About the Project
The proposed PhD project is on lithium-sulphur batteries. It will involve experimental developments of novel separator interlayers and electrolyte systems which will be optimised after computational modelling. The project will also involve battery cell fabrication and testing, and material characterisation pre-cell testing, in operando during cell testing and post-mortem after the cell has been cycled a certain number of times. The candidate should have computational modelling skills and computer programming knowledge, as well as experimental skills.
This is a 3 year project, commencing in October 2020.
· A relevant BSc/BEng or MSc/MEng degree. first or upper second class, in engineering, physics or chemistry.
· Non-native speakers of English who did not study in an English-speaking country will be required to have IELTS 6.5 or above, or other equivalent proof of qualification in English language.
