    • PhD degree (or equivalent)
      A qualified applicant will have expertise in one or more of the following topics:
    • Classical molecular dynamics simulations of organic materials or macromolecules
    • Development of polarizable force fields
    • Development or advanced applications of condensed-phase electronic structure methods (e.g. molecular dynamics, QM/MM, solvation models)
    • Prior experience with battery or other electrochemical materials is advantageous but not required.


    The assessment of the applicants will be made by Associate Professor Piotr de Silva and Head of Section, Professor Tejs Vegge

    Responsibilities/ Job Description

    The successful applicant will develop and apply a range of computational methods to simulate properties of a diverse set of organic battery materials. The research will be strongly linked to several externally funded battery projects carried out in the Section. The methodological toolbox will include classical molecular dynamics, density functional theory, and hybrid QM/MM approaches.
