Researcher for Method Development in Electric Powertrains SEEL

Do you want to work with electric vehicles and contribute to the development of sustainable and competitive value chains for electromobility? Would you like the opportunity to conduct advanced testing at newly built test facilities equipped with state-of-the-art equipment? We are expanding our team at SEEL and strengthening our research department with several positions in applied research, focusing on method development, measurement techniques, and data analysis for battery and electric powertrain characterization!

About Us
SEEL, Swedish Electric Transport Laboratory, is a collaboration between Chalmers and RISE for research and development in electromobility. SEEL is currently starting the operation of three cutting-edge test facilities in Gothenburg, Nykvarn, and Borås. The aim of SEEL is to improve efficient knowledge development and cooperation to accelerate the evolution of electrified transports.

The automotive, aerospace, and maritime sectors, together with developers of relevant technology, will gain the possibility to test prototypes and products at independent test facilities with state-of-the-art equipment. Researchers from academia and research institutes will also have access to advanced research infrastructure. The shift towards electrified propulsion is rapidly gaining momentum in various industries, and research is a crucial part of creating synergies and making the right choices regarding powertrains and associated systems.

About the Role
A key task will be to work on research projects that drive interdisciplinary method development and knowledge building related to electric powertrains and the associated ecosystem. This includes, for example, electrical measurement techniques, dynamic torque measurement, thermodynamics, inverters, battery charging, battery management, vehicle-to-grid, control software, and data collection from powertrains and vehicles.

You will collaborate with other researchers at universities and institutes, which includes the responsibility to create new projects and write grant applications. Another part of the job is working on research assignments from industrial clients. You will represent SEEL and ensure that we have strong collaborations, dialogue, and results – for example, by promoting SEEL at conferences and networking events. The position is located in Säve, Gothenburg, with monthly trips to Nykvarn and occasional trips to the EU. You will report to SEEL's Research Director.

Who You Are?
We are looking for someone with a Ph.D., which is a requirement for the position. You are fluent in both spoken and written English, and if you also have proficiency in Swedish, it’s a merit. In this role, you will collaborate with both industrial partners and researchers from academia and institutes. To do this effectively, we believe that you are communicative, skilled at building relationships, curious, and meticulous in your work.

You have good understanding of customer needs, are adaptability, and have the ability to work smoothly in changing circumstances. As a researcher, it's also essential that you handle measurement equipment and data effectively. Industry experience is a plus. Through your previous experiences, you have gained expertise in powertrains.

Are we a good fit?
Research work at SEEL will be challenging, and you will be sharing this with dedicated colleagues in a dynamic environment that provides opportunities for growth and development. At SEEL, our goal is for you to both enjoy your daily work and succeed in your research career while contributing to a sustainable future and competitive business environment. Welcome to the future of electromobility.

Welcome with your application!
