The Faraday Institution is the UK’s new, independent, national institute for battery research. It will drive and accelerate fundamental research in developing battery technologies, and its translation. Funded through the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the government’s Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF), the Faraday Institution is part of coordinated activity between Innovate UK and EPSRC to meet the Faraday Battery Challenge, announced by the government in July 2017, of delivering an integrated programme of research, innovation and the scale-up of novel battery technologies.
The Institution is now looking to appoint a Head of Global Analytics as part of its inaugural senior team. The Head of Global Analytics will ensure that the Faraday Institution is seen as the UK’s definitive voice on battery technology and its impact on the economy and society. They will achieve this through gathering global intelligence and conducting rigorous analysis of other countries’ activities and intentions in battery research, and also through developing a global model on battery fundamentals covering supply, demand and cost.
