Enabling Next-generation Rechargeable Aluminium-ion Batteries

This Earmarked Scholarship project is aligned with a recently awarded Category 1 research grant. It offers you the opportunity to work with leading researchers and contribute to large projects of national significance.

Supervisor – Professor Michael Yuc.yu@uq.edu.au

This project aims to develop a new generation of high performance and low-cost cathode materials for rechargeable aluminium ion batteries. To address the low capacity issue of current cathodes, this project anticipates generating new knowledge in the material design of novel graphene materials. Expected outcomes of this project include industrial adaptable manufacturing processing and advanced materials for aluminium ion batteries.

Preferred educational background

Applications will be judged on a competitive basis taking into account the applicant's previous academic record, publication record, honours and awards, and employment history.

A working knowledge of materials science or chemistry would be of benefit to someone working on this project.

A background or knowledge of energy storage research is highly desirable.

*The successful candidate must commence by Research Quarter 1, 2022. You should apply at least 3 months prior to the research quarter commencement date. International applicants may need to apply much earlier for visa reasons.
