At TU Delft, we currently have an opening for a 2-year postdoc to work in the field of capacitive deionization (CDI) in close collaboration with Avsalt AB, a Swedish startup company in this field.
This project is aimed at developing new strategies to induce ion-selectivity in flow-by CDI devices with multiple flow channels (mCDI). Specifically, we will look at ways to tailor the electrode properties at the microscopic level such to induce strong ion-specific transport through the material, with the ultimate goals of selectively removing specific ions from waste-water streams. These goals will be achieved through experiments, combined with molecular dynamics simulations to develop a molecular-level understanding of ion-specific adsorption and diffusion in porous electrodes.
The ideal candidate has experience with experimental CDI, battery, or supercapacitor research, and has hands-on knowledge of molecular dynamics simulations.
Interested candidates can contact Remco Hartkamp (email@example.com) and send along their CV. The position will be filled as soon as a suitable candidate is found.
