Post-Doc position (2 years)
Institute of Power Engineering – Research Institute in Warsaw, Poland is offering Post-Doc position (2 years) in the field of Effect of microstructure of ionic conductors on generation of hydrogen in solid oxide electrochemical cells (SOC)
In frame of the project SONATA “Experimental and numerical studies of the effect of microstructure of ionic conductors on generation of hydrogen in solid oxide electrochemical cells (SOC)” financed by the National Science Centre (Poland), the research is focused on conducting a series of experimental studies on SOC degradation in the electrolysis mode in transient operating states, application of an advanced numerical model in the next stage of structure optimization to increase the performance of SOC cells, taking into account the dynamic operating states in the electrolysis mode. The responsibility of Post-Doc is to participate in the laboratory work concerning testing of SOC of varied microstructures, interpretation of the outcomes, especially the obtained current-voltage characteristics and
impedance spectra (EIS), correlating the microstructure effect on SOC performance, and defining the guidelines for further modifications and improvements (lowering the voltage at a given current load of SOE). The Post-Doc will process the data obtained under laboratory conditions to collaborate with other members of the team, who will use those for validation of numerical models they create within the project. Finally, the task is to participate in the preparatrion of papers summarising the project results and their dissemination.
