The School of Engineering is seeking to appoint four Research Fellows in ammonia fuel cells and related technologies. Each Research Fellow will focus on one of the following key sub-areas of ammonia fuel cells and related technologies:
You will undertake research on direct ammonia fuel cells and related technologies, pushing the technology towards commercialisation. You will undertake independent and collaborative research and will be expected to write up your research for publication. You will be expected to deal with any management/administration problems that may arise from the project and produce and present regular project reports ensuring that the project objectives and deadlines are met.
SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE
You will have a PhD (or have submitted the PhD thesis) in a relevant discipline (Materials Science & Engineering, Solid State Chemistry, Electrochemistry, Chemical Engineering). For the first research area, practical experience in technologies to make large area (10cm x 10 cm) solid oxide fuel cells is essential. All other posts require strong experience in electro-catalysts, and ideally have practical experience in ammonia oxidation reaction or nitrogen reduction reaction although this is not essential. You will have excellent verbal and written communication skills, time management and IT skills. You will possess quantitative and qualitative research skills in experimental work.
Applications from candidates in groups under-represented in the Engineering sector are particularly welcome.
The University aims to promote work life balance for all employees and the School of Engineering will consider a range of possible flexible working arrangements in order to recruit the best candidate.
If you are near submission or have recently submitted your PhD but have not yet had it conferred, any offers of employment will be made as Research Assistant at the top of level 5 of the University grade structure (£32,411). Upon receipt of evidence of the successful award of your PhD, you will be promoted to Research Fellow on the first point of level 6 of the University grade structure (£33,348).
