Postdoctoral Chemical Engineering: UBC
Postdoctoral fellow in the field of chemical engineering (heterogeneous catalysts for co2-free hydrogen production) at the University of British Columbia (UBC)
Reference Number: Please refer to reference number PDFO-54468 when applying for this position.
A postdoctoral fellowship is available to work on a new method of producing CO2-free hydrogen from methane under the supervision of Professor Chester Upham.
Project: The primary tasks will then be related to catalyst development, synthesis, and characterization to understand and control the interaction between carbon, catalyst surfaces, and reactants. The majority of the work will be experimental and involve novel high temperature reactors. Work will be performed at UBC in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering’s 3 Heterogeneous Catalysis Labs and the Clean Energy Research Center.
Requirements / Qualifications
- Have a PhD in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Mechanical Engineering, Materials Engineering or any related field.
- Priority will be given to candidates with experimental experience in heterogeneous catalysis and construction and operation of lab-scale reactors.
Duration: This fellowship will be for a one-year appointment, with the possibility of renewal subject to progress and performance. The candidate must be able to start in-person at UBC in January 2021 (or earlier).
Applicants should send enquiries by email and refer to reference number PDFO-54468.
