Applications for postdoctoral scientists and research associates will be reviewed by individual CEBC faculty mentors and placed in a pool for consideration for a one to two year research position. The research projects may involve one or more of the following topical areas:
* Reaction engineering, including detailed modeling and experimental characterization of novel reactor designs, multi-phase catalytic systems, and complex reaction kinetics;
* Design, synthesis, and characterization of homogeneous and/or heterogeneous catalysts for a wide variety of chemistries;
* Engineering tunable solvents (e.g., supercritical fluids, gas-expanded liquids, and ionic liquids) as reaction media or for energy-efficient separations;
* Molecular modeling of reaction mechanisms, condensed phases, or novel porous materials;
* Design and evaluation of chemical processes, including plant-scale simulations (Aspen/HYSYS), and environmental sustainability assessments (LCA);
* Advanced spectroscopic measurements and surface science;
* Analytical chemistry, especially as it relates to biomass-derived feedstocks and reaction mixtures.
