英国兰卡斯特大学2022年招聘博士后职位(新型电池研发)

兰卡斯特大学(Lancaster University),简称兰卡,建于1964年,是一所位于英国英格兰西北部兰开夏郡的研究型大学,享有良好的学术声誉,属于平板玻璃大学,是N8大学联盟、欧洲大学协会、英联邦大学协会成员,拥有兰卡斯特大学管理学院(LUMS)以及环境科学学院,语言学系、法学院等。

Research Associate

Lancaster University

Description

This 12 month post is funded by EPSRC's Impact Accelerator programme and will deliver knowledge to expedite the commercial and environmental impact of novel battery technology. It will do so in collaboration with 2 key industrial partners (LiNa Energy, https: // www. lina.energy/, and Victrex, https: // www. victrex.com/en/)

LiNa are a young and rapidly expanding SME who are developing a novel battery system that seeks to replace Li-based technologies across a wide range of high capacity energy storage applications. Their innovative battery configuration has the potential to achieve this, enabled by higher energy densities, lower cost and greatly improved safety (minimal fire risk) compared to competitor technologies. However, in a fast moving market it is essential that LiNa can rapidly progress to a working prototype. A current stumbling block is the development of a material and design for operationally-critical, electrically- insulating end caps to hold the battery cells together, with high reliability, at elevated temperatures (up to 300°C).

The researcher on this project will seek to identify and understand the operational limits for high temperature polymers (PEEK and variants) for delivering these components, utilising additive manufacturing (FDM), as a means to rapidly develop components for evaluation and testing, from a range of PEEK and PEEK composite materials. Component testing at temperature will be required and the researcher will lead the design and implementation of accelerated high temperature compression tests to help characterise in-service performance. This exciting project will be supported throughout by LiNa, who will offer design advice, assistance with testing and in-service trials, and it is expected that the researcher will spend some of their time at LiNa's laboratories (also based in Lancaster). Engagement with Victrex, a world- leading producer of PEEK, is also key. They will provide materials and technical support for existing and emerging PEEK materials and support and advice for additive manufacturing and post-process heat treatments.

We are looking for someone with good experience of additive manufacturing (FDM), CAD, materials testing and the modelling of the deformation of materials. The post will give the researcher the opportunity not only to develop multi-disciplinary research skills, but to gain experience and work closely with 2 industry-leading partners.

Lancaster University is consistently highly-ranked (~top 10) in the UK university league tables and is in the top 1% of universities globally. It is located on a beautiful campus in the North West of England close to the stunning Lake District National Park.

You should have a PhD in mechanical engineering, manufacturing or materials science, or an MEng / MSc in the same disciplines and relevant industrial experience.

The School of Engineering is committed to family-friendly and flexible working policies on an individual basis, as well as the Athena SWAN Charter, which recognises and celebrates good employment practice undertaken to address equality issues in higher education and research, and we warmly welcome applications from people in all diversity groups.

This is a full time post. You will join us on an indefinite contract however, the role remains contingent on external funding which, at this time, is for 12 months.

Informal e-mail enquiries prior to making an application are welcome, in which case contact Professor Andrew Kennedy (a.kennedy3@lancaster.ac.uk)
