  Highly Efficient Integration of Lithium Batteries to Improve Reliability and Power Density of WBG-based Medium Voltage Direct Current Converters
  Prof N Jenkins, Dr W Ming
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Emerging wide bandgap semiconductors (WBG) offer an opportunity to significantly improve the performance of power electronics converters by increasing switching frequency and reducing losses.
  Advanced cell chemistry for aluminium-based rechargeable batteries
  Prof A R Hillman, Prof K Ryder
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Batteries are of increasing importance in zero emission vehicles, mobile computing and communication, energy storage from (intermittent) renewable sources, back-up for grid failure, and operation in “off-grid” environments.
  PhD studentship opportunity in Multiscale Modelling of Lithium-sulfur Batteries
  Research Group: Automotive Engineering Research Group
  Dr T Zhang, Dr C Lekakou
Applications accepted all year round
Lithium-sulfur (Li-S) batteries hold the promise of becoming the next generation battery technology for automotive and transport applications due to its 2-3 times higher energy density than today’s lithium-ion batteries.
  PhD Studentship: Advanced Diagnostics of Batteries for Electric Vehicles
  Dr A Fly
Application Deadline: 25 February 2019
Reference number. AAE-AF-1901. Start date of studentship. April 19. Closing date of advert. 25 February 2019. Supervisors. Primary supervisor.
  In situ far-infrared spectroscopy of electrochemical interfaces within batteries
  Prof L Hardwick, Prof R J Nichols
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019
In situ spectroscopies are amongst the most important innovations for modern electrochemistry since they are able to deliver precise molecular level views of electrochemical interfaces and reactions.
  Mechanical Behaviour of solid state lithium ion batteries
  Dr D E J Armstrong, Prof P G Bruce
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Developing a solid state lithium ion battery would have a transformative impact on energy storage, particularly in the area of personal transport, especially if it can be combined with a metallic lithium anode.
  PhD Scholarship in synthesis of solid-state electrolytes for next generation batteries
  Dr M Paskevicius
Applications accepted all year round
This Research-only PhD is directed towards designing, synthesizing, and characterizing new ionic conductors to be used as solid-state electrolytes in next-generation batteries.
  Oxidic Nanomaterials for High Density Storage in Li-ion Batteries
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Hickey, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round
The oxides of a number of materials are very appealing candidates as substitutes for conventional anodes in lithium-ion batteries because of their high theoretical capacity, high electric conductivity low potential of lithium ion intercalation, as well as superior electron mobilities, with one such material, SnO2 being particularly appealing.
  Advanced batteries for hybrid vehicles: Understanding how the physico-chemical structure influences performance
  Dr A Marshall
Applications accepted all year round
Advanced lead-acid batteries for use in micro-hybrid vehicles show great potential due to their low-cost and ability to charge and discharge very rapidly.
  PhD Studentship: In-operando detection of gas evolution from lithium batteries
  Dr N Garcia-Araez, Prof P N Bartlett
Applications accepted all year round
Gas evolution is one of the most important causes of battery degradation, and a potential trigger of battery unsafe behaviour, since gas accumulation will deform the battery chasing, build a high internal pressure and potentially short the electrodes inside the battery producing high local temperatures that can cause uncontrolled thermal runaway.
