Apply for this job
  • What you bring

  • PhD degree in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Material Science, or related technical field, or five+ years of practical experience with an MS/BS degree;
  • Direct experience performing materials surface characterization (ex. spectroscopy, chemisorption, physisorption) and evaluation of heterogeneous catalysts;
  • Broad knowledge of fields related to artificial and natural CCUS, including, but not limited to, CO2 sorption, environmental catalysis, electrochemistry/catalysis (ex. electrochemical CO2 capture and conversion), bio-engineering, biochemistry, water chemistry, soil chemistry, etc.
  • Hands-on laboratory experience with clear and documented evidence of safe laboratory practices.
  • First or corresponding author publication in scientific journals.
  • What you may bring

  • Knowledge and experience in methods specific automotive catalyst research, ex. wet impregnation synthesis, packed-bed reactor evaluation (T50, lambda sweep, steady-state), and in situ characterization;
