We are seeking to recruit a highly motivated and enthusiastic postdoctoral research fellow within the research group of Dr. Darren Walsh in the School of Chemistry at the University of Nottingham. The successful candidate will work as part of an EPSRC-funded research programme entitled “Ionic Liquid Electrolytes for Intermediate-Temperature Electrolysers”, in collaboration with Prof. Keith Scott (Chemical Engineering and Advanced Materials, Newcastle University) and Dr. Mohamoud Mamlouk (Chemical Engineering and Advanced Materials, Newcastle University). 

The successful candidate will investigate the development of novel ionic liquid-based proton-exchange membranes for water electrolysers. The fellowship will be based in the newly-opened Carbon Neutral Laboratory for Sustainable Chemistry on the University’s Jubilee Campus (https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/estates/development/csc.aspx).

Candidates must have a PhD, or almost completed, in Physical Chemistry, Materials Chemistry, or a related discipline, with particular experience in the development of materials for electrochemical energy conversion and storage.A track record in the development of electrolytes for electrochemical energy conversion, and particularly for proton-exchange membrane electrolysers, is preferred.Experience carrying out electrochemical analysis of ionic liquid-based systems is also preferred.
