School of Chemistry, Salary: £33,797 - £36,914 per annum, Start Date: As soon as possible, Fixed Term for up to 48 months depending upon funder

The University of St Andrews is seeking four materials chemists, preferably with experience in battery technologies, as part of a project funded through the Faraday Institution (www.faraday.ac.uk) on next generation sodium-ion batteries. The positions are available immediately and run until March 2021 in the first instance (with a possible extension to 4 years). The four posts are as follows:

Two positions working on new layered positive electrode materials for sodium-ion batteries. The successful candidate will join the research group of Dr. Rob Armstrong and should have a PhD in chemistry or related subject, ideally with experience of lithium-ion or sodium-ion batteries. Further information can be obtained informally by contacting Dr Rob Armstrong ara@st-andrews.ac.uk

A position working on the scale up of sodium-ion batteries and working closely with industrial partners. The successful candidate will join the group of Professor John Irvine and should have a PhD in chemistry or related subject, ideally with experience of lithium-ion or sodium-ion batteries. Further information can be obtained informally by contacting Professor John Irvine jtsi@st-andrews.ac.uk

A position working on organic negative electrode materials for sodium-ion batteries. The successful candidate will be an inorganic or physical chemist, preferably with experience in the synthesis and characterisation of metal-organic frameworks or related materials. They will join the research groups of Dr Rob Armstrong and Professor Russell Morris. The successful candidate should have a PhD in chemistry or related subject, ideally with experience of MOF chemistry. Further information can be obtained informally by contacting Dr Rob Armstrong ara@st-andrews.ac.uk or Professor Russell Morris rem1@st-andrews.ac.uk.

The positions are funded through Wave 2 of the Faraday Institution and hence the applicants will be working on the NEXGENNA project.  There will be excellent opportunities to engage with the wider Faraday programs for the appointed researchers.

The University of St Andrews is committed to promoting equality of opportunity for all, which is further demonstrated through its working on the Gender and Race Equality Charters and being awarded the Athena SWAN award for women in science, HR Excellence in Research Award and the LGBT Charter;  http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/hr/edi/diversityawards/
