We are Austria’s largest research and technology organisation and an international player in applied research for innovative infrastructure solutions. This makes us a powerful development partner for industry and a top employer in the scientific community. Our Center for Low-Emission Transport is seeking to hire new Ingenious Partners for our location in Vienna:

Scientist (m/f/d) Battery Materials Characterization

- Center for Low-Emission Transport -


  • The synthesis, development, electrode processing and characterization of active materials for lithium and post-lithium-ion batteries is essential for improving their electrochemical performance. In addition, the in-situ and post-mortem characterization of electrodes can help deepen the understanding of the degradation mechanisms occurring at the bulk- and interface levels.
  • Together with our international multidisciplinary team of scientists, students, engineers, and technicians, you will characterize the next generation of energy storage materials for a sustainable electromobility of the future.


  • You apply techniques such as XRD with Rietveld refinement, Raman spectroscopy and SEM on electrode active materials and electrodes pre- and post-cycling
  • You are responsible for devices for XRD, XRF, and Raman spectroscopy measurements.
  • You help design, acquire, and conduct projects with industrial clients on the post-mortem characterization of battery cells and cell materials.
  • You strengthen your network with both industrial and academic partners.
  • You support other scientists and contribute to publications on fundamental materials characterization.


  • Your results contribute to the success of our current research and development projects.
  • You carry out customer projects.
  • You help to establish new methods and processes within our battery materials development and characterization team.
  • Your results will build your expertise and international recognition within the area.

Your qualifications as an Ingenious Partner:

  • You hold a PhD degree in chemistry, physics or materials science with a strong background in crystallography
  • You have at least 3 years of experience in fundamental physico-chemical characterization techniques such as SEM, Raman spectroscopy, and/or XPS
  • You master the XRD technique including Rietveld refinement
  • Some experience in gas chromatography would be seen as a plus
  • You are a good communicator and highly motivated team player
  • Very good German and English (written and spoken at technical level)

What to expect: 
The minimum gross annual salary according to the collective agreement is EUR 49.532--. The actual salary will be determined individually, based on your qualifications and experience. In addition, we offer company benefits, flexible working conditions, individual training and career opportunities.

At AIT, the promotion of diversity is important to us - that's why we are especially looking forward to hearing from female applicants!
