Now we are hiring a Senior Researcher in Electrochemical Modelling (batteries and supercap)
& Integration (EV and electrical grid):
Primary functions related are:
To create test plans and conducting battery tests for both know technologies (e.g. lithium ion,
lead acid) and emerging system (e.g. LiS, Al-Ion…).
To process test data to generate steady-state and dynamical models, identify model
parameters, and implement various model-based algorithms in different test platforms to
evaluate their performance.
To design new model corresponding to new emerging system and electrochemistries
To technically participate to the proposition of new direct tenders with companies or collaborative projects at both national and European level
Education and job requirements:
Background related to the position:
Battery testing and data analysis.
Current technologies: Supercapacitor, lithium ion, emerging technology such as LiS, LiO2, Al-
Ion, flow cell.
MSc in electrochemistry/chemistry or PhD with experience specific to the field.
Good experience in advanced control theory including linear/nonlinear system modeling and
model identification, and state observer design and tuning
Experience of hardware development and programming of real-time test beds for verification
of real time algorithms
Background related to the field:
Relevant experience in an electrochemical laboratory and concrete experience in battery
modelling or integration.
Knowledge relating to material and concept for energy storage technologies (Solid state,
advanced Li-Ion, Al-Air/Ion, LiO2, LiS) and supercapacitors
Good electrical or mechanical engineering background to understand impact of load profiles
on battery performance
Experience in electrified vehicle or/and stationary application
Experience with CAN networks and tools (Canalyzer, Canape, etc.)
Experience with system engineering tools (SysML, MagicDraw, etc.)
English is required. Working daily language is mostly Spanish. Additional language will be
Experience in implementing various numerical methods for
nonlinear optimization and nonlinear function root finding
(MATLAB, C, VBA, simsCAP, simulink…)
High level of mathematical and advanced analytical interpretation capabilities
Organized, proactive, oriented to team working and also self-reliant, able to generate new
concepts and take decisions by his/her own. Strong analytical and creative skills are mostly
Able to generate new ideas such as investigation line or solving issue by his/her own
Management both of people and projects is a plus.
