Job Summary

The post is a fixed term Research Fellow position funded by the research grant “Recycling and Reuse of EV batteries (ReLiB)” that is provided by the Faraday Institution, the UK’s independent institute for electrochemical energy storage research and skills development. The Faraday Institution vision is to bring together scientists and industry partners on research projects to reduce battery cost, weight, and volume; to improve performance and reliability (The Faraday Institution - Powering Britain’s Battery Revolution).

The overall aim of the ReLiB project (ReLiB – Sustainable Management of Lithium-ion Batteries) is to understand the conditions required to ensure the sustainable management of lithium-ion batteries when they reach the end of their useful life in electric vehicles. This will enhance the overall efficiency of the supply chain and ensure that the UK has the facilities required for safe, economic and environmentally sound management of the materials contained in lithium-ion batteries.

Researchers at the University of Birmingham will be investigating separation technology efficiency, and characterisation of separated lithium-ion battery fractions, in addition to closing the loop of these material streams through manufacturing efforts and electrochemical testing.

Person Specification

  • A first degree in Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science or related subject, and a PhD (or close to completion) in an area relevant to materials recycling or battery manufacture, mineral engineering or chemical engineering or equivalent qualifications
  • Prior knowledge, experience and achievements in physical processing of wastes, electrode manufacture and electrochemical testing protocols for batteries is highly desirable. However training will be given to the right candidate in these areas.

Informal enquires can be made to Professor Emma Kendrick, email: E.Kendrick@bham.ac.uk
