Postdoctoral in In-situ Transmission Electron Microscopy on Energy Materials, Denmark 2012

DTU Energy Conversion and Storage is a new DTU institute holding world leading competences within the research and development of technologies for sustainable energy conversion and storage. Among these are fuel and electrolysis cells (for instance SOFC, SOEC, PEMs, solar cells and batteries. In addition we have world-class activities on a number of related topics exploiting functional ceramics: oxygen and hydrogen separation membranes, electrochemical flue gas purification and magnetic refrigeration. Key competencies include ceramic processing, solid state electrochemistry and advanced materials characterization. To strengthen our activities in the Imaging and Structural Analysis Program we are seeking an outstanding Postdoc to initiate activities within in-situ transmission electron microscopy analysis of a variety of new energy materials. In combination with structural, crystallographic and electrochemical investigations, electron microscopy analysis is a crucial technique for understanding and modeling the behavior of new multiphase energy materials.
