RWTH Aachen - Institute for Power Electronics and Electrical Drives

The chair of Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage Systems is part of the institute for power electronics and electrical drives and is in the faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of RWTH Aachen University. We’re working in close cooperation with the chair of Ageing Processes and Lifetime Prediction of Batteries to better understand the fundamental processes of state of the art and future battery technologies. Based on that, we create models to simulate the electrical, thermal and degradation behavior as well as to predict the lifetime.
We utilize high-end equipment like chemical laboratories, cell manufacturing, a battery test center and we develop the needed electronics and prototypes. Applications for our fundamental developments include mobile transportation (e.g. hybrid and electric vehicles, busses, on board power supply) and stationary storage (e.g. home storage, off-grid power supply). In conclusion, our research provides valuable contributions to important topics like electromobility and the transition to clean energy.
Our work environment promises an exciting scientific job while also allowing for family planning.

Research Assistant/Associate


You actively work on topics regar­ding the expe­ri­men­tal inves­ti­ga­tion and sub­se­quent simu­la­tion of lithium-ion-bat­te­ries.
Your work could be cen­te­red around:
  • Deve­lop­ment of phy­si­cal-che­mi­cal bat­tery models
  • Deve­lop­ment of fun­da­men­tal ana­lytics in the scope of bat­tery degra­da­tion pro­ces­ses
  • Deve­lop­ment and design of expe­ri­ments for the para­me­te­riza­t­ion nee­ded for the models
The main goal is to cha­rac­te­rize the bat­tery in such a way that the app­li­ca­tion in vehi­cles or other sys­tems is relia­ble, long-las­ting and rea­son­ably pri­ced. The super­vi­sion of stu­dents’ the­ses is wis­hed for and an invol­ve­ment in teaching is pos­si­ble addi­tio­nally to your pro­ject rela­ted tasks. Tech­ni­cal dis­cus­sions with your col­leagues and in pro­ject con­sor­tia is pos­si­ble and wis­hed for since most topics are lin­ked by the focus on app­li­ca­tion. Our equip­ment inclu­des state of the art electri­cal and phy­si­cal-che­mi­cal tes­ting set-ups for cha­rac­te­ri­zing bat­tery sys­tems and the nee­ded hard­ware to per­form the simu­la­ti­ons.

Er­war­te­te Qua­li­fi­ka­tio­nen:

Do you want to par­ti­ci­pate in the rese­arch on tech­no­lo­gi­cal and social chal­len­ges asso­cia­ted with the tran­si­tion to sustainable energy? Do you enjoy working on tech­ni­cal details and don’t lose sight of the big pic­ture? You fit our team, if you enjoy working wit­hin a big­ger group which focus­ses on rese­ar­ching the sto­rage of energy and if you are able to inde­pendently solve tech­ni­cal and sci­en­ti­fic pro­blems.
We employ co-workers with a mas­ter degree (or equi­va­lent) in phy­sics, che­mis­try, pro­cess engi­nee­ring, mate­ri­als sci­ence and electri­cal engi­nee­ring. You are inte­rested in working in pro­jects with part­ners from aca­de­mia and indus­try. You ide­ally have expe­ri­ence with labo­ra­tory work and simu­la­ting (e.g. FVM). Prior know­ledge of bat­tery tech­no­logy is bene­fi­cial but not a neces­sity.

Un­ser An­ge­bot:

The posi­tion is for 2 years and is to be fil­led as soon as pos­si­ble. An exten­sion of the con­tract for at least one year is plan­ned.

This is a full-time posi­tion. It is also avail­able as part-time employ­ment per request.

The suc­cess­ful can­di­date has the oppor­tu­nity to pur­sue a doc­to­ral degree.

The salary cor­re­sponds to level EG 13 TV-L.

RWTH Aachen Uni­ver­sity is cer­ti­fied as a "Family-Fri­endly Uni­ver­sity". We par­ti­cu­larly wel­come and encou­rage app­li­ca­ti­ons from women, disa­b­led per­sons and eth­nic mino­rity groups, reco­gni­zing they are under­re­pre­sen­ted across RWTH Aachen Uni­ver­sity. The prin­ci­ples of fair and open com­pe­ti­tion apply and appoint­ments will be made on merit.
