PhD project Description
Research Line: Computational Studies
Title: First-principles design of energy storage systems - when theory meets materials discovery
Supervisor: Dr. Javier Carrasco
Theme: The research project will be focused on the emerging area of computational materials design for energy storage applications.
Description: This project provides a unique opportunity to become skilled in theoretical materials modelling. You will be conducting exciting research into the functioning, design and control of battery materials at the molecular scale. The work will focus on using first-principles and semi-empirical approaches to address complex ion dynamics as well as developing novel strategies to analyse and mine existing large-scale materials data repositories. You will receive training in advanced molecular modelling techniques, including density functional theory and molecular dynamics, with particular interest in how to efficiently integrate such techniques into automated high-throughput frameworks for effective materials discovery. The work will be done in close collaboration with several theoretical and experimental groups worldwide. You will be working towards key societal goals such as the penetration of renewable energy sources in the electric grid, the electrification of transportation, and delivering value for energy consumers.
The position is subject to obtaining a Basque Government PhD Grant: http://www.hezkuntza.ejgv.euskadi.eus/
In order to be eligible the candidate must:
- Be resident in the Basque Country prior to 31st December 2016.
- Be fluent in Spanish or Basque language (for the interview process)
- Grade records (over 10) higher than: 7.5 in Engineering; .8.0 in Chemistry; 9.0 in Physics.
Note that those candidates not fulfilling all of the above criteria will be automatically discarded.
