About Research project
The HELIOS project aims to develop and integrate innovative materials, designs, technologies and processes in the creation of a new concept of smart, modular and scalable battery pack for a wide range of electric vehicles used in urban electromobility services, from mid-size electric vehicles to electric buses. The goal is to improve performance, energy density, safety, lifetime and LCoS (Levelized Cost of Storage).

About Section for Electrical Energy Technology
The Section for Electrical Energy Technology focuses on energy system integration and energy transition for the purpose of a more efficient, circular and reliable energy system in the future. This includes coordinated planning and operation across multiple energy systems as well as renewable energy production, infrastructure and consumption.
The section is currently undergoing rapid expansion with regard to both educational and research activities, including two large H2020 projects. In recent years, it has become the largest place of study in Denmark for the electrical power engineering area at Bachelor’s level.
The section has established the RESCUE laboratory – http://www.rescuelab.au.dk/ – which is used by researchers, students and companies alike. The main goal of the laboratory is to gain experimental experience with future energy systems based on full integration of renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, biogas and storage systems.
In addition, the group has expanded its activities to Aarhus University’s campus in Herning, where it has established the first “online” degree programme in electrical energy technology, including a large energy technology laboratory.
- Appointment shall be in accordance with the collective labour agreement between the Danish Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations.
- Further information on qualification requirements and job content may be found in the Memorandum on Job Structure for Academic Staff at Danish Universities.
- Salary depends on seniority as agreed between the Danish Ministry of Finance and the Confederation of Professional Associations.
