Research Associate in Electronic Structure Theory of Battery Materials


Prof. Aron Walsh

Imperial College London’s Department of Materials wishes to appoint an outstanding individual with a strong track record in first-principles electronic structure calculations.

As part of a new UK consortium for the study of next-generation electrochemical energy storage, a research position is available on the theory and simulation of battery materials in the group of Professor Aron Walsh. The successful candidate will play a leading role in computational support for the development of multi-scale models that account for thermal and defect processes in the latest generation of lithium battery materials. Areas of interest include, but are not restricted to, phonon dispersion and thermal transport, theoretical defect spectroscopy, transport phenomena, materials data and informatics.
