Addionics Company:


Addionics is a rapidly growing company focusing on the creation and development of the next generation of battery technology through innovative breakthrough methods. Addionics overcome challenges in existing battery technology to result in significantly improved batteries with greater capacity, faster charging and other performance characteristics. Addionics unique technology enables battery development tailored for consumer electronics, micro-mobility, EVs and other applications. Addionics currently operates in two countries and works with different partners around the world.
 

General job description:


Addionics is looking to employ a battery modeller to work on electrochemical and thermo-mechanical models of lithium-ion batteries at electrode, cell and system level. The primary focus is the development and simulation of high fidelity models of battery cells employing Addionics’ advanced electrode technology. Specifically, the tasks relevant to this post focus on model development and model-based analyses for batteries design and optimisation. The successful candidate will develop and apply novel numerical models able to resolve pore-scale transport processes to understand the structure-transport-performance relationship and guide future designs and operation of lithium-ion batteries at cell and system levels. This work will involve close collaborations with Senior Battery Scientists and various industrial partners as well as with Addionics’ team in Israel. The battery modeller will report to the company’s directors and work within the offices based in Central London. A holder of the position will play a vital role in planning and successfully running and completing important models which will help determine R&D directions and scaling -up.

 

Responsibilities:


● Develop multiscale physics based models of lithium-ion batteries;
● Translate the results of physics based models into system level simulations;
● Work with experimentalists to gather data for the parameterisation and validation of models;
● Work closely with company and other project partners;
● Attend progress and project meetings;
● Write progress reports;
● Promote the company at external events;
● Transfer simulation analysis into real world products;
● Build a portfolio of electrochemical, mechanical and thermal models to meet the company targets;
● Develop strong and healthy collaboration with the team in the UK and with the other R&D teams and functional       groups in Israel;
● Plan, conduct modelling experiments and liaise with the lab work;
● Participate in planning process optimization and production scaling up;
 

Essential:

● PhD related to battery electrochemical, mechanical and thermal modelling. Understanding of physicochemical         phenomena in lithium-ion batteries. Backgrounds such as Mechanical/Chemical Engineering or a closely related       discipline, or equivalent research, industrial or commercial experience are suitable;
● Experience with electrochemical devices such as batteries;
● Experience with modelling techniques;
● Understanding system level simulations;
● Experience with testing batteries or working with experimentalists;
● Professional Experience with Multi-physics modelling software such as COMSOL
● Experience with and Matlab/Simulink and other programming languages such as C/C++, Python or Java
● Team player with excellent communication skills.

 

Desirable:


● Experience in fabrication and testing of lithium-ion batteries
● Experience in working in a software development environment
● Experience in the area of image-based simulations
● Experience in using machine learning for data analysis and simulations
● Experience in working in a multidisciplinary research environment and across multiple institutions
