Research associate in graphene-based energy storage devices

Submitted by Roni Peleg on Sat, 07/25/2015 - 17:35

A job opening for work within an EPSRC-funded, cross-disciplinary team to develop next-generation, power / energy-dense super-capacitor and battery storage devices using graphene-based materials.

The job holder will also be part of a much wider team of researchers at Manchester who have been at the forefront of graphene research since its discovery in 2004. 

Applicants are to hold, or be about to obtain, a PhD in electrical engineering or electrochemistry. They must also have practical experience of using and instrumenting electrical systems, with experience in the modelling and testing of super-capacitors / batteries being a distinct advantage. They should be able to interact effectively with researchers from other disciplines and industrial partners.

The School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering is committed to promoting equality and diversity, including the Athena SWAN charter for promoting women’s careers in STEMM subjects (science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine) in higher education. It particularly welcome applications from women for this post. Appointment will always be made on merit.
