The DFG-Research Training Group “SiMET – Simulation of Mechanical, Electrical, and Thermal Processes in Lithium-ion Batteries” announces a
Postdoctoral Position (f/m)
at the earliest possible date for the period of 3 years.
In SiMET, 30 doctoral researchers from several scientific disciplines will study the closely linked mechanical, electrical and thermal
processes in lithium-ion batteries and, for this purpose, jointly develop suitable and numerical simulation methods. For more information
abput SiMET, please have a look at the SiMET homepage (www.simet.kit.edu
We expect separate research activity and collaboration in the area of battery simulation. The preferable candidate has knowledge and
experience in finite element methods in continuummechanics or fluiddynamics, especially multiscale methods.
Moreover, the applicant should be willing to teach the basics of numerical methods for partial differential equations and the use of
modern simulation tools to the doctoral students from the engineering department.
Requirements are a degree in mathematics or related subjects above average and experience with the development of finite element software.
KIT is pursuing a gender equality policy and encourages women to apply. Furthermore, in case of equal qualification preference is given to applicants with disabilities.
KIT kindly requests that applications with standard documents, be submitted to in electronic form
