Research Fellow (Bioelectrochemistry)

Updated: 2 months ago
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 26 Oct 2023

Job Description

This position is for postdoctoral research in bioelectrochemical CO2 conversion in the Andrew B Wong group, which is affiliated with the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the National University of Singapore (NUS) as well as with the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the National University of Singapore (NUS).

The ideal candidate would possess expert-level knowledge of electrocatalysis, bioelectrochemistry, or similar chemistries with a publication track record as a first author in leading journals (Impact factor >10 or more). Experience with materials characterization techniques such as SEM, EDS, EELS TEM, STEM, XRD, XAS, XPS, FTIR, AFM, STM, and/or Raman would be desirable. Experience with additive manufacturing would be desirable Comfort discussing research fluently in English is also highly desirable.

Those applicants who meet the requirements and pass the preliminary review will be notified via email to arrange an interview. Recruitment advertisement is in effect until the position is filled.

Job Requirements
