OPEN POSITION - POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHER Development of Solar Rechargeable Redox Flow Batteries

IMDEA EnergyPresentation on Horizon Europe by the European Commission - EFMC

OFFER DESCRIPTION

The IMDEA Energy Institute is a Maria de Maeztu Center of Excellence with the mission of developing world-class R&D in the field of clean and renewable energy technologies. The Institute aims at contributing to the establishment of a sustainable energy system with a high degree of decarbonisation, economically competitive and securing energy supply (www.energy.imdea.org).

IMDEA Energía is opening a Postdoctoral Scientist Position for the Electrochemical Processes Unit associated to a European project (Call: H2020-FETPROACT-2020-2) lead by Dr. Rebeca Marcilla. This project, entitled “Multi-Electron Processes for Light Driven Electrodes and Electrolytes in Conversion and Storage of Solar Energy”, merges solar-powered energy storage with multi-charge transfer capability. This open Postdoctoral Position will be dedicated to the Development of Solar Rechargeable Redox Flow Batteries, a new type of devices that integrate solar energy conversion and electrochemical storage.
