PDRA in Battery Diagnostics


£34,635 to £41,864 per annum (includes London Allowance)


Dr Paul Shearing

UCL Chemical Engineering is a world-leading centre for research in electrochemical technology, looking for a post-doctoral researcher to develop novel diagnostic tools to understand the operation of Li-ion batteries for application in electric vehicles. 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 investigate the physical and electrochemical properties of Li-ion batteries: this will include the development and application of advanced 3D X-ray imaging techniques, image analysis and modelling tools, and the development of novel acoustic spectroscopy tools. 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 EPSRC funded project partners at the Universities of Oxford, Warwick and Imperial College.

This is a unique opportunity for an ambitious experimental researcher with interests in advanced batteries, imaging techniques, and acoustic techniques to undertake a research position as part of a leading team of researchers from UCL, Oxford, Warwick and Imperial College. The successful candidate will have significant experience in a research environment: knowledge of X-ray imaging, electrochemical testing and acoustic techniques is a strong advantage as is experience of working with advanced batteries.
