Job description

This role will be within the Centre for Low-Carbon Propulsion Systems (C-ALPS). You will join a newly created research centre with high levels of industry engagement. This is an exciting opportunity for you to significantly expand your technical research skills within the strategically important area of energy storage, in particular supporting activities in development of lithium ion batteries and electrochemical energy storage.

We are looking for an experienced engineer to help develop State of Health assessment for automotive modules. There are four parallel tasks within the project:

  • Disassemble automotive packs to base modules
  • Use pulse power and capacity analysis to grade the state of health of modules
  • Use Impedance Spectroscopy to analyse the state of health of modules
  • Use Impedance Spectroscopy to get an indication of the State of Health of cells within the modules.

You will hold a PhD level qualification, and have undertaken relevant post-doctoral research as part your background and be able to demonstrate appropriate industrial experience in energy storage materials.

You will need to share our passion for delivering a positive student experience that puts excellence in teaching and learning at the heart of everything we do and will be able to demonstrate significant knowledge in your area of specialisation to support the centre's research culture.

Successful candidates will become an active member of C-ALPS.  As such you will actively contribute to research groups or communities of practice internally and externally, assisting with bids and tenders for external projects or contracts. You will also disseminate research outputs and develop external networks nationally and internationally.

In return we will provide you with a great range of benefits which include an attractive pension scheme, 38 days holiday plus bank holiday, some fantastic savings on a wide range of products and services, and excellent learning and development opportunities.
