Two postdoctoral positions are immediately available in the Power Generation and Utility Fuels group at the Center for Applied Energy Research (CAER). One position will be in the fabrication and evaluation of membrane support materials. There is a particular interest in porous ceramic supports with high mechanical stability and porous organic/inorganic hollow fibers or spiral-wound membranes. The second position will focus on the synthesis and testing of selective membranes for CO2 capture with interest in both inorganic and organic membrane separation technology.
Qualified candidates should have a Ph.D. degree in materials science, membrane separation science, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, or a similar quantitative discipline. Strong experimentation skills, good communication skills, and a proven publication record are essential. Prior experience in any field of inorganic membranes including porous ceramic micro-/ultra-filters, or organic membrane (e.g., TFC NF/RO membranes, gas separation) is highly desirable. Prior experience in the fabrication of porous ceramics or material spinning is also valued.
Successful candidates will be offered competitive salary and benefits based on their experience and accomplishments. The University of Kentucky, Center for Applied Energy is located in Lexington, KY.
The University of Kentucky is an Equal Opportunity University.
