The Glusac group at the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC) is looking for a postdoctoral research associate with expertise in electrocatalysis, more specifically towards carbon dioxide reduction to useful fuels, such as methanol. The postdoc will be involved in performing electrochemical experiments to evaluate the electrocatalysts' catalytic activity, efficiency and product selectivity using electrochemical and other characterization techniques. This project will be performed in collaboration with the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Materials group at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL), led by Dr. Deborah Myers. The postdoctoral fellow will be performing experiments at both UIC and ANL. The project is part of the larger research center called CO2 Reduction and Upgrading for e-Fuels Consortium (CO2RUe), which is funded by the Department of Energy to develop advanced technologies that convert carbon dioxide (CO2) into e-fuels and commodity chemicals using renewable electricity.

Duties & Responsibilities

  • The postdoc will be expected to characterize the electrochemical performance of electrocatalysts developed within the project team, and analyze, interpret, present, and publish the research results. The postdoc will also be expected to provide recommendations for further materials development based on their own experimental results and literature results.
