Postdoc position at University of Alabama Department of Chemical Engineering
Dr. James Harris group is in search of a postdoctoral researcher to conduct experimental research in the area of catalysis and in situ spectroscopy, in collaboration with Profs. David Dixon and Tonya Klein in the U. Alabama Departments of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, respectively. Due to restrictions from the funding source, applicants MUST BE U.S. CITIZENS.
Competitive applicants will have research experience working with catalysts, including zeolites and supported NPs, as well as in use of gas-phase reactors. Applicants should have expertise in GC, IR, and materials synthesis and characterization (e.g., XRD, N2 adsorption, TGA/DSC, ICP-OES). The research would involve (de)hydrogenation reactions over metal-containing zeolite catalysts.
The start date is flexible (ideally Jan-May 2023) and the position is for 2-3 years depending on performance and availability of funds. Interested applicants are welcome to e-mail me, please include a .pdf version of your CV demonstrating a record of achievement in research.
