The College of Surrey is a world group of concepts and other people, devoted to life-changing training and analysis. We have now a daring imaginative and prescient of what we need to obtain – shaping ourselves into among the finest universities on the planet, which we’re attaining via the abilities and endeavour of each worker.  

Our tradition empowers individuals to realize this goal and to collectively to make an actual distinction.  

The function

We wish to appoint a Analysis Fellow to strengthen our collaborations with Ceres Energy, a number one developer of unpolluted power expertise based mostly on stable oxide cells for power era and hydrogen manufacturing, with over 600 workers. The Put up Doctoral Analysis Fellow (PDRA) could have alternative to work with the R&D staff at Ceres Energy to achieve insights into the applied sciences and commercialisation, collaborate with researchers at Imperial School London, and use superior imaging services and a 3D pore-scale lattice Boltzmann mannequin on the College of Surrey.

The put up can be based mostly inside the College of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering (SCCE) on the College of Surrey, and could have alternative to work together with a vibrant Sustainable Power and Supplies analysis staff with 15 teachers and greater than 50 PhD and postdoc researchers. 

  • The Sustainable Power and Supplies staff on the College of Surrey has a robust background within the design, synthesis, optimisation and software of superior useful supplies for power conversion and storage. 
  • The analysis group has particular pursuits in multiscale supplies and course of modelling mixed with experimental approaches for quite a lot of sustainable electrochemical applied sciences together with gasoline cells, electrolysers, and batteries.  

The College of Surrey was awarded The College of The Yr for Graduate Employment. You’ll profit from the wonderful help and coaching alternatives for profession growth, together with varied be-spoke coaching workshops and one-to-one mentoring scheme.

About you

We’re searching for a extremely motivated researcher with stable analysis expertise in any or each of the next areas: 

(1) utilizing the mesoscale computational strategies (finite quantity, finite aspect, or lattice Boltzmann) for modelling 3D porous electrodes of gasoline cells, batteries, or electrolysers; 

(2) utilizing 3D X-ray or FIB-SEM tomography for reconstructing the 3D electrode microstructures. 

Candidates should maintain (or be near completion of) a PhD in Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Physics, Civil Engineering or different related main levels. 

The way to apply

Candidates ought to apply on-line, rigorously reply all the appliance kind questions, and fasten a curriculum vitae (with particulars on training, analysis experiences, successes and the related publications to this point).
