Academic employee (m/f/d) (Postdoc) for Post-Lithium-Batteries modeling
There is an open position within the Cluster of Excellence “Post Lithium Storage (POLiS)” for
Academic employee (m/f/d) (Postdoc) for Post-Lithium- Batteries modeling
Within your project, you develop a theory of non-equilibrium thermodynamics for post-lithium batteries on the basis of existing theoretical approaches, which allows a stronger multiscale coupling to both atomistic and larger scales. The project is embedded in a cross-cutting project of the Cluster of Excellence that aims at developing a continuous simulation chain from the atomistic to the cellular scale of post-lithium batteries. The stronger coupling of continuum theories describing the electrode and cell scale and atomistic theories is a crucial step for establishing an ab initio simulation of cell concepts and will help to decisively accelerate the safe and cycling stable design of novel post-lithium batteries.
Above-average scientific university degree in physics, mathematics, engineering, chemistry or similar (Diploma/Master's degree)
PhD in natural or engineering sciences
English language proficiency corresponding to at least C1 level
Professional experience in at least one of the following areas: Mathematical modeling, non-equilibrium thermodynamics, density functional theory
Very good analytical skills
Experience in programming skills with Matlab, Python, or C/C++
Independent and result-oriented way of working
Enjoyment of innovative research
Further development of modeling approaches for Post-Lithium-Batteries
Modeling based on a free energy functional and implementation of the simulation
Close interdisciplinary collaboration
Presentation of results at international conferences and in scientific journals
