Dyson’s interest in researching and developing energy storage technologies started more than a decade ago, when it became apparent that the full potential of our DDM motors were starting to be held back by commercially available batteries. Fast-forward to 2023, and we now have over 100 scientists and engineers working on battery R&D across our labs in the UK, US and Singapore.

With multiple generations of Dyson battery technologies ranging from early research through the industrialisation phase, Dyson are recruiting a wide range of roles across their UK and Singapore labs to accelerate progress. These roles include materials scientists, electrochemists, cell design engineers, cell test technicians, cell assembly technicians, mechanical design engineers, manufacturing process development engineers and manufacturing technologists. We are recruiting at all levels of seniority up to senior technical roles.

About the role

Dyson requires a skilled and highly motivated experienced Engineer to help it achieve its current and long term battery ambitions and support its RDD lab activities. In this role you would be providing support for a growing team of researchers looking at new materials which underpin the functioning of the Li ion battery.

Key Responsibilities of the role

You will join a growing team of chemists, physicists and engineers in Dyson’s Strategy & Research Group. Your focus will be to perform chemical processes under guidance from senior scientists. You will be:

  • Involved in a program of research developing new cathode materials

  • Be heavily focused on hands on laboratory work, particularly around electrodes fabrication and electrochemical testing

  • You will be involved in testing the electrochemical property of the materials produced with high degree of reproducibility.

  • Involved into the characterisation of the atomic composition of our materials employing a suite of advanced techniques such as XRF and ICP.

  • Work within an energetic research environment focused on innovation

  • Be trained and developed to fully understand the R and D process for Li ion batteries

  • Carry out regular maintenance and H&S tasks to keep the labs in good working order.

About you

  • Experience of a Laboratory environment and familiarity with good H&S practices

  • Experience with electrochemical testing, battery assembly and performance assessment

  • Good track record for attention to detail

  • Methodical approach to work

  • Good organisational and planning skills

  • Strong problem solving skills exemplified by the ability to diagnose and rectify problems

  • Good written and verbal communication

  • MSc/PhD Degree in a Science discipline (Physics; Electrical Engineering; Chemistry, Biology etc.)

  • Familiar with standard chemical processes such as weighing, dissolving and filtering.

  • Familiar with compositional characterisation techniques and sample digestion practices.
