PhD scholarship for development and processing of n-type oxide thermoelectric materials Print E-mail
Written by Hoang Quoc Khanh   
Thursday, 13 January 2011 17:54

Vacancies

The Fuel Cells and Solid State Chemistry Division at Risø DTU is seeking a PhD student to develop and process new types of oxide thermoelectric materials for use in conversion of heat into electricity.
 
Thermoelectric power conversion is a promising technology for waste heat recovery in a broad variety of applications, e.g. transportation, building and industry. A thermoelectric device works by converting a certain temperature difference into an electric potential to generate power.
 
You will be part of a large project which aim to develop and demonstrate high-temperature efficient thermoelectric oxide modules integrated in a converter system.

This will take place at the international front line in collaboration between Risø DTU and four leading laboratories in Denmark, Japan and the US, while industry participation ensures strong links to both technology providers and end-users.
 
The project
A major challenge in thermoelectric materials development is to manipulate the structure and physical properties in order to improve thermoelectric power, electrical conductivity and simultaneously reduce thermal conductivity. The project is focussed on the development of novel thermoelectric oxide materials (especially n-type) such as ZnO doped materials (ZnO:Al,Ga) with nanoinclusion, characterisation techniques of thermoelectric materials and the integration of these materials in a thermoelectric module for high temperature applications. 
 
Qualifications

  • Master’s degree in chemistry, physics, materials science or similar
  • Knowledge in synthesis of inorganic materials preferably oxides
  • Prior knowledge in the area of thermoelectricity is beneficial
  • Experience with experimental methods for materials processing and characterization
  • Ability to work independently, to plan and carry out complicated tasks, and to be a part of a large, dynamical group
  • Good communication skills in English, both written and spoken 

We offer
We offer an exciting and challenging job in an international environment.
Good possibilities for professional and personal growth.
A family friendly organisation with flexible working hours.
 
Approval and Enrolment 
The scholarships for the PhD degree are subject to academic approval, and the candidates will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes of DTU. For information about the general requirements for enrolment and the general planning of the scholarship studies, please see theDTU PhD Guide.

Salary and appointment terms
The salary and appointment terms are consistent with the current rules for PhD degree students. The period of employment is 3 years.
 
Application
We must have your online application by 15 february 2011. Please open the link "apply for this job online", fill in the application form and attach the following documents;

a) A letter motivating the application (cover letter)
b) Curriculum vitae 
c) Grade transcripts and BSc/MSc diploma
d) Conversion of grade averages to Danish grades (see guidelines and excel spreadsheet for the conversion here). 

Candidates may apply prior to obtaining their master's degree, but cannot begin before having received it.

All interested candidates irrespective of age, gender, race, inability, religion or ethnic background are encouraged to apply.

This will take place at the international front line in collaboration between Risø DTU and four leading laboratories in Denmark, Japan and the US, while industry participation ensures strong links to both technology providers and end-users.
 
The project
A major challenge in thermoelectric materials development is to combine a number of materials belonging to different families of materials together in order to improve the conversion efficiency and to expand the working temperature range of the thermoelectric device. The project is focussed on the construction and optimization of p- and n-type segments over a broad temperature range by graded materials. This will be done in order to improve the so-called compatibility factor between the materials in each leg. The materials are chosen among the best of state-of-the-art materials and the novel developed thermoelectric oxides.
