  • Organisation/Company: Université de Pau et des Pays de l Adour
  • Research Field: Chemistry › Applied chemistry Chemistry › Physical chemistry
  • Researcher Profile: Recognised Researcher (R2)
  • Application Deadline: 30/08/2022 00:00 - Europe/Brussels
  • Location: France › Lacq
  • Type Of Contract: Temporary
  • Job Status: Full-time
  • Hours Per Week: 35
  • Offer Starting Date: 01/11/2022
  • Context

    The position is part of the “RAISE 2024” (towaRd All solId State battery in 2024), a five years project funded by the E2S (Energy Environment Solutions) Initiative (https: // The RAISE2024 project aims at developing polymer based solid-state batteries up to a Technology Readiness Level 6 in close partnership with three academic laboratories, IPREM (Institute of Analytical Sciences and Physical Chemistry for the Environment and Materials - https: //, IPRA-DMEX (Multidisciplinary Institute for Applied Research) and PDP (research center Pau Public Law) as well as two major international companies, Arkema France and SAFT. The main objective of the project is to develop an advanced battery system based on solid electrolytes, which represents a new field in the rechargeable battery domain. Electric vehicles and renewable energy storage are the applications targeted, with safety, high energy density, no self-discharge, a long stability/cycle life, easily scalable, low cost as main requirements.


    The postdoc candidate will be in charge of the study of the degradation behaviour of formulations for solid-state batteries based on Lithium ion- conductive polymers. In close collaboration with IPREM in charge of the morphological, structural and physico-chemical characterization (SEM, Auger Electron Spectroscopy, XPS) of the different materials and the polymer interfaces, the candidate will also highly participate to the evaluation of material properties in terms of ionic conductivity, electrochemical stability, dendrite mitigation and mechanical properties. An attempt to develop a mechanism of degradation based on the components and to overcome the phenomenom is also asked.
