A123 R&D is seeking a motivated Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) scientist to join the R&D team in Romulus, Michigan to support development of the next generation cathode materials. The desired candidate will be a Ph.D. graduate with post-doctoral appointment or industrial experience in the field of phosphate material synthesis and its application in LIB technology. This will require experience in different synthesis methods and equipment, deep knowledge in electrochemistry fundamentals, and hands on analytical techniques with technical understanding of the analysis and the results discussion. These analytical resources may include but not limited to several chemical techniques: gas chromatography with mass spectral detection (GC-MS), infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), and elemental analyses (ICP-AES, C-analyzer) as well as several material characterization techniques: thermogravimetric analysis / differential scanning calorimetry (TGA/DSC), surface area (BET), particle size (PSA), morphology, elemental mapping, and structural analysis techniques (SEM/EDS, XRD).
Initiation and responsibility is a must. Attention to details and comprehensive analysis is essential; team-player with a positive attitude and the ability to operate with minimal direct supervision is a major plus.
A123 is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer
