Research Associate

University College London - Department of Chemical Engineering

UCL Chemical Engineering is a world-leading centre for research in electrochemical technology, an appointment is sought for a post-doctoral researcher to develop novel membrane technologies and apply diagnostic and materials characterisation techniques to understand their modes of operation. The appointment is available for up to 2 years in the first instance.

The key role of the post holder will be to perform leading research to investigate the physical and  electrochemical properties of membrane materials for applications in electrochemical technology: this will include the development and application of advanced 3D X-ray imaging techniques. The position will be based in the Electrochemical Innovation Lab ( ) in the Department of Chemical Engineering on the Bloomsbury campus of UCL and involve close collaboration with EPSRC funded project partners at the University of Manchester and University of Newcastle.

This is a unique opportunity for a dynamic and ambitious experimental researcher with interests in imaging techniques, fuel cells, energy materials and electrochemistry to undertake a research position as part of a leading team of researchers from UCL, Manchester and Newcastle.  The successful candidate will have significant experience in a research environment: knowledge of X-ray microscopy and other material characterisation techniques is a strong advantage as is experience of working with electrochemical or energy materials.

You should hold (or soon expect to obtain) a PhD in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science or a closely related discipline. You must be motivated, independent and hard-working with a strong research/technical background in areas relevant to this project: materials and electrode processing, electrochemical methods, materials characterisation. Peer reviewed publications in relevant fields are a requirement.
