We offer a three years PhD postion (covered by fellowship) at the Italian Institute of Technology (www.iit.it) in collaboration with the Polytechnical University of Milan (www.polimi.it).
The work activity will address the theoretical analysis of energy storage oriented systems by identifying multiphysics solutions capable of predicting the behaviour of a complete lithium-ion battery system. Numerical and analytical approaches will be properly combined in order to achieve the best performing model. The final goal is to realize a powerful numerical tool which, combined with the in-house battery fabrication capability, can lead to the design of innovative energy storage systems.
The activity will be run at the Italian Institute of Technology in close collaboration with the Department of Physics of the Polytecnical University of Milano, Italy. The successfull candidate will be able to access to state of the art numerical tools as well as hardware support systems. Collaboration with experimentalist will be conducted on daily basis.
Requirements: The candidates should have a background in physics, material science, chemistry or computer sciences. Importantly, they should be driven by strong interest in solving physics-related problems. General knowledge of electrochemistry as well as programming skills will be positively considered. The candidate should hold a master degree or, as alternative, it should be awarded within Summer 2020.
Applications, including a research statement, detailed curriculum vitae and names/contacts of at least 2 referees, should be submitted in PDF format to: Remo Proietti Zaccaria, Email: email@example.com
