17.02.2017, Wissenschaftliches Personal

We are currently seeking a new colleague for the BMBF funded project ExZellTUM II (, which is a joint project between the Chair of Technical Electrochemistry (Chemistry Department), the Institute for Machine Tools and Industrial Management (Mechanical Engineering Department), the Chair of Electrical Energy Storage (Electrical Engineering Department), and the Neutron source FRM II at Technical University of Munich. The position is in the subgroup at the Chair of Technical Electrochemistry under supervision of Prof. Hubert Gasteiger. ExZellTUM II examines the entire production chain of Lithium Ion Battery manufacturing, from designing electrodes, characterizing their electrochemical performance, all the way to designing and testing of large-format battery cells. Goal is the investigation of silicon anodes and high voltage cathodes in Lithium Ion Batteries as well as the optimization of all manufacturing steps.

- Your tasks include the investigation of mixing processes of active material slurries and the fabrication of laboratory cells.
- Characterization of performance limiting phenomena by AC impedance and in-situ diagnostic methods (X-ray absorption spectroscopy, neutron based methods, XRD).
- Scale-up from laboratory cells to larger format cell designs will be important for industrial applications of Lithium Ion Batteries, therefore you will investigate possibilities to transfer production steps from laboratory to pilot applications.

Your profile:
- Above average master degree in chemistry, chemical engineering, physics or similar and received PhD degree in one of the above mentioned fields.
- Experience in the field of electrochemistry, especially Lithium Ion Battery research, is advantageous but not necessarily mandatory.
- High motivation, ability to work in a team and self-reliant working style.

Additional Information:
- Start: April-June 2017
- Project duration: 30.09.2019
- TV-L E13 (100%)

Persons with disabilities will be preferred in case of equal qualification. TUM aims at a higher proportion of women. Applications from women are therefore explicitly welcome.
