Job Description

As a Battery Cell Simulation Engineer, you will be responsible of developing analytical models intended for performance and life estimation simulations of battery cells. The models span a wide range of complexity, from models based on first hand physical principles to empirical models such as equivalent circuit representations. Much of the development rely on input from cell testing and an important part of the work is therefore to define test needs and test methods as well as development of methods to extract and calibrate model parameters.

Your work will be used as input by other teams for design of HW components and development of SW functionality in electric and hybrid vehicle projects. You will have a close collaboration with colleagues within the department Propulsion and Energy and other engineers within VCC. The job also involves a close collaboration with test teams and suppliers of cells and modules.

You will mainly use Python, but also tools like MATLAB/Simulink, Comsol and similar.

You and Your Skills
We believe you have a Master of Science degree in chemical engineering, applied physics, mathematics or similar to qualify. You will also need a genuine curiosity for the subject matter as well as a huge interest in modeling and programming. Further, you have excellent analytical and communication skills.

The ideal candidate for the position has a strong background in analytical work, preferably by modeling components or system behaviors with Python. Knowledge within the battery area is also considered as a valuable competence.
