Postdoctoral Research Associate
Applications are invited for one Postdoctoral Research Associate position in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Iowa State University. The research objective of this position is to develop advanced machine learning and failure prognostics to predict the reliability and lifetime of lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery and/or other energy systems. The duration of the position is expected to be one year and may be renewable based on performance and availability of funding. The salary will be commensurate with the prior research experience of the applicant.
Candidates should have a recent Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or a related discipline. Applicants with experience in i) machine learning and failure prognostics, and/or ii) battery management system (BMS) are highly encouraged to apply. Particularly, prior research experience in one or more of the following areas are desired:
- Algorithm development for signal processing and machine learning
- Algorithm development for reliability and lifetime modeling and failure prognostics
- Equivalent circuit or electrochemical modeling of Li-ion cells, modules and packs
- State-of-charge and state-of-health estimation of Li-ion cells, modules and packs
The position is available immediately. Applications will be processed as they arrive until the position is closed. Interested applicants should submit by email (a) a cover letter that summarizes prior research experience, (b) a CV and (c) a list of two references, to Professor Chao Hu, email@example.com.
