Your qualifications as an Ingenious Partner*:

  • You hold a PhD degree in chemistry, physics or materials science
  • You have at least 5 years of experience in electrochemical characterisation and materials development for energy storage (use of Maccor, Biologic or comparable systems)
  • You have experiences in Lithium ion technologies, but ideally have had first experiences with Post-Lithium Ion materials, e.g. solid-state electrolytes
  • You have good experience in materials synthesis and working in a chemical laboratory
  • You are a good communicator and highly motivated team player
  • Very good English (written and spoken at technical level), German desirable, but not necessary
