Job Role Summary

Work as part of multi-discipline teams investigating electrochemical behavior and performance of a range of energy and process systems.  Participate in the investigation, application and development of electrochemical fundamentals and models, both thermodynamic and kinetic.  This position requires flexibility and a willingness to work both within core competencies and adjacent areas.  A variety of backgrounds could fit in this positions, examples of particular interest include:

  • Fuel cell (PEM, SOFC, MCFC, etc) operations and performance (button cells, single cells and/or small stacks); characterization of catalyst, electrode and electrolyte materials of fuel cells and electrolytic cells; electrochemical reaction mechanism determination as a function of feeds, concentrations, gas treat rate and catalyst/electrode materials

  • Collection, evaluation and equivalent circuit modeling of electrochemical impedance spectroscopy in a variety of systems.  Exploration of mass transport vs kinetic control and electron transfer resistances of electrochemical systems under a variety of process/environmental conditions

  • Conduct classic electrochemical measurements on a range of aqueous, non-aqueous and solid systems, including various voltammetry and polarography techniques (linear sweep, cyclic, normal pulse, differential pulse, etc.).

  • Battery construction (button cells, packs, flow systems, etc) and performance of commercialized and developing systems (Li ion, LiS, NaS, etc).  Characterization of charge/recharge cycles, cell lifetime and failure mechanisms.

Primary Job Functions

The researcher will study electrochemical performance and behavior of both traditional and non-traditional electrochemical systems.  This may include fuel cells/electrolyzers for novel applications and chemical processing, electrocatalysis and non-faradaic processes.

Job Requirements

  • A Ph.D. in electrochemistry, chemistry, chemical engineering, or similar fields

  • Demonstrated ability to design and perform experimental work to elucidate electrochemical behavior of systems of interest (fuel cells, chemical processing, electrocatalytic systems, energy systems, etc). 

  • Prior experience collaborating / contributing to fundamental and process model development. 

  • Experience as part of a multi-discipline team investigating electrochemical aspects of chemical processes and/or energy systems.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
