The Energy Storage Group is looking for PhD students 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.
The qualified candidates will be nominated to apply two PhD fellowships: the Dean’s Doctoral Fellowships and CEAS Doctoral Fellowships for 2019. The Dean’s PhD Fellowship includes one-year TA position which requires your English qualification such as the Speaking score of TOEFL over 23 or passing the internal test. Both programs are designed to attract high quality students to join the PhD in Engineering program. The application deadline for both programs is March 8, 2019.
The application package for your part includes: a) your CV, b) transcript, c) GRE scores, and d) one letter of recommendation from someone other than the CEAS faculty sponsor.
To apply please send a CV to Prof. Niu at email@example.com.
