Postdoc position available at Physics, Chalmers University of Technology

par Secretaire - 6 septembre 2017

The next generation battery research activities at the Department of Physics, Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg, Sweden, are rapidly expanding. Therefore we now need a computational postdoc within :

DFT and COSMO-RS based rational electrolyte development (1+1 year) Electrolytes for next generation batteries are a complex class of materials, but by applying several modelling approaches starting at the molecular level the development can be made more rational. By a joint computational and experimental approach fundamental properties such as solubility, stability, and conductivity etc. can be targeted, tested and verified. A postdoc with ample PhD experience of molecular ab initio/DFT and/or COSMO-RS simulations for molecules is now needed – to work mainly on the development of new electrolyte materials, but also with opportunities to expand the computational methodology. In addition, the postdoc should be able to specify/create and handle a GPU-based workstation and to be responsible for the development of scientific visualization tools and activities within the research group. The position is mainly funded by CAlcium Rechargeable BAttery Technology (CARBAT) – a novel H2020 FET-Open funded project between ICMAB (Barcelona, Spain), U. Complutense (Madrid, Spain), Fraunhofer ISiT (Itzehoe, Germany), and Chalmers. Hence the main aim is to assist the creation of efficient calcium-ion conducting electrolytes, but also sodium-ion, lithium-sulfur, and aluminium battery electrolytes will be included. Excellent oral and written reporting to the CARBAT consortium as well as at international conferences and in scientific journals of high repute is also expected.

Information and Application The postdoc must be able to work independently both in his/her own scientific efforts, when reporting results orally and written, and when guiding and supervising BSc, MSc and PhD students. A PhD degree in Physics, Chemistry, or Materials Science no older than 2 years is strongly preferred. The postdoc will be mentored by Prof. Patrik Johansson, Physics and additional CARBAT PIs. Starting date : 1/12-2017 – 1/1 2018. Salary : Ca 36.000 SEK/month (approx. 3800€/month) pre-tax (tax ≈30%), all social benefits included. Working language : English - our activities and division are highly international ; > 10 nationalities.

Application : Candidates should send a CV and a personal letter to The candidate should also arrange for 2 recommendation letters to be sent directly from the recommender to Please clearly specify the position that the application concerns.
