Publish Date: Aug 09, 2016

Deadline: Aug 24, 2016

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.


The successful candidate should hold a PhD or equivalent (corresponding to a Norwegian doctoral degree) in inorganic, physical, materials chemistry or physics, more specific high temperature solid state physics/chemistry, preferably with specialization within one or several of the fields high temperature corrosion, additive manufacturing, solid state electrochemistry, or surface science/modifications.

The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences has a strategic ambition of being a leading research faculty. Candidates for these fellowships will be selected in accordance with this, and expected to be in the upper segment of their class with respect to academic credentials

Personal suitability and co-operation skills will receive special attention in the selection process. Applicants may be called in for an interview.
