What you should know about the PI's mentoring style before deciding to join the group

Juner has proven himself an Ideator with clear visions in the areas of energy storage, applied mechanics, and data-driven methods. He is also a Connector who is able to link his mentees to world-leading collaborators and industrial partners.

Juner thinks how Sherlock Holmes described John Watson precisely applies to himself:

"It may be that you are not yourself luminous, but that you are a conductor of light. Some people (Watson/Juner) without possessing genius have a remarkable power of stimulating it."

Research Assistant (2 openings)

Position 1 in the area of experimental electro-chemo-mechanics. Potential projects: 1) non-destructive battery assessment, 2) optical methods for characterizing battery degradation.

Position 2 in the area of computational modeling and scientific machine learning. Potential projects: 1) interfacial failure of solid-state batteries, 2) image-based rapid assessment of batteries.

Both positions will work for the MIT-NEU Center for Battery Sustainability (CBS), which is expected to start on April 1st, 2023.
