Research positions relating to future Energy Technologies

We have several openings for postdoctoral researchers to join an established, leading edge team addressing key challenges to deliver a future low carbon energy system.

We are looking for skilled scientists and engineers eager to apply their skills and to obtain a broader understanding of the underpinning energy solutions.

These projects relate to understanding the electrical characteristics of hydrogen production, new approaches to electrodes for use in low temperature electrolysis, exploring proton conducting ceramics for production of chemicals from CO2, direct ammonia fuel cells and battery materials chemistry.

These positions are available for early start.

The available roles:

  1. Development of Exsolution Materials for use in Alkaline Electrolysis Electrodes. (One position is available for up to 2 years).
  2. Development of Systems Based upon Mixed Ion Conductors for Olefin production from CO2. (Two positions are available for up to 18 months each).
  3. Development of Proton Conducting Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Systems for Ammonia Conversion in Marine Demonstration. (One position is available for up to 12 months).
  4. A novel method for black mass extraction from used Lithium-Ion cells and refining the material to go back into new cells. (One position is available for up to 12 months).

We would expect you to have a PhD in Chemistry, Materials, Physics or Engineering. Experience relevant to some of the following is highly desirable: energy materials synthesis, electrochemistry, electrical engineering, data science, electron microscopy, materials processing and characterization.
