Research Associate to 3D printing of energy storage devices mperial College London Department of Materials and Faculty of Engineering United Kingdom

Contract: Full-Time, Fixed Term appointment for 12 months with possible extension

Campus: South Kensington


Imperial College London is a science-based institution with the greatest concentration of high-impact research of any UK university. The Faculty of Engineering, consistently rated among the best in the world, is made up of ten academic departments and is committed to increasing its research activity by focusing on engineering-led multidisciplinary growth areas that target a number of global challenges. All of our academic departments are located on a single campus in South Kensington, giving a concentration of talent that creates a stimulating and vibrant research community.


Applications are invited for a Research Associate position funded by the ERC-Consolidator grant "3DAddChip" that will design miniaturized devices using a three-dimensional printing technique. Deterministic assembly of 2D materials in three-dimensional miniaturized structures is paramount for the fabrication of new small-scale devices to serve in on-chip technologies. This is a new manufacturing challenge, as miniaturization is currently developed to achieve planar-geometries. Three-dimensional printing allows templating materials with arbitrary complexity at different scales. The Mattevi group has developed a general strategy to formulate highly concentrated, water-based 2D material inks suitable for printing functional 3D architectures in miniaturized scales. This Research Associate position will fabricate devices at small scales for energy storage, using advanced three-dimensional printing techniques. S/he will test the devices and will work on materials-devices design.


You will be a conscientious, innovative and experimental scientist who has successfully completed a PhD (or equivalent) in Materials/Chemistry or other science/engineering subjects.


You will work within a team of research associates in extensively newly-refurbished laboratories on the South Kensington Campus and interact with several academic collaborators. In addition to the state-of-the-art facilities within the department, you will also have access to the facilities at the London Centre for Nanotechnology.


Excellent communication and organisational skills are essential.


Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range £34,397- £37,486 per annum.
