The Wolfson Department of Chemical Engineering

Field of Research
The focus of the research in Prof. Dario Dekel’s group is on electrochemical technologies based on ion conducting membranes. The tremendous progress in AEM development in recent years may allow anion-exchange membrane fuel cells (AEMFCs) to be an alternative energy source for vehicles in the near future. Therefore, basic understanding and control of the ionomer’s chemical structure, conductivity and chemical stability is of greatest importance for the future development of these advanced energy devices. Developing AEMFCs with high efficiency and performance stability offers a wide field of open questions and challenges from organic chemistry, chemical engineering, catalysis and energy research.

Opportunities are offered to join the PhD and Postdoctoral positions in the TEEM group. Candidates will work on the synthesis and characterization of anion exchange membranes (AEMs), based on anion conducting polymers (ionomers).
Extraordinary and self-motivated PhD candidates are encouraged to submit a CV and a copy of their transcripts.
Postdoctoral candidates are expected to have expertise in either polymer chemistry, organic materials science, electrochemistry, synthetic organic chemistry. Prior experience in fuel cells (AEMFCs) is an advantage. Interested applicants are encouraged to submit a cover letter, CV, and any other relevant information, e.g., a sample publication and reference letters.
