Within a joint project between the Laboratory for Neutron Scattering and Imaging LNS (Division: Research with Neutrons and Muons) and the Electrochemistry Laboratory LEC (Division: Energy and Environment Research) at the Paul Scherrer Institute in Villigen, Switzerland we are looking for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the field of Neutron Scattering Studies on Li-ion Batteries
The Paul Scherrer Institute PSI is the largest research centre for natural and engineering sciences within Switzerland. We perform cutting-edge research in the fields of matter and materials, energy and environment and human health. By performing fundamental and applied research, we work on sustainable solutions for major challenges facing society, science and economy. PSI is committed to the training of future generations. Therefore about one quarter of our staff are post-docs, post-graduates or apprentices. Altogether PSI employs 1900 people.
Cross-Research Project “Pushing the limits of operando neutron diffraction applied to Li-ion batteries” with particular focus on:
Our institution is based on an interdisciplinary, innovative and dynamic collaboration. You will profit from a systematic training on the job, in addition to personal development possibilities and our pronounced vocational training culture. If you wish to optimally combine work and family life or other personal interests, we are able to support you with our modern employment conditions and the on-site infrastructure.
Your employment contract is limited to 2 years (with possible prolongation for further 2 years).
You hold a PhD in chemistry, material science, physics or in a related discipline and you are able to work independently and initiatively. Strong experience in the fields of batteries or electrochemistry and know-how in neutron or X-Ray scattering, spectroscopy or diffraction, and further in data analysis and modelling of complex data are expected. Very good knowledge of English is required for this position.
