Electrode Coatings Experimental Technician

INEOS Electrochemical Solutions is a world leading manufacturer of industrial scale electrolysis technologies, principally used in the Chlor-Alkali industry to produce chlorine, a key component of life.  With comprehensive research and manufacturing facilities in the UK, we operate globally, and have been continually developing our state-of-the-art BICHLOR electrolysers and CHLORCOAT electrode coatings for over 35 years.

Main role purpose:

The post holder is responsible for the entire process of cell build, operation and execution of experimental plans for a range of industrial electrolysis applications.

Key responsibilities & accountabilities:

•    Operate and build small-scale micro-pilot test cells to measure the performance characteristics of new electrode coatings and execute experimental plans.
•    Compile test data and collate results from the experiments into clear formats for communication and presentation as required. 
•    Work autonomously in a chemical laboratory to prepare standard electrolyte solutions and carry out the physical characterisation of products.  
•    Ensure effective use of equipment and run-time, to maintain and improve equipment and to further develop electrochemical test techniques to enhance capability.
•    Carry out basic maintenance of equipment, working with suppliers and Company engineers to source and repair components.

Key skills & experience required

•    A degree in a scientific field, preferably chemistry. 
•    High concern for standards, especially in relation to SHE, including appreciation of COSHH and safe experiment design.
•    Experience of working in a safety-focused laboratory, working with hazardous substances such as chlorine and caustic soda.  
•    Demonstrable experience in laboratory-scale electrochemical testing. 
•    Competent and confident user of Microsoft Excel to collate and process large quantities of data. 
•    Able to develop efficient workflows to refine results and present these effectively to the wider team.
•    Hands-on approach. 
•    Familiar with the basic principles of electrochemistry, relevant to testing of electrocatalysts for use in fuel cells, electrolysers or flow-batteries is preferable.
