Post Doc in Mechanics of Batteries - Cambridge

Lithium ion batteries are prone to degradation by a range of mechanisms including dendritic formation and swell-induced fatigue and micro-cracking. The topology of the battery plays a role over a number of length scales, from macro scale geometry of battery to the microstructural scale of the mixing of the negative electrode in the electrolyte. Topology has a major effect both on performance and on the failure mechanisms.

There is a research opening for a Research Associate at the post-doctoral level (or a researcher who is soon to receive their PhD), with a working experience of solid mechanics and ideally with previous research on batteries or related electrochemical technology. The job is to develop a coupled mechanical and electrochemical model for battery performance and degradation.

The key responsibilities and duties are to conduct numerical research into the mechanics of batteries. The role holder is also expected take part in collaborative work, and contribute to seminars, and to take part in the research group’s activities publish in the open literature and liaise with the sponsors.

The success full candidate must have obtained or be close to obtaining a PhD in Mechanical Engineering or a related subjects. Must have some research experience, and a publication record.

Salary Ranges: * Research Assistant: £25,298 - £30,175 *Research Associate: £30,175 – £38,183
