This position will include teaching at undergraduate, advanced, and PhD level and research in close collaboration with our industrial partners within electrical engineering with a specific focus on energy storage and battery recycling. The overall research vision is to become an internationally recognized research group, giving both the students and the industry the best possible prerequisites.
Regarding the electrification, our ambitions is to build-up a high efficiency, price- and production-competitive test bed, that should be up and running in collaboration with our industrial partners in 2022. Within this framework, we plan to build a demonstrator cell for automated disassembly of batteries. Battery recycling is one of the most promising end-of-life options for electrical vehicle batteries, because it has the potential to considerably reduce the environmental impacts. The aim is to solve the chain from automation of the dismantling, establishing a bill of material, stabilization, and passivation to the final metallurgical recovery process. The ability to conduct education and research in this field is vital since rapid developments are taking place and many manufacturing companies in our region need support.
