“Thermodynamic Modeling and Analysis of Phase Transitions”
(Head: Dr. B. Wagner) devoted to the topic „Theory and Modelling of Electrochemical Systems“ starting as soon as possible.
Based on the principles of non-equilibrium thermodynamics, a framework for modeling and simulating electrochemical systems has been developed at WIAS. This framework has been validated using suitable laboratory experiments and is applied, among other things, to the modeling of batteries, fuel cells, and ion channels. The candidate will be responsible for further developing this framework and applying it to specific systems.
The work tasks include:
We are looking for: Candidates with a PhD in mathematics, scientific computing, theoretical physics, or related fields, and published research contributions in peer-reviewed journals are sought. In-depth scientific experience in modeling electrochemical systems with partial differential equations as well as a high interest in applications of mathematics are expected.
What we offer:
Technical queries should be directed to Dr. M. Landstorfer (Manuel.Landstorfer@wias-berlin.de).
This is a full-time position and is initially limited to two years.
