PhD position

There is an open position within the Cluster of Excellence Post Lithium Storage (POLiS) for a

Chemist (f/m/d)

to join the Graduate School ‚Electrochemical Energy Storage GS-EES‘ as part of the Center for Electrochemical Energy Storage Ulm & Karlsruhe (CELEST)

> Scope: Part-time 67% > Temporary: 3 years > Remuneration: TV-L 13 > Term: 3 years

Your tasks:

Your area of ​​responsibility extends from the preparation of polymer films to the assembly and characterization of test cells. The focus is on the polymer-based material, which is to be investigated using electrochemical and mechanical analysis methods to derive structure-property relationships. Another focus is the investigation of the interactions between different electrolytes and electrode materials, especially by means of isothermal microcalorimetry. You will publish the research results you have obtained in relevant journals and present them at national and international scientific conferences. The possibility of obtaining a doctorate in addition to scientific work is given and explicitly desired. Participation in the GS-EES graduate school offers a wide range of further training opportunities and funding for stays abroad.


Your skills:

You obtained a university degree (diploma (university) / master) in the field of chemistry or engineering with experience in the field of synthesis and processing of polymers or in electrolyte development. We require very good spoken and written English skills. Ideally, you have knowledge in the field of calorimetry.

PhD position

There is an open position within the Cluster of Excellence Post Lithium Storage (POLiS) for a

Academic employee (m/f/d)
(PhD student)

to join the Graduate School ‚Electrochemical Energy Storage GS-EES‘ as part of the Center for Electrochemical Energy Storage Ulm & Karlsruhe (CELEST)

> Scope: Part-time 67% > Temporary: 3 years > Remuneration: TV-L 13 > Start: as early as possible

Your profile:

  • A Master’s degree (or equivalent) in materials science, chemistry or a relevant discipline.
  • English language proficiency corresponding to C1 level
  • Experience in inorganic material synthesis or electrochemical measurements is preferable

Your responsibilities:

  • The proposed thesis work will focus on understanding the charge transfer and structural evolution in the multivalent battery systems, and establishing insertion chemistry that enables fast multivalent ion diffusion kinetics. The target is to develop multivalent battery cathodes with simultaneously high energy density and high power density.
  • Your tasks include synthesizing inorganic materials (mainly transition metal sulfides), testing their electrochemical performances in multivalent batteries (Mg- and Ca- batteries), and further mechanism investigation.
  • The PhD position is affiliated with the Helmholtz Institute Ulm (Prof. Maximilian Fichtner) and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Dr. Zhenyou Li.)
