Postdoctoral Fellow. Hydrogen Policy and Supply-Chain

Mérida Labs is a multidisciplinary group designing energy systems that simultaneously minimize environmental damage, promote geopolitical stability, and enable economic diversification. Our integrated approach focuses on policies, technologies and partnerships that enable an equitable society and a low-carbon economy. We are well funded with collaborations with industry, government and academia.

New technology adoption into the transportation system requires a balance between the vehicle market growth and the fuel supply chain. Designing a sustainable hydrogen fuel supply chain (HFSC) for sufficient geographic coverage and minimum investment, which achieves GHG emissions reduction targets is necessary for a successful transition to hydrogen mobility.

As the team leader for policy, you will have the opportunity to work with industry, government and academia to develop hydrogen specific policies. Some of the tools at your disposal are a multifunction and multivariable hydrogen supply chain model. The model was developed for BC, but can be used for other regions and countries.

The fellowship will be for a one-year appointment, renewable for one additional year, subject to a performance assessment. There is the potential for the position to be extended beyond two years as a Research Associate. The position is available from now until it is filled. Review of applications will begin on July 30th, 2020. Interested candidates with a Ph.D. in computer science, electrical and computer engineering, or any closely related discipline, completed within the last 3 years are encouraged to apply. Applications must include a cover letter, curriculum vitae and names and contact information of three references and can be submitted to Dr. Omar Herrera at

Applicants are asked to complete the following equity survey: The survey information will not be used to determine eligibility for employment but will be collated to provide data that can assist us in understanding the diversity of our applicant pool and identifying potential barriers to the employment of designated equity group members. Your participation in the survey is voluntary and anonymous. This survey takes only a minute to complete. You may self-identify in one or more of the designated equity groups. You may also decline to identify in any or all of the questions by choosing "not disclosed".
