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.

Severely disabled applicants with equal aptitude will be given preferential

The project is concerned with the development and application of a microstructure-resolved simulation tool for Na-ion batteries. As a member of an internationally leading research team in the field of microstructure-resolved simulation of batteries, you will develop a novel framework for Na-ion batteries, which is the first step towards automated material simulation. The physical models will be tightly coupled with data-based methods to accelerate the development of new electrodes and cell concepts.

Your profile:

  • Above-average Master’s degree (or equivalent) in physics, chemistry, engineering sciences, or similar.
  • English language proficiency corresponding to at least C1 level.
  • Great interest in modeling and simulation of physical processes.
  • Very good analytical skills.
  • Very good programming skills in C/C++, Matlab or Python desirable
  • Independent and result-oriented way of working
  • Enjoyment of innovative research

Your responsibilities:

  • Further development of modeling approaches for Na-ion batteries
  • Implementation and extension of a simulation framework in C++
  • Close interdisciplinary collaboration
  • The successful applicant will participate in the graduate school "Electrochemical Energy Storage GS-EES".
  • Presentation of results at international conferences and in scientific journals.
