Battery Test Technician
An exciting opportunity exists for an ambitious battery scientist/engineer with experience in cell testing to join the Electrochemistry Group. You will be part of a team developing advanced diagnostic techniques and standard test methods for characterisation of high energy density batteries to support improvements in their performance, lifetime and safety.
Working closely with our partners in academia and industry, you will participate in collaborative research projects at the cutting edge of the field, supported by the UK Faraday Battery Challenge and the European Commission. You will also play a key role in building internal collaborations, developing in situ diagnostic techniques with world-leading scientists from other disciplines, including temperature measurement, surface chemistry, electromagnetics, dimensional measurement and acoustics. The initial focus of the research will be on conventional Li-ion batteries for automotive applications, but going forward there will also be opportunities to work one merging technologies such as Na-ion, Li-S and metal-air batteries for a range of applications.
Advancing your research skills, you will develop close links with industrial and academic organisations and have the opportunity to present your research at international meetings. Adaptability, an enquiring mind, and an enthusiasm for exploring new directions will be key attributes. Good presentation skills and an eagerness to promote your research are essential.
" Understanding of cell design and state-of-the-art materials in Li-ion cells
" Experience with test activities for cell characterisation and diagnostics
" Familiarity with test equipment (e.g. MACCOR,ARBIN, CHORMA and AVL) including test fixtures, test procedures, international standards and customer requirements/specification
" Experience in development of fast charging algorithms
" Working knowledge of reduced-order models for BMS development
" Experience with Matlab, Simulink and Python
" Automotive/grid scale energy storage experience and familiarity with thermal/CFD/mechanical modelling at cell, module and pack scale (ANSYS, ABAQUS or similar tools) would be advantageous
" A degree in a relevant science or engineering discipline and experience in evaluation and testing of commercial Li-ion cells(preferably in an industrial setting) are required.
