University of Nottingham – PhD role 2020: Development of beyond lithium-ion batteries, School of Chemistry, University of Nottingham

Reference: SCI1928

Closing Date: 14th April 2020

Supervised by Dr Lee Johnson


Research focuses on

  1. Understanding the chemistry that underpins advanced batteries and how this knowledge can be used to unlock a new generation of energy storage technologies for electrification of the automotive sector.
  2. The target is to enable alternative, sustainable technologies that can supersede the lithium-ion battery and the research group maintains active programs in Magnesium batteries, Na-ion batteries, Li-air batteries and Lithium-sulfur batteries.
  3. To address these challenges combines materials chemistry and electrochemistry and is delivered in collaboration with leading stakeholders in the energy storage sector.

Fellowship Details: Starting in the academic year 2020/2021, a funded PhD studentship (UK or EU national) is available studying the reaction chemistry in beyond lithium-ion batteries. The role will focus on electrochemical and in situ analysis of the chemical reactions that underpin these new technologies. The applicant will gain an expertise in battery development and electrochemistry, which are vital for many of the UKs emerging industries.

Qualification  / Requirements: 

  1. An enthusiastic graduate with a 1st class degree at Masters level in materials science, chemistry, chemical engineering, physics or a relevant discipline,


  1. An equivalent overseas degree (a 2:1 degree can be considered). The role is open to UK and EU Students.
