The Water-Energy Nexus Group is looking for PhD students (for 2021 Spring or 2021 Fall) in the area of clean energy storage (lithium-ion batteries and beyond) and water-energy nexus (self-cleaning polymer, heavy metal/bacteria/POPs removal etc.) at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
The general areas of interest are of electrode material synthesis, novel lithium-based batteries including but not limited to Li-ion, Li-S, and Li-metal batteries, water/air purification and self-cleaning coatings, etc. The potential students will perform the PhD projects in one or more of the following areas: Lithium-ion batteries, Electrochemistry analysis, Nano-materials synthesis and characterization, In-situ TEM observation, bacteria/POPs/chemicals removal, self-cleaning, etc. The candidate may do some experiments at other universities and national labs.
To apply please send a CV to Prof. Niu at email@example.com.
