The selected candidate must have a PhD degree in mathematics or statistics and should document research/education background in all of the following topics:

  • Battery state-of-health estimation using machine learning
  • Battery lifetime prediction
  • Battery voltage prediction/modeling

The ability to contribute to the development of external collaboration and to secure external funding will be taken into account and the applicant is expected to have very good interpersonal skills. Special contributions to the development of educational and teaching related activities will be considered in the overall assessment.

The selected candidate is expected to engage in acquiring external funding for research.
