Qué ofrecemos

The "Thermal Energy Storage" area, at CIC energiGUNE, is seeking for a Postdoctoral researcher to apply for an Individual Fellowship (IF) within Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions (MSCA) of the European Union in materials for thermochemical storage. The candidate will join a multidisciplinary and collaborative team of young researchers.

The position is expected to start during the first half of 2020 and will have a duration of 2 years. The candidate will be hired only if the MSCA Individual Fellowship is granted. Successful candidates will be hosted at CIC energiGUNE during the fellowship.

Description of the proyect:

The project will focus on the development of chemical reactions for thermal energy storage.The storage of heat through reversible chemical reactions is a very promising research field due to the possibility to store great amount of thermal energy in form of chemical energy.This project will explore selected chemical reactions (simple and complex) in a range of temperature few explored so far (120 - 250 °C).The materials that will be used as possible reactants can be oxides, metals and metal alloys with water, hydrogen and carbon dioxide as reacting gases.The research work will follow different approaches to achieve the most efficient reacting behaviour improving the thermodynamic (atomic substitution), kinetic (catalyst addition) and heat transfer properties (hybrid materials).
