Project Title- Organic Redox Electrolytes for Redox Flow Batteries
Location- IMDEA Energy Institute, Madrid, Spain
Eligibility/Qualification- PhD in relevant discipline
Job/Position Description- The Electrochemical Processes Unit of IMDEA Energía is opening a Postdoctoral Scientist Position associated to the ERC Consolidator Grant awarded to Dr. Rebeca Marcilla. This project, entitled Membrane-Free redox Flow Batteries (MFreeB), proposes to remove the problematic ion-exchange membrane of redox flow batteries by developing a disruptive, versatile and scalable battery concept that relies on the immiscibility of two redox electrolytes. Moreover, cheap, abundant and environmental-friendly organic molecules will replace the harmful vanadium active species. This open Postdoctoral Position will be dedicated to investigate the Organic Redox Electrolytes for Redox Flow Batteries.
