About the Project
The aim of this PhD is to research the opportunities to embed novel sensors directly within the battery cell at the point of manufacture. Potentially, this will improve overall battery performance and extend life. Further, it may be possible to quantify, in real-time, operating parameters that are currently unmeasurable using traditional sensing methods, allowing us to predict the onset of key safety events, such as thermal runaway.
Essential and desirable criteria
Applicants should have a have a minimum 2.1 undergraduate (BEng, MEng, BSc) and/or postgraduate masters’ qualification (MSc) with 65% or above in subject areas a scientific or engineering subject in which experimental or laboratory based research was a strong component. They should have:
• a good understanding of electrical and electronic engineering principles
• a good understanding of sensors, data acquisition and control
• an appreciation of electro-chemistry, the electrical properties of materials
• an interest in advanced manufacturing concepts would be advantageous.
Start Date: We would ideally like someone to start as soon as possible, but we can offer some flexibility on this - please contact us to discuss
