A state-of-the-art R&D laboratory facility supporting the development and testing of novel battery designs is now looking for a Lead Battery Cell Engineer. In this position you will join a team of electrochemists, mechanical and electronic engineers where your focus will be on the development of novel battery cell designs.

The Lead Battery Cell Engineer Will: 

  • Have an understanding of energy storage requirements to develop custom cells, enabling the next generation of products.
  • Use a combination of practical experience, modelling and theoretical knowledge to optimise electrode design and prototyping.
  • Analyse electrodes utilising both physical and electrochemical characterisation.
  • Work within a team to scale electrode designs from small scale batches to prototype cells. Utilising process insight and applied knowledge you will facilitate an accurate and efficient transfer of process.

 

The Lead Battery Cell Engineer Will Have: 

  • A PhD/Eng.D degree in a physical science, chemistry or engineering discipline relevant to electrochemical cell research and development.
  • Experience developing lithium-ion/lithium metal technology, applying key electrochemical techniques including galvanostatic cycling, voltammetry and EIS to drive improvement and understanding of cell performance.
  • Comprehensive understanding of critical battery materials, including key trends and developments.
  • Substantial experience in the development of alternative electrolyte systems (such as gel, polymer, solid-state etc.) and clear understanding of the challenges.
  • Robust knowledge of material and electrode characterisation, including particle size distribution, SEM, BET, DSC/TGA, XRD, porosimetry, ionic and electronic conductivity analysis and electrode expansion.
  • Extensive experience of cell failure mode analysis.
  • Experience of scaling cell design and production methods from small scale to pilot prototype is desirable.
  • Ability to use Matlab/Python for data-processing automation.
