DLR's Institute of Engineering Thermodynamics conducts research in the field of efficient energy storage systems and next-generation energy conversion technologies. The department of Computational Electrochemistry is developing new theories and simulation tools for batteries and fuel cells. At the interface of fundamentals and application our interdisciplinary team investigates physico-chemical relationships with the aim of further improving electrochemical technologies for electromobility and stationary energy storage. We participate in the Cluster of Excellence POLiS for Post-Lithium Systems and offer you access to excellent cutting-edge research, space for your own ideas and contact to national as well as international partners in academia and industry.
Metal-sulfur batteries based on lithium or magnesium offer a particularly high theoretical energy density. In order to exploit this potential, a better understanding of the transport and reaction processes in the pore network is required. Therefore, improved continuum models will be developed and implemented describing the processes from microporous materials to macroporous electrodes. In particular, the Lattice-Boltzmann-method for pore-scale simulations will be further developed.
Your tasks will be:
Develop new mathematical models and methods for metal-sulfur batteries
Expand the state of knowledge
Apply your results of basic research to practical research tasks
Publish your results in scientific journals and on conferences
Look forward to a fulfilling job with an employer who appreciates your commitment and supports your personal and professional development.
Our unique infrastructure offers you a working environment in which you have unparalled scope to develop your creative ideas and accomplish your professional objectives.
Our human resources policy places great value on a healthy family and work-life-balance as well as equal opportunities for persons of all genders (m/f/non-binary).
Individuals with disabilities will be given preferential consideration in the event their qualifications are equivalent to those of other candidates.
