In this position you will join our excellent Material and Cell Characterization (MCC) group. We are searching for a reliable and highly organized researcher to preform materials characterization research and evaluations.
Essential Duties and Responsibilities:
You will be responsible for addressing materials characterization research and evaluations to identify root cause failure mechanisms of ultra-fast charging batteries and recommend solutions.
Identify and analyze chemical and physical data from different development stages (material level and battery cell component) and integrate the resulted information together with electrochemical performance to determine root cause of failure mechanisms.
Design and plan electrochemical tests relating to the battery development.
Develop new analytical techniques to identify failure mechanisms.
Perform statistical correlations between physio-chemical analysis and performance parameters.
To perform the job successfully, an individual should demonstrate the following competencies:
MSc or PhD in Chemistry or related field with at least 3 years of research experience in characterization of chemical and material structure of both surface and bulk of particles/surfaces.
Proven experience evaluating material characteristics using one or more of the following analytical techniques:
Electron microscopy of inorganic materials. Preferably knowledge in high-res TEM
Proven record evaluating porosity of materials.
Proven record developing FTIR or Raman Spectroscopy methods.
Experience with statistical analysis - an advantage.
Curiosity and strive to develop chemical, material and surface chemistry oriented methods to define failure issues.
Demonstrate technical leadership and issue ownership; Strong analytical problem solving and troubleshooting skills.
Ability to work collaboratively with group members, internal/external colleagues.
A strong work ethic.
