PhD position in Electrochemical Energy Storage and Conversion in Zürich

Studierende finden an der ETH Zürich ein Umfeld, das eigenständiges Denken fördert, Forschende ein Klima, das zu Spitzenleistungen inspiriert.


100%, Zurich, fixed-term

Our group studies fundamental processes in solutions, materials, and at the electrode-electrolyte interfaces using a combination of various in-situ and ex-situ characterization techniques coupled with detailed electrochemical studies. We then apply this fundamental knowledge to the design of new battery materials, electrocatalysts, and electrolytes that can deliver improved performance (i.e., charging times, energy, capacity, cycling stability), cost, efficiency, and safety.

Job description

This full-time position offers students an excellent opportunity to delve into energy science and gain deep fundamental knowledge about electrochemical processes. You will join an inclusive, diverse, and supportive working environment that praises scientific curiosity and creativity. The tentative starting date is January 2023 or later.
