Postdoctoral Researcher in Atomistic and DFT Modelling of Lithium Batteries

University of Bath - Chemistry

An EPSRC-funded postdoctoral research position is available in the area of advanced computer modelling of lithium battery materials within the groups of Professor Saiful Islam and Dr Ben Morgan at the University of Bath.

The research programme will apply atomistic and ab initio techniques in the study of defect, transport, and surface/interface properties of lithium battery materials. Project areas will include ion intercalation at electrode surfaces and effects of grain boundaries using density functional theory (DFT), potentials-based molecular dynamics, and cluster-expansion based Monte Carlo techniques.

This project forms part of the large interdisciplinary Multi-Scale Modelling effort on lithium batteries within the new Faraday Institution with strong links to continuum modelling work, and to experimental structural and electrochemical studies. Please view the following link for further information on the project:

Previous experience in computational materials science and a track record of peer-reviewed publications are essential.

This post is available on a full-time, fixed-term basis until 31 December 2020.
