In line with Empa’s mission, the Technology and Society Laboratory (TSL) creates and transfers knowledge to support the transition to a more sustainability society. In particular, TSL analyses novel materials and emerging technology applications with a focus on associated material and
energy stocks and flows, and evaluates them with regard to both natural environment and societal constraints.
Within TSL, the Critical Materials and Resource Efficiency Group (CARE) is looking for a
who will be responsible for developing and applying experimental and analytical methods in the frame of the applied interdisciplinary project "Swiss circular economy model for lithium-ion batteries" (CircuBAT), assess the sustainability of material cycles by performing material flow analyses and life cycle assessments, and identify recycling potentials and optimal end-of-life options.
CircuBAT is an Innosuisse Flagship project, which involves 11 research and 24 industry partners and aims to close the loop between production, application and recycling of lithium-ion batteries for vehicles.
