Postdoc Positions in Heterogeneous Catalysis at the University of California, Riverside (1-2 Openings)

Thermal/New Concept Catalysis for Environmental Applications and Sustainable Chemical Transformations

Job description

Postdoctoral Scholar in Heterogeneous Catalysis, including Thermal Catalysis, Environmental Applications, Chemical Transformations, Single Atom Catalysis, Emission Control, Greenhouse Gas Reduction/Utilization, Clean Energy Source Conversion, X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy etc.We have 1-2 postdoc positions open now at the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering (CEE), University of California, Riverside. 

The postdoc researchers will be supervised by Dr. Fudong Liu

 (https://profiles.ucr.edu/fudong.liu;https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=5gRxLTwAAAAJ&hl=en). 

The duration period for the positions is Apr-Oct 2024 to Apr-Oct 2026 (early starting date is highly preferred).

The research directions include but not limit to heterogeneous catalysis, thermal catalysis, nanomaterial synthesis, single atom catalysis, cluster catalysis, environmental pollution control including HC/CO oxidation, NO/NH3 oxidation, NOxreduction and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) removal, greenhouse gas (CO2, CH4, N2O etc.) reduction/utilization, clean energy source conversion etc. Duties include heterogeneous catalyst synthesis, experimental design, catalyst aging, reactor testing, catalyst characterization (preferentially with skills on synchrotron based X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) technique), and reaction mechanism study etc.The research team has strong catalysis research and application background, with advanced instrumentation for catalyst synthesis, aging, testing, characterization, and reaction mechanism study, as well as rich collaborative resources including synchrotron-based XAS, HAADF-STEM and DFT calculation + KMC simulation etc.Candidates with PhD degree in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Materials Science and Engineering or a closely related field, as well as strong motivation in both fundamental and applied heterogeneous catalysis research are encouraged to apply.

Candidates with strong interest can contact Dr. Fudong Liu (fudong.liu@ucr.edu) by sending (1) A cover letter detailing specific experience; (2) A copy of CV/Resume; and (3) A list of at least three references (only names, emails and institutions).Only complete application materials will be considered. The search will continue until the position is filled.

For questions regarding the position, please contact Dr. Fudong Liu at fudong.liu@ucr.edu.
