The Faraday Institution launched new projects in the following areas of battery research in the autumn of 2019:

--Next generation lithium-ion cathode materials

--Electrode manufacturing

--Next generation sodium-ion batteries

--Alternative cell chemistries beyond lithium-ion

Our member universities are coming to the end of hiring around 80 post-doctoral research fellows to work on these projects. We will upload these job opportunities to this page as the universities continue their search and would encourage researchers from a wide range of disciplines to revisit this page regularly during 2020.

We’d also encourage researchers to follow the Faraday Institution on LinkedIn, where we will also be posting job opportunities.

The Faraday Institution has a vibrant, collaborative and pioneering research community, working at a fast pace and tackling real-world challenges. We look forward to welcoming some of you to our community later this year!
