2021" program at the Research Council of Norway. SINTEF Materials Chemistry and University of Oslo Functional Inorganic Materials (FERMiO) are active partners in addition to the coordinator.
Please remember that all documents should be in English or a Scandinavian language.
In accordance with the University of Oslo's equal opportunities policy, we invite applications from all interested individuals regardless of gender or ethnicity.
UiO has an agreement for all employees, aiming to secure rights to research results a.o.
