Postdoctoral Fellow: Carbon Black at UBC, Canada 1543 views

The University of British Columbia (UBC) is looking for a motivated and solution-oriented Postdoctoral Research Fellow (PDF) to lead the carbon black production and characterization project at Mérida Labs. Mérida Labs developed a patent-pending technology based on methane thermal cracking to produce zero-emission hydrogen and carbon black at a low cost. The technology uses liquid metals at high temperatures for methane thermal cracking.

Tasks and responsibilities:
  • Develop a test setup for carbon black production in the lab
  • Characterize the carbon black and determine its purity
  • Support the team to certify the carbon black produced according to standards and market requirements
  • Investigate the carbon black utilization pathways and market opportunities
  • Support the team in developing technology and processes to purify carbon black at a large scale

Duration: Appointment will be for one year, renewable, subject to a performance assessment.

Start date: March 1st, 2021 or soon after


  • Applicant must hold PhD degree in Chemistry, Material Science or related fields.
  • Priority will be given to candidates with strong knowledge of analytical chemistry and material science, good writing and communication skills as well as design and construction of experimental testbeds, and working with sensors, data acquisition systems (DAQ), and LabVIEW software.


  • The applications should be submitted to Dr. Omar Herrera at and applications must include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and names and contact information of three references.
