Open position: Cell modeling expert

At Compular we build software to unleash the power of computational chemistry and physics to help industry develop the materials of tomorrow. We are a startup, founded in 2020, and are now growing our team with multiple chemists, physicists, and developers to boost our models, methodologies, and software to make faster and better predictions of battery materials properties. This is a rare opportunity to transfer computational methods usually associated with academia to an industrial setting.

Key responsibilities

As cell modeling expert you will:

      • Run and improve continuum models for battery cells, including P2D models and three-dimensional models. This involves both existing frameworks and development of new ones, and you will be trusted to make the best choices.
      • Stay updated with scientific developments. We aim to be at the forefront of battery modeling and you will be our eyes and ears in the cell modeling field.
      • Provide expertise in customer interaction. Your technical expertise will be essential in maintaining and enhancing client trust and satisfaction.
      • Share your knowledge with the team. Collaboration within our team is vital for the integration and development of our battery modeling toolchain. By sharing your expertise, you’ll contribute to a cohesive and innovative working environment where collective knowledge drives progress.


    The successful candidate will possess some or all of the following qualifications:

        • Expertise in battery cell modeling, probably attained through a PhD or with equivalent work in industry.
        • Experience with different frameworks for continuum-scale modeling, such as Comsol or PyBaMM.
        • Familiarity with scripting languages, such as Python.
        • Excellent communication skills in both written and spoken English.
        • Comfortable working in a fast-paced environment where priorities can change quickly and uncertainty is the default state.

      What’s in it for you?

      At Compular you will join a small team with high ambitions, pushing the boundaries and changing the way materials are developed. Being a startup means we have a lot of freedom, and so do you – we always try to improve how we work such that everyone can thrive. Roles are fluid and flexible and you will have the chance to broaden your responsibilities if you want to, which means you can gather a lot of experience by working with us. Our office is located at Vasagatan in central Gothenburg, Sweden, but we also support hybrid work arrangements when that is more practical. We offer competitive salaries.
