Early career researchers
Early career researchers

At the heart of the Faraday Institution is our pioneering, collaborative research community, of which our Research Fellows make up the core.

Belonging to that community enables frequent opportunities for networking and collaboration, including attending some of our scientific review meetings of over 100 researchers.

Faraday Institution Research Fellows have access to a wide range of battery-related training courses such as these. We are planning to develop a more comprehensive catalogue of courses. Additionally, a mentoring programme is being launched to further support career progression and achievement.

Our projects are fast paced and tackle real-world challenges. That’s why we need to harness the skills of a dynamic and ambitious group of early career researchers.
