    Vehicle Materials Life Cycle Analysis: Energy Systems Division, Argonne National Laboratory

    Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) has been conducting assessments of advanced vehicle technologies and new transportation fuels over the last 25 years. In recent years, ANL has worked closely with auto, and energy industries, as well as governmental agencies, to evaluate energy and environmental effects of advanced vehicle technologies and new transportation fuels. The GREET (Greenhouse gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy use in Transportation) model is developed at Argonne. It estimates energy use and emissions on a life-cycle basis for conventional and alternative vehicle/fuel systems. The GREET model has more than 20,000 registered users worldwide, including academia, industry, and regulatory agencies.

    For more information about the GREET model, see http://greet.es.anl.gov/.

    ANL continues to assess conventional and advanced vehicle technologies for their energy and environmental effects. Current research efforts for the assessment of advanced vehicle technologies include advanced spark-ignition and compression-ignition internal combustion engine vehicles, hybrid electric vehicles, fuel-cell vehicles and plug-in electric vehicles. New and lightweight materials for improved vehicle efficiency are current research subjects, as is the examination of battery production.

    The candidate will examine life-cycle energy consumption and environmental impacts from the production of conventional, electric, and other vehicles and their component parts. Specifically, the candidate will examine a number of materials either currently used or under consideration for use in vehicle lightweighting. Lightweighting has been identified as a primary means for meeting upcoming federal CAFE requirements (34.1 mpg by 2016, 54.5 mpg by 2025), but it is important to consider lightweighting from a systems perspective, thus including not only the vehicle efficiency benefits, but also the potential increases in vehicle cycle burdens. Additionally, the candidate will research the production of component parts and assembly of lithium-ion batteries, including the metal compounds that comprise battery active materials. To carry out this research, the candidate will work with data sources in the literature and interact with government, industry, and non-profit groups to obtain additional data.

    The candidate will employ and expand upon Argonne National Laboratory’s GREET model in their work.

    Qualified individuals should have a Ph.D. in materials, chemical, mechanical, or environmental engineering, natural resource science or other related areas and be familiar with energy and environmental impacts of material and vehicle production. A good knowledge of lithium-ion batteries is also desirable.

    Candidates should have computer programming skills in MS Excel and Visual Basic. Good oral and written communication skills are also required.

    Argonne National Laboratory is an equal opportunity employer and we value diversity in our work force.

    For further information, contact Dr. Jarod Kelly at (630) 252-6579 or at jckelly@anl.gov.
