Research Associate - Fixed Term Contract

University of Bath - Chemical Engineering

A Research Associate post is available in Prof Tim Mays' research group in the Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Bath, UK, for a full-time project funded by the EPSRC to develop computer simulations of hydrogen storage in porous media and to correlate outputs of these with experimental data and theoretical models. The application of interest is gas storage for sustainable energy systems such as fuel-cell vehicles. The successful applicant will have a PhD in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Materials Science or a closely related discipline and recent research experience of hydrogen storage in porous media. This should include relevant and up-to-date knowledge and understanding of computer simulation methods of adsorption plus practical experience of hydrogen adsorption measurements and theory including non-linear data analysis and fitting. Online applications should include a full and current CV including a list of publications and any funding awarded (for research, travel grants, etc.).
