There is an open position within the Cluster of Excellence “Post Lithium Storage (POLiS)” for

Academic employee (m/f/d)
(Postdoc)

Ulm University with its more than 10,000 students offers varied professional tasks in a highly innovative research, teaching and work environment, at the same time facilitating the reconciliation of work and family in many ways.

We seek to increase the proportion of women in research and teaching and particularly encourages qualified female scientists to apply for this position.

As a rule, full-time positions can be split.

Severely disabled applicants with equal aptitude will be given preferential
consideration.

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.

Your profile:

  • 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

Your responsibilities:

  • 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
