Presidential Academic Fellowship: Energy Storage and Batteries
Presidential Academic Fellowship: Energy storage and batteries
Faculty of Science and Engineering
The University of Manchester
Creative, ambitious and keen to develop transformative research, you will relish this excellent opportunity to drive your academic career to a higher level. As an impressive early career academic, you’ll recognise that securing a Presidential Academic Fellowship at the University of Manchester will empower you to unlock your potential. In addition to a good salary for the duration of your Fellowship, you’ll receive several thousand pounds per annum for research support costs and access to key technology platforms. While you’ll be expected to dedicate some time to teaching, most of your time will be free to pursue outstanding research of international excellence. You can look forward to mentoring and assistance in winning external funding and awards.
As a Presidential Academic Fellow, you will join a Faculty with a pioneering heritage - from Rutherford splitting the atom, to Turing helping to develop the world’s first computer, and the team which isolated graphene. Marrying brilliant science, engineering excellence and world-leading research, with a focus on the needs of industry, we are a leading knowledge partner underpinning the economy. We’re particularly keen to hear from you if you have an interest in energy storage and batteries. Both the automotive and aerospace sectors are undergoing a technological transformation. This brings significant challenges, but also an opportunity for the UK to lead. You will help us to build on and expand our existing strengths in 2D materials (2DM), composites, 2DM-based super-capacitors, integration of energy storage systems, and power trains.
To join us, you will need a relevant PhD or equivalent qualification. You’ll bring to the role a sustained record of publication output. Crucially, you will demonstrate the ability to develop a coherent world-leading research programme, with new concepts and ideas to extend intellectual understanding. You have what it takes to organise resources and deliver results to deadlines. Your excellent communication and interpersonal skills also equip you to build a team, and to inspire and engage students. The determination to win your own funding will be key to your success.
