PhD Scholarship in energy storage materials for concentrating solar thermal power





This Research-only PhD is directed towards developing high temperature materials that store thermochemical energy for large-scale solar thermal plants so they can operate 24/7. Metal hydrides can store up to 20 times more thermal energy than current generation molten salt technology. New materials will be synthesised by mechanochemical, gas-solid, and wet-chemical methods. The thermochemical properties of these materials (i.e. enthalpy and entropy) will be determined and they will be tested in new prototype test facilities for gas-solid reactions during thermal cycling, simulating a full-scale solar facility. The technology will be directed towards up-scaling to realise multi-kg test beds. The PhD will be conducted within the Fuels and Energy Technology Institute (FETI) at Curtin University, which is equipped with an array of world-class research equipment and facilities. You will specialise in materials chemistry, X-ray diffraction, electron microscopy, and other characterisation techniques. A 6-month visit to an overseas laboratory will be strongly encouraged during the PhD.

PhD Scholarship in solid-state ion conductors for next-generation batteries





This Research-only PhD is directed towards designing, synthesising, and characterising new ionic conductors to be used as solid-state electrolytes in next-generation batteries. New boron-based inorganic compounds will be synthesised by wet-chemical approaches under inert gas conditions (Schlenk techniques). i.e. MgB10H10 and ZnB12H12. The materials will be characterised to determine their crystal structure, material properties, and ion conductivity. The PhD will be conducted within the Fuels and Energy Technology Institute (FETI) at Curtin University, which is equipped with an array of world-class research equipment and facilities. You will specialise in materials chemistry, X-ray diffraction, electron microscopy, and other characterisation techniques. A 6-month visit to an overseas laboratory will be strongly encouraged during the PhD.
