  Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and Professor Eva Pellicer have 2 vacancies for 2 PhD students in the scope of the NICKEFFECT project. Check below for more information.   TOPIC: Nickel-based coatings with tunable porosity for energy conversion applications NICKEFFECT, a new project co-funded by the European Commission's Horizon Europe programme, aims to develop novel nickel-based coating materials to replace the scarce and costly platinum while ensuring high efficiency in key applications. A PhD position is available at the “Group of Smart Nanoengineered Materials, Nanomechanics and Nanomagnetism (Gnm3 )” of the Physics Department at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB). We are looking for a highly motivated candidate of any nationality that will work on the production of nickel-based coatings with tailored porosity by electrochemical means. The coatings will be thoroughly characterized by different techniques to assess their suitability for the target application, namely water electrolysis and proton-exchange membrane fuel cell. The thesis will be carried out under joint supervision between UAB and...
