Postdoctoral Research Associate in Next-Generation Cathode Materials

University of Oxford

We are looking for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to carry out research on next-generation cathode materials for Li ion batteries, with expertise, proven by a strong publication record, in one or preferably more of the following areas:

  • Cathode material synthesis (including solid-state, co-precipitation, sol-gel, mechanochemical)
  • Electrochemistry (including cycling, CV, DEMS and cell)
  • Neutron and X-ray techniques (including diffraction, PDF, XANES and RIXS)
  • In-situ and operando techniques

With a background in the field of materials chemistry, you will be a well organised and self-motivated scientist, with the ability to manage the day-to-day running of a research project.

You will have (or be close to completion of) a relevant PhD and appropriate specialist knowledge in the discipline, as well as excellent communication and writing skills.

As part of the Faraday Institution’s 


project, we are investigating the chemistry and electrochemistry of Li ion cathode materials, in particular those displaying anionic redox.

All applications must be made online using the Oxford University E-Recruitment system, no later than 12 noon on 7 July 2023. You will be required to upload a CV and a Supporting Statement as part of your application.  Please do not attach any manuscripts, papers, transcripts, mark sheets or certificates as these will not be considered as part of your application.
