DTU Energy at the Technical University of Denmark, DTU, invites applications for a 2-year postdoc position in the area of computational methods for battery materials. The project, which is aligned with the Department’s focus area on battery materials and technologies, is funded by the Villum foundation and the European Union through the H2020 FET Open project Salbage.
The Salbage project aims at developing a new Sulfur-Aluminium Battery with an Advanced Polymeric Gel Electrolyte, which would represent a revolutionary breakthrough in the energy storage market due to the utilization of highly available raw materials for the anode and the cathode in combination with a safe electrolyte.
The postdoc position involves collaboration with international academic partners, e.g. the groups of Prof. Yang Shao-Horn at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Prof. Ángel Rubio at the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg.
We have recently implemented several computational tools
The successful candidate will work on the further development and testing of these techniques and on the implementation of new ones, such us
These tasks will be prioritize according to the background and skills of the selected candidate.
The project will be carried out in close collaboration with experimental groups. The project will be also linked to other computational projects working on screening of materials for lithium-ion and aluminium-sulfur batteries.
Candidates should have a PhD degree in computational/theoretical physics, chemistry or materials science.
The successful candidate:
The assessment of the applicants will be made by: Associate Professor Juan Maria García Lastra and Head of Section, Professor Tejs Vegge
Salary and appointment terms
The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed with the relevant union.
The position is for two years.
The employment is expected to start June 1st 2019 or soon thereafter.
