PhD position in chemo-mechanical modelling of energy materials at the University of Warwick, UK

An exciting PhD position exists at the University of Warwick ( within a collaborative multiscale materials modelling PhD project on chemo-mechanical modelling of energy materials.  

This project will provide enhanced understanding of the damage-transport coupling for various interfaces in energy materials across the length scales by developing a novel data-driven multiscale methodology linking first-principles calculations with the continuum modelling framework. That will simultaneously enable to identify relevant model parameters, account for their variability, and quantify their uncertainty. The ultimate interface model will be implemented within a finite-element approach, and applied to two case studies at the microscale: (a) intergranular damage within active electrode particles, and (b) interface damage between active particles and surrounding material (e.g. solid electrolyte), both subject to electrochemical cycling. The project will also be linked to nanoscale experimental investigations carried out by our experimental partners to match modelling efforts with experiments.   

The project is fully funded through the Centre for Doctoral Training HETSYS (, and in the first instance it seeks UK resident candidates (due to funding restrictions). However, there is 1 studensthip available for outstanding international candidates who also encouraged to apply. 

Additionally, all international candidates might wish to apply for an additional Chancellor's international scholarship with the deadline on January 25th, 2022. Please see more details on  

If interested in applying, please contact Lukasz Figiel (l.w.figiel 'at' for more information on the above.
