Overview

One PhD Scholarship will be provided to support Professor Guoxiu Wang’s Discovery Project (DP200101249: Lithium-rich cathode materials for high-energy lithium-ion batteries). The successful applicant will be supervised by Prof. Wang and co-supervised by Dr. Bing Sun in the Centre for Clean Energy Technology (CCET) in Faculty of Science. CCET focuses on the development of efficient devices for energy harvesting, storage, and conversion. Taking a rational approach, we combine first principles calculation and modelling, novel materials architecture design and synthesis, and system integration in our teaching and research practice. We adapt our research activities to the global low-carbon energy context and aim to achieve innovations and breakthroughs in zero-emission energies. http://www.uts.edu.au/research-and-teaching/our-research/centre-clean-energy-technology
