PhD Position at the Hamburg University of Technology in the field of supercapacitor modelling available
At the Institute of Polymers and Composites, a 3-year temporary position for a research assistant (salary group TVL-13, full-time employment) is to be filled at the earliest opportunity.
We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated, creative and independent candidates with critical thinking skills. The candidate's previous knowledge should include knowledge of scientific computing, numerical methods and their application in the fields of materials science, chemistry or physics. Programming skills (Python, Fortran or C++) are also welcome. The position can also be filled by scientists who have already obtained a doctorate in one of the fields of study. We are open to different academic backgrounds at the doctoral level, while at the postdoctoral level the demands on the scientific background are more focused.
For the achievement of the goals of the energy turnaround, new types of energy storage, e. g. for the short-term storage of energy from overproduction, triggered by fluctuations in radiation intensity or wind force, are of fundamental importance. Supercapacitors based on hierarchical carbon can be modified very economically in a variety of ways and adapted to the required parameters for optimizing the storage capacity - an important requirement for an electrode material of the future. The influence of carbon hybridisation, porosity, contamination or the electrolyte used on the storage capacity are not sufficiently understood to enable a knowledge-based design. Molecular-dynamic simulations will be used to investigate the underlying fundamental mechanisms of energy storage in supercapacitors and draw conclusions from them that allow an optimized design of the electrode material and electrolyte in a holistic concept and thus enable the matching of the two through a knowledge-based design. Of great interest in this context is also the investigation of membranes based on multi-walled carbon nanotubes for the generation of energy from salt and fresh water. In addition to the electrical properties, the mechanical properties of hierarchical carbon materials should be investigated. The integration of experiments and simulations through close cooperation with the institute's analytical and manufacturing department, using the excellent expertise of the institute in the production of hierarchical carbon structures, is of great importance for this project.
The funding of this project requires student supervision and teaching support.

PhD position Lyon, France: Modelling electro-thermal energy transport in nano-devices for cooling applications
The phD offer is part of an European project gathering theoreticians and experimentalists, all experts in nanoscale thermal and electronic transport. This project tackles innovative non-equilibrium energy management technologies for ultra sensitive infrared detectors, efficient harvesters and compact coolers for information and communication technologies (ICT). At the limits of heat management, the performance of electrothermal energy devices are limited
by near field heat flux and electronic and thermal energy fluxes at the molecular length scales. A theoretical understanding of the individual non-equilibrium energy/particle channels and inter-channel couplings is essential to imagine new and efficient thermal management devices. We plan to address non-linear transport in molecular junctions starting from state-of-the-art theoretical modelling. This project combines synergies in theory, experiment and technology-development covering different fields from chemistry to physics and electronics.
The successful candidate will investigate the electro-thermal transport properties of molecular junctions, in relation with the experimentalist partners of the project, in Germany, United Kingdom and Switzerland. Interactions with researchers working at the CETHIL, INSA Lyon will also be conducted all along the project.
Molecular dynamics (MD), which offers the possibility to probe phonon thermal transport across the molecule, as a function of the junction length. We will also quantify the importance of non-equilibrium effects and compare the out-of-equilibrium conditions to Landauer-Büttiker estimations. Inelastic transport and non-linear response will be included on different levels, in systematic and consistent way using non-equilibrium MD.
The successfull candidate should hold a Master degree in Physics, Chemistry or Material Science. He/she should have a pronounced taste for theoretical modelling, good knowledge of basic programming and very good communication skills in English (oral and written). The successfull candidate will work at the Institute Lumière Matière in Lyon, in the team «Modélisation de la matière Condensée et Interfaces».
Interested candidates should send a resume, marks and ranking in the Master degree, a letter of motivation, at least one letter of recommendation and the names and contact of two scientific referents in a single pdf document to Thomas Niehaus (thomas.niehaus [at] univ-lyon1.fr) and Samy Merabia (samy.merabia [at] univ-lyon1.fr ). Inquiries about the post are welcome. This fully funded position is intended to start early 2018. The consideration of candidates starts immediately until the position is filled.
