Become a part of a research team who has developed the world first
rechargeable cement-based batteries. When integrated in the concrete elements
of buildings, these batteries can be powered by solar energy and enable self-
powered buildings in e.g. remote areas. As a postdoc, you will have the
opportunity to improve these batteries and make them charged by organic
This is a two-year position in a transdisciplinary team. You will spend the
first year at Building Materials research group, Department of Architecture
and Civil Engineering. Your second year will be at Ergang Wang's group,
Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. This arrangment offers
excellent opportunities to develop your academic skills and networks, whilst
scientifically contributing to the cutting-edge technologies for energy saving
Your major responsibility as a postdoctoral fellow is to pursue your research
