You will be expected to build up battery test facilities, supported by advanced non-destructive testing and analytical techniques. Depending on your background, the activities can either focus on a detailed understanding of individual battery cells or on the electrical and thermal management of battery packs. Design and prototyping of new concepts would be welcomed.
You are expected to have a strong and growing international reputation, evidenced by excellent international publications in leading journals and collaboration with industrial and academic groups.
Practical demonstration of the technologies and solutions will be an essential part of the role. Lancaster University is a self-contained campus that provides a “living lab” where research into energy systems can be undertaken at scale.
You will join a thriving community of energy storage researchers at Lancaster University in the Departments of Engineering and Chemistry, in the recently launched Materials Science Institute and in the Data Science Institute. You will also be able to draw upon Energy Lancaster’s local and global network of collaborators. Teaching duties (in the Department of Engineering) will be low in the first two years to allow for an efficient ramp-up of research infrastructure and team.
If you are interested in this post we invite you to contact Professor Harry Hoster, Director of Energy Lancaster firstname.lastname@example.org +44-1524-510316).
We welcome applications from people in all diversity groups.
