Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 2 years in the first instance.
Applications are invited for up to four post-doctoral research associate to work in the group led by Professor Clare P. Grey on the development and characterisation of rechargeable battery materials.
The project will involve the use of standard and elaborated (e.g. spark plasma sintering, SPS) synthesis and various techniques for characterisation, e.g. powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), electron microscopy (SEM/TEM), and solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. Projects could involve the study of redox flow, lithium air, sodium and all solid-state batteries.
Applicants must have (or be about to obtain) a PhD in inorganic/materials chemistry or other related areas. Previous experience in either solid-state NMR spectroscopy/magnetic resonance imaging (as applied to inorganic materials), ionic liquids, or electrochemistry (of batteries fuel cells) is essential. Experience with operando/in-situ methods (such as Raman, IR, TEM), and/or solid state batteries, is desirable. Ability to work in teams is desirable.
