We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher for multiscale modelling of batteries, in particular for post-lithium batteries.  Candidates should have expertise in computational theoretical physics or chemistry, or related areas and may have, depending on performance, a leading role in the buildup of a junior group in the context of the Battery2030+ EU flagship.  We expect the ability and desire to work in a heterogeneous interdisciplinary environment, strong research skills, and a history of innovation and accomplishment documented by a strong academic record in battery modelling. Successful candidates should be able to demonstrate leadership qualities.

Research at the materials simulation group (www.int.kit.edu/nanosim, staff ~ 30) at the Institute of Nanotechnology (www.int.kit.edu) has recently focused on the development of predictive multiscale materials design. The institute (staff ~300) is a central pillar of the research program Science and Technology of Nanosystems of the Helmholtz Society and offers a stimulating multidisciplinary work environment addressing many topical problems in nanoscience and technology, both experimentally and theoretically.

Inquiries should be directed via email to wolfgang.wenzel∂kit.edu with a full CV including their employment record and academic achievements. Copies of university transcripts or certificates are not required at this point. Candidates whose native language is not English should document their proficiency in written and spoken English.
