Fixed term contract for 2 years 

WMG, University of Warwick are recruiting a small team of researchers to work together to research the multidisciplinary requirements of establishing a circular economy for battery systems such as those being developed for electric vehicles and smart grid applications. The focus of the research is directly aligned with the challenge of preserving the value of products at end-of-life and keeping them in productive use for longer and will address the strategic need for accurate and easily obtained data for driving decisions for battery system recycling, remanufacturing and reuse. The research will encompass the physical demonstration of a 2nd-life battery system, including research into the underpinning control, testing and remanufacturing required for its realisation.

The successful candidates will have a unique opportunity to work across a number of research groups within WMG that collectively comprise energy materials, energy systems and sustainability research. The researcher will have full access to the extensive experimental facilities within the Energy Innovation Centre (EIC) and have the opportunity to work closely with a number of leading UK and international organisations and academic partners in collaborative research. Applicants must hold a Masters level qualification and will have undertaken complimentary research as part your PhD/EngD study. If you require further information about these positions, please contact Dr James Marco (james.marco@warwick.ac.uk)
