Postdoc Positions

Research Scientist for Molecular Catalysis Group at Pacific Northwest National Lab

We are looking for a research scientist to join our molecular catalysis group at Pacific Northwest National Lab. This is a full time staff position with funding coming from DOE Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy through H2@scale concept  https://www.energy.gov/eere/fuelcells/h2-scale.

The research position will focus on hydrogen carriers, i.e., (i) new materials and approaches to transport hydrogen from production facilities to a hydrogen refueling station and (ii) novel approaches and materials for geographically agnostic storage (what is  the best way to store energy generated from renewable sources daily, monthly, seasonally?)  How can we use our background in chemical sciences, and energy storage in chemical bonds, to develop a better solution to hydrogen carriers than compressed hydrogen gas?

The staff position will require an appreciation of kinetics and thermodynamics in condensed phase materials. Creative problem solving and the ability to work productively in an interdisciplinary team of chemists, chemical engineers, experimentalists and computational scientists are skills we are looking for in a new staff member.

Attached are some of the overview slides from a recent webinar on Hydrogen Carriers that will be available to find on the DOE website in total sometime in the near future.

Study Abroad with the Energy Institute - Application Deadlines: Priority: December 1, Final: February 15 (pending spots available)

The 2015 Paris Climate Agreement resulted in a global mandate to decarbonize the world’s energy infrastructures, however the pathways forward for energy transitions are complex and uncertain.

An intentional and expedient transition of the energy infrastructure remains a complicated process, one that must be responsive to the specific geographies, histories, politics, and lifeways of individual cities and nations. While there are considerable challenges, many nations are beginning to make meaningful progress towards decarbonizing the energy sector.

CSU’s “Energy Transitions” education abroad program provides students with a multi-disciplinary and multi-national perspective on energy transitions that are unfolding in the present moment. Over the course of this program, students grapple with complex questions about the European Union’s energy transition, while visiting sites in Denmark, France, Belgium. Students will gain first-hand knowledge in workshops at high-level institutions such as the International Energy Agency and the Clean Energy Ministerial in Paris, while also touring important infrastructures such as off-shore wind farms in Denmark and the European grid headquarters in Belgium.

By investigating a variety of sites in Europe, students not only gain an international perspective on energy transitions, they also learn about site-specific conditions-the individual economies, technologies, and cultures-that present opportunities and challenges for clean energy deployment. The goal is to enable students to become exceptionally informed and resourceful thinkers and researchers who can more skillfully navigate complex and interdisciplinary questions about energy transitions in the U.S. and abroad.
