Applications are currently open for two Mitacs Accelerate postdoctoral fellowships with the SFU Fuel Cell Research Laboratory and Hydrogen in Motion (H2M):

Nanomaterial-Based Hydrogen Storage System Development and Evaluation

There is an immediate opportunity for a 2-year Mitacs Accelerate Industrial Post-Doctoral Fellowship (PDF) to work with the research team in Hydrogen In Motion Inc. (H2M) and Simon Fraser University to conduct research in development of hydrogen storage system using nanomaterials. The term position will begin on or around June 1, 2018 or as soon as possible.

Responsibilities:

  • Conduct a research project focused on hydrogen storage property evaluation and measurements.
  • Develop unique expertise in the area of gas sorption and desorption in nanomaterials and associated energy storage systems to interpret the hydrogen storage properties in terms of the structure and composition of the material.
  • Maintain up-to-date knowledge of, critically analyze, and summarize related hydrogen storage material and property literature.
  • Correlate experimental observations to modeling predictions, and develop strategies to adjust the process to better match theoretical expectations.
  • Analyze, interpret and summarize test data.
  • Work effectively within a research team of scientists and research engineers to accomplish technical objectives.
  • Troubleshoot instrument and equipment problems.

Requirements:

  • Recent PhD degree in Physics, Materials Science/Engineering or a related discipline.
  • Strong background in physical chemistry (thermodynamics and kinetics).
  • Proficiency in nanomaterials characterization using spectroscopic, microscopic and physical methods.
  • Strong analytical skills.
  • Strong hands-on capabilities and aptitude.
  • Ability to work as part of a small team and supervise students and technicians.
  • Experience in new nano-material design and development and energy storage system applications will be a strong asset.

To apply for this position, please contact Dr. Natalia Kremliakova via apcfc@sfu.ca, by April 30, 2018, including a cover letter and resume addressing how you meet and exceed the requirements.

Hydrogen Storage Material Research

There is an immediate opportunity for a 2-year Mitacs Accelerate Industrial Post-Doctoral Fellowship (PDF) to work with the research team in Hydrogen In Motion Inc. (H2M) and Simon Fraser University to conduct research in new generation materials for hydrogen storage. The term position will begin on or around June 1, 2018 or as soon as possible.

Responsibilities:

  • Conduct a research project focused on design, development, synthesis and scaling up new materials for hydrogen storage.
  • Carry out experiments on characterization of new materials using advanced spectroscopic and microscopic techniques e.g., SEM (EDX), HRTEM, EELS, XPS, Raman, XRD etc., coupled with physico-chemical methods, e.g., BET, MSP etc., to understand the structure, composition, and properties of the materials.
  • Maintain up-to-date knowledge of, critically analyze, and summarize related hydrogen storage materials literature.
  • Analyze, interpret and summarize test data.
  • Work effectively within a research team of scientists and research engineers to accomplish technical objectives.
  • Troubleshoot instrument and equipment problems.

Requirements:

  • Recent PhD degree in Chemistry, Materials Science/Engineering or a related discipline.
  • Strong background and experience in inorganic and organic syntheses (optional).
  • Proficiency in nanomaterials characterization using spectroscopic, microscopic and physical methods.
  • Strong analytical skills
  • Strong hands-on capabilities and aptitude
  • Ability to work as part of a small team and supervise students and technicians
  • Experience in new nano-material design and development energy storage system applications will be a strong asset.
