Subject: 18.02.13 Postdoc in Simulations of Organic Materials for Battery Applications, DTU Energy, Denmark
The Section for Atomic Scale Modelling and Materials at DTU Energy, 
Technical University of Denmark (DTU), is looking for outstanding candidates 
for a 2-year postdoc position in simulations of organic materials for battery applications.

Responsibilities and tasks:
You will strengthen our research activities in computational studies of organic/polymer materials 
used in both electrode and electrolyte components of batteries. The focus will be on modelling 
of morphologies as well as electrochemical and charge transport properties in those materials 
using a wide range of computational tools using both classical and quantum methods 
(MD, DFT, QM/MM). The primary task will be to develop computational protocols 
and apply them to study properties of conducting redox-active polymers for Mg-ion batteries 
and polymeric electrolytes based on ionic liquids.

Candidates should have a PhD or equivalent degree in chemistry, physics or materials science. 

The ideal candidate will have extensive experience in at least one of the following topics:

    - Molecular dynamics and/or Monte Carlo simulations of polymers
    - DFT-level modelling of organic materials for energy storage and conversion
    - Multiscale simulations of molecular materials in complex disordered environments

In addition, you:

    - are innovative and able to work both independently and in cross-disciplinary teams
    - have good communication skills in English, both written and spoken
    - are able to work independently and take responsibility for the progress and quality of projects.

We offer:
DTU is a leading technical university globally recognized for the excellence of its research, 
education, innovation and scientific advice. We offer a rewarding and challenging job 
in an international environment. We strive for academic excellence in an environment 
characterized by collegial respect and an academic freedom tempered by responsibility. 

Salary and appointment terms:
The appointment will  be based on the collective agreement with the 
Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed with the relevant union.

The period of employment is 2 years.

The position is available immediately and the starting date is negotiable. 
Please state the earliest possible starting date in your cover letter.
