  • Research Field: Engineering › Process engineering Engineering › Simulation engineering
  • Researcher Profile: Recognised Researcher (R2)
  • Application Deadline: 29/09/2022 00:00 - Europe/Brussels
  • Location: France › Amiens
  • Type Of Contract: Temporary
  • Job Status: Full-time
  • Hours Per Week: 35
  • Offer Starting Date: 03/10/2022
  • Eu Research Framework Programme: HE / ERC
  • This is an opening position for a postdoctoral researcher or engineer in the context of the ERC-funded Proof of Concept project "SMARTISTIC" led by Prof. Alejandro A. Franco at the Université de Picardie Jules Verne, Laboratoire de Réactivité et Chimie des Solides, in Amiens, France.

    The position is about the computational modeling of Lithium Ion Battery manufacturing processes by using discrete simulation approaches such as Coarse Grained Molecular Dynamics and Discrte Element Method. The candidate will work on engineering aspects of the pre-existing models and will contribute at pushing the boundaries of the associated software technology. These new types of models originated in the ERC-funded project "ARTISTIC" also led by Prof. Alejandro A. Franco.

    The recruited person will work within an international team involving physicists, chemists and engineers. He/she will benefit from a scientific environment of excellence and numerous opportunities for scientific and technological networking.

    Interested candidates should have a recent PhD diploma or equivalent, and a solid background in molecular dynamics simulations or similar techniques. Candidates having experience only on Density Functional Theory or similar electronic structure calculations will not have the required skills to undertake the work planned in this position.

    Position is for 1 year with posibility of renewal depending on funding opportunities. Starting date is as soon as possible (ideallly beggining of October 2022 as latest).

    Interested candidates are requested to send their curriculum vitae and motivation letter to Prof. Alejandro A. Franco (alejandro.franco@u-picardie.fr). Applications with generic motivation letters (i.e. not explaining how the candidate interest matches with Prof. Franco's activities and the projects above) will not be considered. The pre- selected candidates will be contacted by the end of August 2022 for an online interview.
