Position: Professor of Battery Electrochemistry and Materials
Institution: Paul Scherrer Institut
Location: Villigen, Aargau, Switzerland
Duties: The new professor will lead, in a joint appointment with ETH Zurich, a Laboratory for Battery Electrochemistry at PSI, and will thus benefit from the access to PSI’s unique large-scale experimental facilities and analytical infrastructure (Swiss Light Source, Swiss Neutron Source and the Swiss Free Electron Laser). An excellent international record of research accomplishments in the following areas is anticipated (non-exhaustive list): experimental and computational discovery, structural and morphological engineering of novel battery materials (electrodes, electrolytes etc.), diverse battery concepts (Na-ion batteries, all solid-state batteries, multivalent intercalation etc.), in situ/operando analytics and characterization of batteries
Requirements: The new professor should hold a Ph.D. or similar degree in chemistry, material sciences or in a related field. A strong motivation and undisputable commitment to student education is a prerequisite and the candidate will be involved to teaching at the undergraduate (German or English) and graduate (in English) levels
