We are seeking to recruit a highly motivated and enthusiastic research fellow to work with our organic battery team and with our industrial collaborators. The candidate will work within the Nottingham Applied Materials and Interfaces Group (www.thenamilab.com) at the University of Nottingham. Our research focuses on understanding the chemistry that underpins advanced energy systems and how this knowledge can be used to unlock a new generation of energy storage technologies for electrification of the automotive sector. The target is to enable alternative, sustainable technologies that can supersede the lithium-ion battery and the group maintains active research programmes in lithium-ion batteries, magnesium batteries, lithium-air batteries and lithium-sulfur batteries. Our approach to address these challenges spans synthetic chemistry, electrochemistry and device development and is delivered in collaboration with leading stakeholders in the energy storage sector.
The role will start during the academic year 2023/2024 and will seek to develop a new class of organic cathodes to support sustainable, high power batteries. The role will combine organic synthesis, electrochemistry, device development and in situ analysis of the chemical reactions that underpin these new technologies. We encourage ambitious applications from any field of chemistry.
This is a full-time (36.25 hour), fixed-term post and is available for a period of 24 months.
