We are seeking an individual with a background in transmission electron microscopy, electrochemistry or energy storage. The Faraday Institution is a new, research institute funded by the EPSRC that will drive and accelerate fundamental research into developing battery technologies. The recently developed method of operando electrochemical scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) will be employed to study the fundamental processes that lead to battery degradation and to develop processes that can be used to recycle Li battery components. The goal is to make transformative advances in battery development by using the unique direct visualisation capabilities of the STEM to directly identify and quantify the key electrochemical processes dominating the performance of energy storage systems. You should have a PhD (or about to obtain) in Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science, or a related field. The post is available until 31 March 2021.

Join the Faraday Institution at an exciting time as we continue to grow a dynamic and diverse community of pioneering researchers, as we race to discover the next generation of battery technology. Our mission is to accelerate scientific breakthroughs to benefit the UK in the global race to electrification. Faraday Institution Research Fellows have access to multiple networking and collaboration opportunities, quality facilities and training.

Closing date: 24 January 2020
