A motivated postdoctoral fellow is being sought to work on a new method of producing CO2-free hydrogen from methane. As the lead researcher on this project, your primary tasks will be related to catalyst development, reactor design, synthesis, and characterization to understand and control the interaction between reactivity, catalyst surfaces, carbon and reactants. The majority of the work will be experimental and involve novel high temperature reactors. Work will be performed at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering's 3 Heterogeneous Catalysis Labs and the Clean Energy Research Center under Dr. Upham’s supervision.
The candidate should have a PhD in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Mechanical Engineering, Materials Engineering or a related field. Priority will be given to candidates with experimental experience in heterogeneous catalysis and construction and operation of lab-scale reactors. The fellowship will be for a one-year appointment, with the possibility of renewal subject to progress and performance. The ideal candidate will work well with the other group members and collaborate on other projects.
Please email your CV with the names and contact information of three references along with your cover letter to email@example.com. Review of applications will begin immediately and proceed until the position is filled. Please include this job title in the title of your email.
