Vacancy No. 389/2019

Scientist (m/f/x)

Job description
  • Independent planning and execution of laboratory work, execution of experiments and measurements on lithium-ion mobility
  • Independent protocolling of the performed tests and evaluation of the measurements
  • Arrangement and planning of measurements with other groups (industrial partners)
  • Participation in project meetings and preparation of project reports

Within the scope of the work, a newly developed measuring principle is to be validated in order to better quantify and understand the mobility of lithium ions in electrolytes and separators. The interdisciplinary work is designed to gain an understanding of the new measurement method and to investigate the applicability and limitations of the new development. The method will be compared with complementary on-site measurement methods. In addition, it is planned to further develop the measurement design. The results will be compared with cell tests on current electrode materials. The latest electrode materials, separators and electrolyte materials will be investigated. The project will be carried out in close cooperation with an industrial partner investigating cell design and process engineering.

An occupation-accompanying doctorate is desired.

Personal qualification
