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. We participate in the Cluster of Excellence POLiS for Post-Lithium Systems and the Graduate School for Electrochemical Energy Storage of CELEST. We 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.
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.
A characteristic feature of new batteries and fuel cells are transport and reaction processes in porous materials in which several phases are involved. These complex processes require the development of new models and innovative numerical solution strategies. For the development of advanced simulation tools for PEM fuel cells and post-lithium batteries based on the Lattice-Boltzmann Method, we are looking for PhD students with a background in physics and mathematics. Your task is the development, implementation and application of physico-chemical models for reactive transport in porous electrodes. The work requires good programming skills and experience in scientific computing. Basic knowledge in electrochemistry is helpful but not mandatory.
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.
