We have multiple openings to conduct research on multiscale modeling of complex interfaces for energy storage and conversion. This includes simulations of chemistry and transport at solid-liquid and solid-solid interfaces for solid-state batteries. You will work transversely with different business units in a multidisciplinary and international environment.
• Perform multi-scale simulations of solid-solid and solid-liquid interfaces.
• Perform analysis of pathways and barriers for interfacial chemical reactions and ion transport phenomena.
• Develop structure-composition-property relationships for optimizing transport and reactivity using statistical, analytical, and machine learning methodologies.
• Collaborate with computational and experimental scientists in a multidisciplinary team environment to accomplish research goals.
• Perform other duties as assigned.
• Recent Ph.D. in Materials Science, Chemistry, Physics, or a related field. Masters with critical experience will also be considered.
• Understanding of the concepts of density functional theory and related quantum mechanical methods, and in the application of density functional theory to simulations of chemical reactions and/or ion transport in materials.
• Experience in at least one or many of the following methods: classical or coarse-grained molecular dynamics, potential fitting, phase-field simulations, or finite-element simulations.
• Proficient verbal and written communication skills in English.
• Ability to travel as necessary to interact with customers.
• Experience in one or more of the following application areas: solid-state batteries, Li-ion batteries and fuel cells.
• Experience with the development of novel methods for modeling the effects of chemical composition on interfacial electrochemistry, or performing large-scale ab initio simulations on high-performance computing environments, and Proficiency in python, comsol and matlab.
• Experience with the application of statistical, analytical, or machine learning methods for optimizing ion transport at interfaces and in solids.
