EnPower is looking for a cell engineer
W Pinnacle Peak Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85027, USA
EnPower, Inc. is an early-stage startup. They are developing next-generation Li-ion batteries that have fast-charging and long cycle-life capabilities—critical enablers to the mass electrification of vehicles. Their R&D, pilot-manufacturing, and sales operations are based out of our engineering facility & headquarters located in the north Phoenix – Deer Valley area. Which is where they are producing hundreds of >3.0Ah pouch cells per week.
The Cell Engineer at EnPower Inc is responsible for developing the next generation of lithium-ion batteries by carrying out projects from bench scale to pilot-manufacturing scale. The cell engineer will be expected to lead, design, and execute projects to advance the design of battery components (i.e. anode, cathode, electrolyte, separator, etc), and iteratively coordinate with the Cell Engineering Team to translate small-scale concepts to pilot-scale demonstrations of technologies critical to the growth of EnPower Inc. We are seeking candidates with a strong breadth of knowledge across lithium-ion technologies who have demonstrated records of executing projects to completion. Candidates with a strong experimental background in materials characterization, synthesis, and/or processing are welcome to apply.
- M.S. or PhD., Post Doc in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, or related with strong knowledge in electrochemistry
- 2+ years of postgraduate experience in energy storage technologies
- Familiarity with and/or the ability to learn electroanalytical techniques (i.e. EIS, LSV, CV, dV/dQ analysis, etc.) in various configurations (two-electrode cell, three-electrode cell, symmetric cells, half cells, full cells)
- Knowledge of materials characterization techniques including, but not limited to SEM, BET, rheometry, laser particle size analyzers, TGA, XPS, NMR, etc.
Closing Date: February 1, 2021
