This work will be focusing on the atomistic modelling of electrode/electrolyte interfaces in lithium-ion batteries, employing reactive force fields. The researcher will set up and run simulations in LAMMPS, generate scripts for the post-processing of simulation trajectories and analyse and document his/her results. Requirements: • M.Sc. or B.Sc. degree in Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Engineering, and related disciplines. Skills and track record: • Good interpersonal skills. • Demonstrated ability to work independently and as part of a collaborative research team. • Ability to effectively communicate and present research ideas to researchers and stakeholders with different backgrounds. • Fluency in spoken and written English. The preferred candidate will have: • Experience with the LAMMPS atomistic simulation package (knowledge of GROMACS is a plus). • Solid programming skills in either Python, C++ or Fortran. • Experience with Linux, bash scripts • Background knowledge on the simulation of interfaces and/or battery materials is desirable.
