RWTH Aachen - Institute of Inorganic Chemistry

Our research is devoted to the controlled synthesis, the characterization and to application scenarios of nanostructured materials with electro- and biofunctional properties. This advertised position is settled within the research interests of the Post graduate program "Integrated Energy Supply Modules for Roadbound E-Mobility", in short "mobilEM". The program is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and explores the physical foundations of electro-chemical energy storage and its combination with novel fuel-operated range extender units. Fuel-operated range extenders allow a reasonable dimensioning of the electrical energy storage system size and its thermal conditioning. Research within this program is highly interdisciplinary. Moreover, special qualification programs and lecture series allow gaining deeper insights of the scientific questions within this research topic.
