WMG is a vibrant, cutting-edge research institution at the University of Warwick. We currently have a great opportunity for an Assistant Professor to join the Cell Instrumentation Team to conduct research in the area of battery safety. This research will help construct sensor systems to instrument cells, providing an in-depth understanding of their operation during both normal and abuse conditions.

The role will involve sensor instrumentation, lithium-ion cell characterisation, development of control algorithms and knowledge of diagnosis systems. We are looking for an experienced researcher to study cell performance, and develop the hardware and software required to evaluate cell performance. Development of novel sensing methods may include, for example but not constrained to, internal temperature sensors, gas characterisation and current sensing. This will encompass the operation of these lithium-ion cells throughout their lifetime, to better characterise safety requirements as the cells age.

All aspects of health and safety during the development and operation of lithium-ion battery technologies may be studied and used to characterise cell performance. Test fixtures, experiment methodologies and bespoke interfaces will need to be developed to deploy instrumented cells in a range of performance tests.

We will provide a great range of benefits which include an attractive pension scheme, 30 days holiday plus bank holidays and Christmas closure, some fantastic savings on a wide range of products and services, and excellent learning and development opportunities.

At WMG we are committed to supporting staff to achieve their potential. We currently hold the Athena SWAN Silver Award and the University of Warwick holds an Institutional Silver Award: a national initiative that recognises the advancement of gender equality, representation, progression and success for all in academia. We are supportive of staff with caring responsibilities including a generous maternity/paternity/adoption/parental leave policy, and onsite childcare facilities. We will consider applications for employment on a part-time or other flexible working basis, even where a position is advertised as full-time, unless there are operational or other objective reasons why it is not possible to do so.
