We are looking for a motivated student who can start around Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 to work on work on Sodium and Potassium-ion battery cathode materials. The available position is funded by Department of Energy EPSCoR program.

Ph.D. student will work on the chemo-mechanics of cathode material in Na-ion and K-ion batteries. Detailed project descriptions and planning will be undertaken directly with the successful candidate. The student will develop exceptional skills and expertise in the areas of electrochemistry, defect chemistry, mechanics of materials, and material fabrication during his/her studies. The student will learn in situ curvature interferometry and MOS systems to monitor stress evolution in the cathode materials. The student will also work on continuum models to predict stress generation in the electrode particles.

The selected candidate will present their work at international conferences such as AlCHE and ECS. The candidate will also have opportunities to closely work with scientists at Pacific Northwestern National Laboratory.
