Newman Research Scientist Fellowship - 91905Organization: ED-Energy Storage & Distributed ResourcesBerkeley Lab’s Energy Storage & Distributed Resources (ESDR) Division invites applications for the John S. Newman Research Scientist Fellowship to support exceptional early career researchers who demonstrate leadership and strong research capabilities aimed at improving energy storage technologies and a demonstrated commitment to related issues affecting underserved communities.The John S. Newman Fellowship recognizes the contributions and industry advancements of globally renowned battery researcher and the University of California Professor, John S. Newman, developer of “The Newman Method”, a sophisticated approach to mathematically analyzing complex electrochemical programs. Dr. Newman clarified the physicochemical laws that govern the behavior of electrochemical systems and demonstrated how to use these laws to correctly formulate and solve programs associated with batteries, fuel cells, electrolyzers, and related technologies.Newman Fellows are initially appointed for 1 year, renewable to a maximum of two additional years (total 3-year appointment), and/or have the ability to convert to career appointment based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds, and ongoing operational needs. Appointments are anticipated to start in late spring or early summer of 2021. Appointees will receive an annual research supplement of $10,000 for professional development activities and $25,000 per year for supplies.For more information on the John S.
