Within WMG’s Energy Innovation Centre – one of Europe’s largest battery research centres – the battery testing and characterisation research group specialises in multidisciplinary research into techniques that deliver a deeper and more comprehensive understanding of the behaviour of energy storage technologies. Our research covers all aspects of energy system development from materials, individual cells, through to complete battery packs. The group has an exciting opportunity for a creative, ambitious and flexible person looking to join the rapidly evolving area of battery research.

We are currently looking for a Project Engineer or Research Fellow to focus on Distributed Optical Fibre Sensing Analyser Development. The successful candidate will possess a successful track record gained through either an industrial or academic career, in the following areas: optics, electronics, and optoelectronics engineering, optical fibre, and collaborative working within multidisciplinary projects. It is important that candidates have good experience or a deep interest in the fields of: optics, electronics, and optical fibre sensing and are able to evidence their capability in a subset of the following areas:

• Knowledge of optical fibre sensing systems, such as distributed or semi-distributed optical fibre sensing.
• Knowledge of optics, optical fibre, electronics and optoelectronics system design.
• Familiar with a range of optics and electronics equipment.
• Optics, optical fibre, electrical engineering, electronics, sensors
