Description of the work
The candidate will develop all-solid-state Li-ion batteries based on thin films fully integrated in Silicon technology. The work is part of the European Project SiNERGY (Silicon friendly materials and device solutions for microenergy applications) dealing with the implementation of energy harvesters and batteries for powering nodes of wireless sensor networks.
In particular, we look for a materials researcher with experience in materials for Li-ion batteries. The work will be focused on thin film growth by PLD and electrochemical characterization of the components and devices. Large-area PLD deposition with combinatorial capability will allow depositing compositional maps for materials searching.
We offer a one-year contract with possibility of extension to two years. The labs are located in Barcelona (Spain) and the salary will be fixed according to the experience of the candidate.
