Battery Cell Simulation Engineer

You want to make a difference. So do we.

Volvo Cars is on an exciting journey, redefining the automotive experience by innovating to make people’s lives less complicated. We offer you a once-in-a-lifetime chance to be part of making an impact in a company with unique opportunities to grow and make a true difference.


Where You’ll Belong
Volvo Cars is committed to going fully electric by 2030 and mastering the battery is a key for us to success. We at Propulsion Energy Systems (PES) are now investing heavily in developing our analysis operations for traction batteries in terms of simulations and through developing our new battery labs. The analyses of traction batteries grow fast and challenge both VCC, battery suppliers and our OEM competitors. Do you want to contribute? 


Take the chance to be part of a team where everyone is included and collaborates well. We will challenge you and expect you to do the same to bring out the best from each one of us!


What You’ll Do
As Battery Cell Simulation Engineer, you will be responsible of developing analytical models intended for performance and life estimation simulations of battery cells. The models span a wide range of complexity, from models based on first hand physical principles to empirical models such as equivalent circuit representations. Much of the development rely on input from cell testing and an important part of the work is therefore to define test needs and test methods as well as development of methods to extract and calibrate model parameters.
Your work will be used as input by other teams for design of HW components and development of SW functionality in electric and hybrid vehicle projects. As such you will have a close collaboration with colleagues within the traction battery ART and other engineers within VCC. The job also involves a close collaboration with test teams and suppliers of cells and modules. 
You will mainly use Python, but also tools like MATLAB/Simulink, Comsol and similar.
You and Your Skills
We believe you have a Master of Science degree in chemical engineering, applied physics, mathematics or similar to qualify. You will also need a genuine curiosity for the subject matter as well as a huge interest in modeling and programming. Further, you have excellent analytical and communication skills. 
The ideal candidate for the position has a strong background in analytical work, preferably by modeling components or system behaviors with Python. Knowledge within the battery area is also considered as a valuable competence.
