Call IKUR Strategy Positions

Complete the following questionnaire for - IC2021_12 Postdoctoral researcher for the simulation of energy storage materials (IKUR)  (148 KB)

BCAM - Basque Center for Applied Mathematics is a world-class interdisciplinary research center located in Bilbao, Basque Country (Spain). Here, mathematicians, physicists, engineers, and computer scientists develop and apply state-of-the-art numerical techniques to tackle some of society’s most pressing problems. The Modelling and Simulation in Life and Materials Science group (MSLMS) of Prof. Elena Akhmatskaya combines advanced statistical methods and numerical algorithms with parallel computation to investigate complex systems in biology, materials science, and nanotechnology.

The postdoctoral applicant will join the MSLMS to work on problems related to the simulation of energy storage materials (batteries, supercapacitors, mixed matrix membranes) from a multiscale perspective: from the atomistic characterization of the structure/performance relationship in battery and adsorptive energy storage materials, to the microscopic study of charge transfer using continuous and particulate simulation methods. The researcher will also be involved in the development and implementation of machine learning schemes that automate the selection of material chemistries maximizing predefined performance criteria, as well as in developing surrogate models to reduce the need for expensive atomistic and microscopic calculations.

Deadline: January 21st 2022, 14:00 CET (UTC+1) .

Applications will be evaluated in a continuous manner, with a response period no longer than 4 weeks after the call deadline.
