Conducting research for a changing society: This is what drives us at Forschungszentrum Jülich. As a member of the Helmholtz Association, we aim to tackle the grand societal challenges of our time and conduct research into the possibilities of a digitized society, a climate-friendly energy system, and a resource-efficient economy. Work together with around 7,250 employees in one of Europe’s biggest research centres and help us to shape change!
At the Institute of Energy and Climate Research – Fundamental Electrochemistry (IEK-9), we perform research on highly relevant topics related to the energy transition. For example, we investigate the battery of the future and new battery concepts. How we can turn the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) into the fuel of the future or how electrolysis can contribute to a hydrogen energy economy are other exciting projects. The aim is to develop sustainable and cost-effective batteries and fuel cells with improved energy and power density, longer life-time, and maximal safety.

The German automotive industry can look back on more than a century of experience with fossil-fuel-powered drive trains. At present, however, the electrification of the drive train, which has now also been recognized by politics and industry, asks for a drastic modification for the entire value chain. As a mobile energy source and with around 40% of the value chain of an electric car, the battery is clearly the most important part. In the planned joint project “Progressive multi-cell network concepts for battery systems with integrated sensors” (ProMoBiS), the objective is to develop and optimize a “smart”, scalable multi-cell network (battery module) of lithium-ion battery cells, supported by application-oriented tests and modeling and simulation. The task for Forschungszentrum Jülich within the consortium is to develop a simulation model for the multi-cell network. In this project, your main tasks are:
