A state-of-the-art R&D laboratory facility supporting the development and testing of novel battery designs is now looking for a Materials Scientist -Thin Film. This role is based within the Energy Storage Team, to drive development of Processes pioneered in research through to pilot scale manufacture. Initially the role would be developing cost-effective manufacturing routes for battery active materials, both cathode and anode.


The Materials Scientist - Thin Film Will:

  • Develop deep understanding of key processes related to plasma-wall interaction and sputtering mechanisms
  • Research alternative and parallel technology methods to achieve the same aim.
  • Identify potential methods of manufacture whereby significant cost or quality improvements could be realised.
  • Cooperate with partners and collaborators on development projects for the prototyping and engineering of equipment.
  • Prove the production intent solution and create suitable documentation prior to handover to the manufacturing teams and partners.
  • Demonstrate proposed solutions are safe, robust, cost effective and fit-for-purpose for a high-volume manufacturing environment.


The Materials Scientist - Thin Film Will Have:

  • A degree in a scientific or engineering discipline in the field of thin film deposition or plasma physics.
  • Experience in developing Vacuum deposition, especially sputtering and evaporation processes within an industrial or research-based setting.
  • Experience of taking a product/idea/process from research (early phase) through to prototype.
  • Experience with managing Stakeholders including demonstrated decision influencing.
  • Product & process engineering for quality & value with demonstrated improvements.
  • Good understanding of the safety aspects of the proposed processes, and how these change with scale.
  • Battery material development experience is highly desirable.
