Subject: 22.06.28 Research Fellow, University of Warwick, Coventry, UK
Research Fellow (105979-0622) Department: Chemistry Salary: 31,406 - 40,927 per annum Location: University of Warwick, Coventry Vacancy Overview: Fixed-term contract for 36 months starting from 1 September 2022, 1.0 FTE. Nearing the theoretical limits of conventional Li-ion batteries, the ever-increasing demand for powering todays energy-intensive applications has urged next-generation energy storage technologies. All-solid-state batteries (ASSBs), which utilise a solid electrolyte, have drawn soaring attention as they can (a) mitigate the safety risks associated with the conventional liquid electrolytes; and (b) provide superior battery performances. ASSBs will thus find uses in industries where battery safety and performance are utmost, such as electric vehicles. Some major limitations, however, are yet to be resolved before ASSBs can be fully commercialised, which we strive to tackle at a molecular level in our group through three closely aligned work packages run in parallel: (1) Discovering novel ASSB materials with superior performance; (2) Modelling the Solid-Solid Interfaces within ASSBs; and (3) Developing Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) strategies for ASSB Applications. We are looking for an enthusiastic post-doctoral researcher (PDRA) who is eager to learn, create, and innovate in an electrifying research field! The postholder will have a background in computational chemistry, physics, computer science or other relevant discipline. They will employ a wide range of state-of-the-art computational modelling methods, also contributing to their development. The research activities involve the atomistic modelling and discovery of ASSB materials, and first-principles characterization of their various properties, which allow for a direct connection with the experiments, done by collaborators. These tasks require calculations that are run on local, and national-scale high-performance computing (HPC) facilities. The post is funded by an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) grant. The work packages are implemented in close collaboration with the leading experimentalist and theoretician experts from the University of Warwick (Chemistry, Physics and WMG), University of Cambridge (Chemistry) and from abroad (TNO, Netherlands). The PDRA will have ample chances (and is expected) to interact with the collaborators during their appointment. Selected Publications:  Carbon, 2022, 191, 255-266;  Physical Review Materials, 2020, 4 (6), 065401;  J. Am. Chem. Soc., 2020, 142, 6, 3132-3148;  Chem. Mater. 2019, 31, 4, 1250-1257;  ACS Nano, 2017, 11 (9), 93039311; *Copies are available upon request. If you are near submission or have recently submitted your PhD but have not yet had it conferred, any offers of employment will be made as Research Assistant at the top of level 5 of the University grade structure (30,497). Upon receipt of evidence of the successful award of your PhD, you will be promoted to Research Fellow on the first point of level 6 of the University grade structure (31,406 pa). Please direct informal enquiries and requests for further information to Dr. Bora Karasulu ( bora.karasulu(~)warwick.ac.uk ). The post-doctoral researcher (PDRA) will employ a wide range of state-of-the-art computational modelling methods to model all-solid-state battery (ASSB) materials, viz. electrodes and electrolytes, and related coating materials. The PDRA will use both DFT and empirical potential based methods to (a) investigate various structural, electronic, and spectroscopic properties of the battery materials; (b) explore new materials through high-throughput computational screening; (c) model the solid-solid interfaces and their chemistry and (d) predict the ionic and electronic transport behaviour within bulk materials and at the interfaces. Ideally, the post holder will also contribute to the development of the computational methodology, working on the group codes and writing input preparation and post-analysis scripts. The PDRA will therefore need to run calculations on local, and national-scale high-performance computing (HPC) facilities. Duties & Responsibilities 1. Apply computational techniques (based on both DFT and empirical potentials) for (a) the modelling of battery materials and their various properties as well as their interfaces; (b) exploration of new materials and (c) the prediction of ionic and electronic transport behaviour within bulk materials and their interfaces. 2. Contribute to the preparation of peer-reviewed publications, posters, scientific reports, and grant bids. 3. Deliver oral and poster presentations at international conferences and workshops. 4. Participate in group seminars, collaboration meetings, and other intellectual activities. 5. Assist in the supervision of MSc/MChem and PhD students affiliated to the project. 6. Manage own academic research and administrative activities, including small-scale project management and coordinating multiple aspects of work to meet deadlines. 7. To act with professionalism at all times and show respect to their colleagues and to understand and adhere to the University's value of dignity at work; they are also expected to work collegially and to support all the teams with which they have contact in achieving the University's objectives. 8. Any other duties commensurate with the grade and level of responsibility of this post, for which the post holder has the necessary experience and/or training. Closing Date: 20 July 2022
