The Electrochemical Systems Research Laboratory, part of the Institute for Sustainable Energy and the Environment at Ohio University, is seeking talented and motivated students for its Ph.D. program in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. Available projects include development of lithium-ion battery materials and advanced (beyond lithium) battery chemistries, electrochemical synthesis of materials, including those used for energy storage and for construction applications, and electrochemical processes related to environmental remediation. Successful applicants will possess a B.S. degree in chemical engineering or a closely related field, and will be motivated to continue graduate work in the area on the research programs discussed above. In additiona to laboratory work, graduate students in the Electrochemical Systems Research Laboratory complete one semester of teaching assistant duties, present at national and international conferences, and take lead authorship duties on peer-reviewed publications. Depending on eligibility, graduate students may be considered for Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need (GAANN) funding, with the designation of GAANN Fellow.
