Electrochemical energy storage, involving batteries, electrolysers, and fuel cells, is the key enabling technology for the electricity grid of the future with its increasing share in renewables, and also for the electrification of transport. Energy Lancaster is creating three new lecturer posts, addressing scientific aspects of energy storage on three different scales: New Materials, Battery Systems Engineering, and Energy Storage System Dynamics. 

Candidates are expected to have a strong and growing international reputation, evidenced by excellent international publications in leading journals and collaboration with industrial and academic groups.

Energy Lancaster as a centre provides a thriving community of energy storage researchers at Lancaster University in the Departments of Chemistry and Engineering, the Lancaster Environment Centre, the School of Computing, the Management School, and in the recently launched Materials Science Institute. The appointees will also be able to draw upon Energy Lancaster’s local and global network of collaborators. Teaching duties will be kept low in the first two years to allow for an efficient ramp-up of research infrastructure and team.

Details of all three posts (A1622, A1625, A1626) can be found online at https://hr-jobs.lancs.ac.uk/Vacancies.aspx. Please also submit your application online via that site.

If you are interested in any of these posts we invite you to contact Professor Harry Hoster, Director of Energy Lancaster (h.hoster@lancaster.ac.uk).

Deadline: 31st August

Salary: £33,574 to £46,414
