Job Description

  • Research team has developed “precisely engineered strong 3D graphene foam structure” which can open up other research directions upto real life applications in strong collaboration with world leading industries.
  • The successful candidates will be conducting their high impact research in
    1. Nanoscale engineering of 3D graphene foam and its supercapacitor application under extreme working conditions which battery cannot cover. New applications in extreme environments such as short run memory and pressure gauges in downhole environment, implantable medical devices, cold temperature aerospace applications and IoT devices etc. This project is in collaboration with National institute and industries (e.g. ST Engineering and DSO, etc)
    2. Hybrid nano-composite 3D foam synthesis for high Energy Battery. New battery development with high energy and power densities for automotive, satellite, train & microgrid applications. Targeting new energy conversion/storage application.


  • Candidates must hold an internationally-recognized PhD degree (or equivalent)
  • preferably in electrochemistry, material science, Nanoscience, or equivalent.
  • The candidate should have a proven track record of excellence in experimental research.
  • Candidates with experience in energy storage applications (supercapacitors/batteries), characterization and material synthesis are highly encouraged to apply.
