Scholarships are available for PhD candidates to contribute to the development of advanced energy storage systems in a multidisciplinary research team. With the rapid increase in energy demand and potential drastic effects of climate change there is a urgent need for developing effective energy storage systems to finally enable the large scale deployment of renewable energies (e.g. solar) and the implementation of clean transportation systems.
The role: The aim of this project is to develop the basis for the emergence of a novel class of material architectures that would allow the design of modern energy storage systems, fuel cells and electrolysers capable of meeting an ever increasing demand in clean and efficient energy technologies. The successful applicants will have the opportunity to work on a highly topical area and within a world-class research team. The studies are to be conducted at the School of Chemical Engineering at the University of New South Wales in Sydney.
The person: -Applicants should have at least a first class BSc Honours degree (or equivalent) in chemistry, materials science, polymer chemistry and/or preparation of inorganic nanoparticles, or a related field. -Applicants who have publications and research experience at Master level are preferred. - Applicants with degrees from a reputable University ( top 400 in the world - based on QS ranking or similar) are preferred. -Consideration will also be given to applicants who do not meet all the criteria above but are Australian citizens or Australian permanent residents. International students with a Master degree from a reputable university are also encouraged to apply.
