General job description

 

Addionics is looking to employ a Machine learning (ML) & Battery Modelling Engineer who will be responsible for creating artificial intelligence (AI) solutions on electrochemical and thermo-mechanical models of the next generation of innovative lithium-ion batteries. It will involve working on patent-pending methods and new solutions for batteries at electrode, cell and system level. The candidate must have a legal right to work in the UK.

 

The focus will be development and implementation of ML algorithms and simulations of high-fidelity models of Addionics battery designs and electrode technology. The candidate will be response to facilitate battery design from a fundamental level to enhance optimization of performance using ML techniques; working alongside other team members and Addionics solutions. The successful candidate will therefore help develop ground-breaking solutions to resolve pore-scale transport processes and understand structure-performance relationships that will serve as a benchmark and guide for future designs and operation of emerging lithium-ion battery technology. The role will involve highly innovative and close collaborations with senior battery scientists, industrial partners and Addionics’ team in Israel. The candidate should be a strong self-motivator, with capable skillset in batteries and machine learning. The candidate will report to the company’s directors from time-to-time and work within the offices based in Central London. The candidate will take pride in the unique new role and maintain our high quality of work.

 

A holder of the position will play a vital role in planning and successfully running and completing important AI informed designs of electrode microstructures which will help determine R&D directions and scaling -up.

 

Responsibilities:

 

  • Develop machine learning and AI applications enhancing Addionics’ battery designs;

  • Help develop multiscale physics based models of lithium-ion batteries;

  • Translate the results of physics based models into system level performance;

  • Work with experimentalists to gather data for the parameterization and validation of models;

  • Perform analytical work on optimized parameters and model outputs;

  • Work very closely with company team members 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 ML based 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;

  • Participate in planning process optimization and production scaling up;

 

Essential:

  • PhD related to Mathematics, Statistics and ML algorithms. Preferably with understanding of electrochemical, mechanical and thermal modelling. Backgrounds such as Mechanical/Materials/Chemical Engineering or a closely related discipline, or equivalent research, industrial or commercial experience are suitable

  • Experience in managing and developing machine learning/AI projects

  • Experience with electrochemical devices

  • Experience with modelling techniques

  • Professional experience with Python using standard libraries and Matlab/Simulink and other programming languages such as C/C++, Python or Java

  • Professional experience in TensorFlow, PyTorch and equivalent
