  • Location: Stirling
  • Salary: Negotiable
  • Type: Permanent - Full Time
  • Added: Jun 27, 2019
  • Expires: Jul, 26 2019

We were founded in 2016 after winning the Scottish Higgs EDGE 2016 for its development of a Graphene layer manufacturing process. The transformational process (patent pending) is disruptive as it enables the use of Graphene in an unlimited number of applications. Industry standard cycle times to produce Graphene are in the region of 16 hours making it cost-prohibitive for applications. Graphene’s design for manufacture (DfM) process creates 3D graphene in seconds and therefore enables high volume manufacture.

To support the technical development team, we are looking for hands-on electrochemist or surface scientist to join our team of scientists and engineers dedicated to developing products in the energy fields.

The successful candidate will work in our graphene team on laboratory-based research and development of products and processes. He/she will work on new supercapacitor and /or battery materials and test these using a range of electrochemical testing techniques in order to increase cell energy density and other performance parameters.
The chosen candidate will have a high degree of freedom to operate and it is expected that he/she is a self-reliant achiever and thrives in small, innovative teams.

Key Responsibility:
Characterising materials (by Electrochemical testing).
Analysing the interaction between electrodes and electrolyte.
Benchmarking materials relative to alternatives.
Gather, select, analyse and interpret data.
Establishing criteria for Quality Assurance measurements.
Ensuring safe operation of all process associated equipment.
Acting as a technical liaison with colleagues, customers and manufacturers.


The candidate will be able to demonstrate:
Relevant PhD in either electrochemistry or surface science is required
Significant relevant experience in the field of fuel cell, supercapacitor and/or battery
3+ years of experience (theoretical and practical knowledge) in supercapacitor and /or battery
3+ years of hands-on experience with electrochemical devices development.
Hands-on experience in electrochemical testing and characterisation of supercapacitors and/or batteries including: Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy, Cyclic Voltammetry, and Cell Cycling

The candidate should:
Be organised, patient and learn-everyday attitude
Enjoys work and likes to get things done.
Start-up mentality and enjoying work in a small team.
