Available PhD position in our team!

Come work with us as a PhD student in Advanced Materials Technology and help us developing new methods for the fabrication of nanomaterials and exploring their applications in energy storage.

There is currently a vacancy for a PhD position at the Department of Mechanical, Electrical Chemical engineering (MEK) at the Faculty of Technology, Art and Design (TKD), in the field of Advanced Materials Technology, related to the project “Micromanufacturing and Energy Materials”. The PhD candidate will be part of the research group Mechanical, Mechatronics and Materials Technology (M3T), as well as GreenMet – OsloMet Green Energy Laboratory. The position is for a period of three years, and the person appointed should preferably take up the position as soon as possible.

The PhD project “Micromanufacturing and Energy Materials” has two main goals:

  1. Researching, and developing techniques to modify the submicron-structure of materials, including microfabrication, surface treatment and deposition, based on electrospray/electrospinning.
  1. Application of these techniques to the synthesis of nanocomposite materials for use in energy storage (batteries, e.g. polymer-ceramic nanocomposites for solid-state electrolytes).

Are you interested, or know someone who might be?

Apply here by 30th May 2024.

GrønnMet: OsloMet’s Green Energy Lab

Our Mechanical Engineering Team at OsloMet – Oslo Metropolitan University has secured strategic funding for the GrønnMet project.

GrønnMet serves as a central hub for interdisciplinary research collaboration and knowledge dissemination in the field of green energy. Its mission is to bring together academics, industry professionals, and STEM students, fostering innovation and sustainable solutions.

A standout feature of GrønnMet is the GreenVirtualSpace – an immersive digital platform that replicates physical laboratory settings. This cutting-edge innovation is particularly advantageous for the space-constrained at Pilestredet 35 campus. Researchers and users can now conduct experiments, tests, and studies without relying on traditional physical tools or facilities.

GrønnMet represents a leap forward in green energy research and education. As we celebrate this achievement, we look forward to the positive impact it will have on our community and the broader field of sustainable energy.
