About the role

The School of Engineering and Materials Science are seeking to develop and strengthen their internationally-regarded engineering research activity as part of the School’s on-going investment in research excellence.

We currently seek applicants with research interests that are complementary to our existing strengths in the areas of renewable and sustainable energy, within the broad themes of energy conversion and storage. These can include, but are not limited to: photovoltaics, energy harvesting (e.g. thermoelectric, piezoelectric), and electrochemical systems such as electrolysers, fuel cells, batteries, electrocatalysis and photoelectrocatalysis. Reflecting the wide range of activities in the School, applicants with expertise ranging from materials and device development through to systems engineering, including both experimental and/or computational work are welcome. The successful applicant will have a proven track record in refereed journal publications.

The School has access to high performance computing as well as state-of-the-art experimental facilities related to chemical, aeronautical and mechanical engineering, as well as materials synthesis, testing and characterisation.

Applicants should have a PhD in a relevant area with a proven track record or outstanding potential for research income generation and research achievement demonstrated through publications. A commitment to the development of a high-quality student education and experience is also essential to develop and support our taught programmes in the Sustainable Energy area.
