Dear Colleagues,

     We are currently seeking to hire two postdoctoral research 
associates with expertise in utilizing neutron scattering techniques to 
investigate the crystal structure and ionic dynamics of energy materials 
(e.g., Li/Na-ion cathodes). Candidates with a strong interest in neutron 
scattering techniques and research experience in energy materials (e.g. 
Li/Na-ion battery materials or relatedmaterials) are especially 
encouraged to apply. The appointment is for a two-year term with the 
possibility for extension and promotion. We offer a competitive salary, 
access to state-of-the-art research resources, and a stimulating 
research environment. The post-doctoral research will be based at Peking 
University Shenzhen Graduate School (Shenzhen, China).

*R**esearch field**s**:*

- Research on the structural characteristics of energy materials, 
including battery materials, hydrogen storage materials, thermoelectric 
materials, etc.

- Research on the formation mechanism and real-time evolutions of 
multiphase structures for Li/Na-ion battery materials.

- Application and development of in-situ/operando neutron 
characterization techniques; Design and construction of neutron 
instruments for investigating the structure of energy materials at 
neutron facilities.

*Qualification requirements:*

- Applicants should have or be close to completing a Ph.D. no more than 
three years before the last date for application.

- Educational background in materials science, condensed matter 
physics, or physical chemistry, among others.

- Several high-level scientific articles published in the corresponding 
research field.

- Experience in neutron/X-ray scattering techniques or energy materials.

- Proficiency in effective oral and written communication in English.


- Development of in-operando electrochemical neutron diffraction 
platform and other relevant neutron scattering techniques to investigate 
Li/Na-ion batteries.

- Conducting neutron/X-ray scattering experiments and analyzing data.

- Publishing scientific articles and presenting results at national or 
international meetings.

For further information about the position please contact Prof. Xiao at 
y.xiao at pku.edu.cn.This position will remain open until qualified 
candidates are identified or hired.Please forward this message to 
potential candidates. Thank you in advance.

Best regards,



Prof. Yinguo Xiao
