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 and fuel cells capable of meeting an ever increasing demand in clean and efficient energy technologies. The successful applicant will have the opportunity to work on a highly topical area and within a world-class research team. The study is to be conducted at the School of Chemistry at the University of Sydney.
The person: Applicants awarded a first class BSc Honours degree (or equivalent- Master degree preferable) in chemistry, materials science, polymer chemistry and/or preparation of inorganic nanoparticles, or a related field. Consideration will also be given to applicants who do not have an Honours degree, but have been working in the field for at least 2 years. The scholarship is available to Australian citizens, Australian permanent residents. International students with a Master degree from a reputable university (ranked in the top 400 in the world) are also encouraged to apply.
