Physics, Chemistry, Materials Scientists in Cambridgeshire

The role involves the formulation of inks and pastes of novel battery materials, fabrication of test devices, and the characterisation of these devices with a range of optical and electrical techniques.


Preparation of redox material inks and pastes for device fabrication.

Fabrication of devices using solution casting, lamination, vacuum deposition, and printing techniques, to support the evaluation of new redox materials and the development of improved thin and flexible batteries.

Closely working with other members of the team, develop improved redox material formulations and improved processes for battery fabrication, with the aim to increase performance, reproducibility, and yield.

Provide regular feedback on materials behaviour, the fabrication process, and any issues which may impact on device performance and reproducibility. Where possible, suggest improvements and resolutions.

Accurately log the details of the fabrication process, using agreed databases.

Support the materials development program by characterizing the ionic, electrical and mechanical properties of battery materials as required.

Prepare written reports of any investigations undertaken, and present the results as required.


Engineering, Chemistry, Physics, or Materials science graduate, preferably with some experience in a high tech R&D or manufacturing environment.

Willingness to perform repetitive tasks such as repeated fabrication of baseline devices, as required.

Ideally, experienced in process optimisation and Design-of-Experiments.

Ideally, experienced in electrochemistry and/or battery or supercapacitor technology.

Self-motivated, able to solve technical problems under one’s own initiative, with a willingness to seek expert assistance when required.

Experience of working with computer-controlled analytical and fabrication equipment.

Experience of printing technologies would be a distinct advantage.

Experience of working in a clean room environment would be an advantage.

Experience of microscopy and other thin film metrology would be an advantage.
