Postdoctoral Research Associate in Solid-State Batteries

Department of Materials, Parks Road, Oxford

As part of the Faraday Institution's SOLBAT project, we aim to break down the barriers that are preventing the progression to market of solid-state batteries. This is an exciting opportunity to join the team as a Postdoctoral Research Associate, carrying out research on solid-state batteries, with expertise, proven by a strong publication record, in one or preferably more of the following areas:

  • Solid-state materials chemistry,

  • Solid-state electrochemistry (including EIS and electrochemical modelling),

  • Characterisation of air and beam sensitive materials and interfaces in solid-state batteries including:

  • In-situ, operando and ex-situ techniques (X-ray and neutron, computed X-ray tomography, spectroscopy)

  • Electron microscopy (eg FIB/SEM, EDX and sample preparation)

  • With a background in the field of solid-state batteries, you will be a well organised and self-motivated scientist, with the ability to manage the day-to- day running of a research project. You will have (or be close to completion of) a relevant PhD and appropriate specialist knowledge in the discipline, as well as excellent communication and writing skills. This position will be offered on a fixed-term basis for 12 months.
