PhD position in characterizing and modeling battery materials

One or two positions are available for a student to undertake a fully funded Ph.D. in Engineering at Louisiana Tech University understanding the detailed structure of the complicated heterogeneous materials in lithium ion batteries. Expected start date is Sept. or Nov. of 2021.


  • B.S. in Engineering (Chemistry or Physics backgrounds are also suitable).
  • Meet graduate school TOEFL/IELTS scores
  • Competitive GRE
  • An interest in multi-disciplinary research in materials


Research in the lab takes place at the junction of Materials Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, and Physics. We undertake projects trying to understand the structure and chemical behavior of modern materials, which are often disordered and/or nanostructured and therefore resistive to many characterization techniques. What sets us apart from many other research groups is expertise in advanced solids NMR spectroscopy, which allows us to provide information that many other techniques cannot. We study any modern materials involved in promising new applications, with a particular emphasis on cathodes and anodes from litihium ion batteries.  Work generally involves making materials, NMR spectroscopic measurements, and modelling with DFT or other computational techniques.
