Applications
The research project has the following aims:
• To provide an organised set of computational routines in a multiscale model that
addresses ion diffusion and electronic structure and transport properties of energy-related
materials for photovoltaics (PV), especially hybrid perovskite and organic PV, potentially
also lithium-ion batteries.
• To set up a screening methodology for designing materials for PV and lithium-ion
batteries with optimal energy conversion and storage capabilities
• To develop cutting-edge mathematical, numerical and computational methods and
tools to aid simulation and visualisation of hybrid perovskite and organic PV and batteries

The candidate will work at the University of Bath. The position is linked to the
Device Modelling group of Prof Alison Walker (Department of Physics), the Materials
Chemistry group of Prof Saiful Islam (Department of Chemistry), and the Scientific
Computing group of Prof Robert Scheichl (Department of Mathematical Sciences).

The work requires the development of a scalable Poisson solver in generalized coordinates, and the implementation of an alternative hybrid semi-Lagrangian scheme, using NURBS (Non Uniform Rational Basis Splines) in the configuration space.

The candidate will work at CEA-Cadarache (France), in the Research Institute on controlled Magnetic Fusion (IRFM), in close collaboration with IPP-Garching (Germany) and Strasbourg university (France).

The objective for this position is to deploy an automatic testing infrastructure on the largest French or even European supercomputers. This infrastructure will play a key role on the process that improves software quality in HPC applications. The recruit will be in charge of the design and deployment of this platform by leveraging buildbot type technologies.

She/he will be part of teams of HPC experts from Maison de la Simulation and will work in collaboration with system administrators and security engineers from supercomputing centres. 

EoCoE is a European Horizon 2020 funded project of Centre of Excellence in computing applications. It is designed to enhance numerical simulation efficiency in the international context of the High Performance Computing (HPC) challenges. It focusses its application scope towards low carbon energy domains.
