Workplace Description 

The Centre on Sustainable Energy (SE) supports the development of devices and 
methods for generation, storage, and distribution of energy solutions at low 
environmental impact. This will be done in the perspective of energy 
sustainability, of systems and solutions that respect the environment and the 
quality of life, of solutions with a lower impact on health and on environmental 
pollution levels. The ground for the Centre on “Sustainable Energy” is based on 
the Decarbonization targets, which will demand for more flexibility of the 
energy system, through new gas and power grids and using energy vectors and 
storage solutions, as enablers for the wide penetration of renewables.
Job Description 
SE Center is involved through the Battery and Electrification Technologies (BET) 
unit in the development of advanced battery technologies, from single cells to 
large modules and systems. The selected candidate will contribute to projects on 
the development and testing of functional components/systems of battery 
technologies, including Redox Flow Batteries (RFBs), Solid State Batteries 
(SSBs) and Lithium Batteries (LIBs). The activities will focus on: design and 
optimization of layouts and components for test benches and for battery systems, 
modeling and prototyping of battery stacks/modules, definition of testing 
protocols based on standards and safety procedures, testing and validation of 
cells, modules and battery systems.
In addition, the selected candidate will support the design and commissioning of 
new laboratory infrastructures of the Center SE that will be located in 
The activities of the successful candidate will focus on: 
Design new customized test rigs (mainly for redox flow batteries, integrating 
power electronics, sensors, piping, pumps, heaters/coolers, etc) and supervise 
their construction;
Design and test components for redox flow batteries (bipolar plates, cells, 
stacks) also supported by 3D modeling tools (CFD, structural FEA);
Define test protocols based on test requirements, design of experiment, 
applicable standards and safety requirements;
Plan and perform electrical/electrochemical characterization and tests on cells, 
stacks/modules or/and battery systems, also producing technical reports;
Design, test and validate new energy storage systems focusing in particular on 
redox flow batteries and hybrid energy storage systems integrating different
