UCL Chemical Engineering is a world-leading centre for research in electrochemical technology. An appointment is sought for a post-doctoral researcher to develop novel diagnostic tools and process technologies to support the recycling of lithium-ion batteries. The appointment is available for up to 2 years in the first instance.
The key role of the post holder will be to perform leading research to develop techniques to assess the state-of-health and state-of-life of lithium ion batteries and assess their suitability for repurposing, recycle, etc. This will include techniques including acoustic diagnostics, electrochemical testing, 3D X-ray imaging techniques, machine vision, etc. The position will be based in the Electrochemical Innovation Lab in the Department of Chemical Engineering on the Bloomsbury campus of UCL and involve close collaboration with industry partners working on the VALUABLE Innovate UK project, as part of the Faraday Challenge.
