Understanding Materials Interfaces in Systems for the Energy Transition [‌Info Sheet - InFUSE 2022]

Up to 10 positions are available. We welcome applications from candidates for October 2022 entry to join the multidisciplinary project InFUSE whose aim is to study key material and fluid interfaces across a range of application areas with direct impact on the energy transition. There are a range of projects available within the research programme, and successful applicants will choose a project following discussions with the programme team and supervisors. Informal enquiries and requests for additional information for these posts can be made to Dr. Ronny Pini.

Any queries regarding the application process should be directed to Bhavna Patel or Amy Nommeots-Nomm.
