We invite you to apply for a Postdoctoral Appointee position within Argonne’s Chemical Sciences and Engineering (CSE) Division.
In this role you will:
Design, synthesize, and evaluate next-generation electro-catalysts for CO2 conversion to value-added chemicals and for water splitting using chemical and physical synthesis techniques combined with half-cell electrochemical methods, such as rotating disk electrode and H-cell, as well as full-cell electrolyzers
Perform catalyst structural characterization using conventional analyses such as XRD, BET, XFS, SEM, TEM, as well as the advanced characterization tools such as X-ray absorption and scattering methods
Work closely with modeling and simulation team in catalyst/electrolyzer system engineering and optimization
Design, synthesize and test new materials to improve fundamental understanding of the discharge-charge processes for the next-generation batteries
Prepare reports and oral presentations on project progress
Knowledge of and experimental expertise in synthesis and characterization of electrocatalysts for the CO2 reduction reaction and oxygen evolution and reduction reactions
Knowledge of and experimental expertise in evaluating electrocatalysts using RDE, RRDE, H-cell methods, as well as testing in a full electrolyzer
Knowledge of and experimental expertise in TEM and synchrotron X-ray based catalyst structure characterization techniques
Excellent written and oral communication skills with internal team and external sponsors
Knowledge of synthesis and preparation of structured porous materials such as metal-organic framework and/or porous organic polymers is a plus
This level of knowledge is typically achieved through a formal education in chemistry, material science, or chemical engineering at the Ph.D. degree level with 0 to 3 years of experience or equivalent in the scientific application and practical laboratory experience
