Commencement date: starting as soon as possible
The Institute of Materials Research of Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht is offering a PhD student position (m/f/d) in multiscale modeling of hydrogen storage materials. The position is initially limited for three years (starting as soon as possible).
In the framework of our research on “Novel Complex Metal Hydrides for Efficient and Compact Hydrogen Storage” the Institute of Materials Research at HZG is offering a positions for a post graduate student interested in the development and simulation of hydrides and hydride composites for solid state hydrogen storage. The aim of this work is the characterization, understanding and optimization of novel complex and light metal hydrides as well as their composites for hydrogen storage and batteries. The results are the basis for further optimisation of such materials for mobile and stationary energy storage applications.
The project will be conducted as part of a multidisciplinary and highly motivated team within the newly established division for Computation and Simulation. The goal is to form close connections between the team members to approach problems from different perspectives and to create an atmosphere where creative ideas and exchange of knowledge can thrive.
Furthermore, the project will be part of a close collaboration with a renown research institute in the USA which will involve frequent research stays at the partner institution.
