Research Fellow (Electrochemical CO2 conversion)

Date: 21-Jun-2022

Location: Kent Ridge Campus, SG

Company: National University of Singapore

Job Description

PostDoctoral positions (research fellow) are available in the group of Assistant Professor Yanwei LUM at the Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at the National University of Singapore (NUS). The goal of the project is to develop highly efficient and selective electrocatalysts for recycling of waste CO¬2 into chemicals and fuels. Such catalysts will be integrated into lab scale CO2 electrochemical reactors where conversion will take place. The research fellows are also expected to play an active role in guiding and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students in the group. 

 

Some examples of activities to be carried out in the project are:

  1. Regularly perform materials synthesis and characterization for the development of novel electrocatalysts.
  2. Sample preparation for electrocatalytic studies.
  3. Carry out electrochemical techniques to determine electrocatalyst performance.
  4. Perform product analysis and quantification using methods such as GC, HPLC and NMR.

Qualifications

Candidates must have obtained a PhD in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Materials Science and Engineering or related fields. 

Candidates are required to have the following skillsets:

  1. Materials synthesis for a variety of solid inorganic materials as electrocatalysts through various synthesis procedures.
  2. A strong understanding and extensive experience in electrochemistry and electrocatalysis is a must
  3. Working knowledge and experience in GC, NMR and HPLC.
  4. Experience in operando catalyst studies (e.g. in-situ Raman, FTIR and etc)
  5. At least 1-2 Publications in top tier journals (IF > 10)
