In this position you will join our process development group team in our R&D Department. You will be in charge of production of materials and scaling up anodes and cathodes formulation for the production of our novel batteries.
Essential Duties and Responsibilities:
You will be in charge of the system that is used to develop processes related to the reduction of particle size, suspension stability and reactions that may occur.
You will be part of the process development group and you will help develop processes for the scaling up of anode/cathode formulations.
Conduct process development experiment from the active material phase to the coating phase while operating the necessary equipment needed for that.
The role requires a multidisciplinary approach and a problem solver attitude. You will work with many interfaces inside the company from R&D chemistry to engineering production.
Key research activities:
1. Research and development fields:
i. Size reduction – powder milling (wet/dry ball milling technology)
ii. Slurry development (dispersions, stability, rheology)
iii. Physical analysis tools
2. Coating and drying including volatility, coating defects, surface energy effects.
To perform the job successfully, an individual should demonstrate the following competencies:
B.Sc. in Chemical/Materials engineering or related fields or M.Sc in chemistry with 2 years of experience.
Research/development experience in the following fields: dispersions, milling, surfactants, rheology, surface tension, substrate adhesion, surface treatment, an advantage.
Experience in performing tests, analyzing results of the following measurements methods (an advantage): rheology, peeling tests, SEM/TEM, particle size & writing reports.
Ability to work collaboratively with group members and internal/external colleagues.
Ability to work in a team and collaborate in a multidisciplinary environment.
