Lecturer in Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage

University College London - Department of Chemical Engineering

The Chemical Engineering Department at UCL is seeking to appoint a highly motivated Lecturer with expertise in electrochemical energy conversion and storage.

The successful candidate will be joining an expanding and forward-looking Department that is committed to the highest standards of teaching and research: we aim to develop significant advances in fundamental knowledge and to pioneer new technologies that deliver impact.

The Department is host to the Electrochemical Innovation Lab (EIL) ( www.ucl.ac.uk/eil ), a world-leading centre for research in electrochemical technology and home to more than 40 researchers. The EIL complex was substantially extended and renovated in 2016 and is exceptionally well equipped for a broad range of electrochemical experimentation and modelling studies.

As well as leading collaborative research activities, the candidate will be expected to engage with industrial and other partners to develop our translational research agenda. Teaching and administration duties will be allocated within the present departmental degree programmes in Chemical Engineering, which include BEng, MEng, MSc and PhD.

The ideal candidate will have an outstanding track record in electrochemical science and technology and have teaching experience in chemical engineering or a cognate discipline. A first degree and a PhD in Chemical Engineering or related discipline are required. The candidate is expected to develop and lead a world-leading programme of research and to attract funding to support this.
