The Role

This is an exciting opportunity for a talented research engineer to work on a project delivering a new low-carbon hydrogen production system at small demonstration scale. The Materials, Concepts and Reaction Engineering (MatCoRE) Group are leaders in this area, with significant support from EPSRC, the Royal Academy of Engineering, the European Commission and the UK Catalysis Hub. We have developed a new chemical looping process that produces low-carbon hydrogen, as explained in this short video. The method has secured for Prof Metcalfe a prestigious RAEng Chair in Emerging Technology, with allocated funding for the equipment and personnel to develop the process.

Your role will focus on improving material performance in chemical looping systems by investigating novel materials and structures to be used as oxygen carriers and/or catalysts. Key tasks include: material formulation, synthesis and characterisation; thermodynamic and kinetic studies; writing peer reviewed publications and presenting finds at meetings; aiding PhD student supervision and day-to-day running of the lab.

We are looking for an individual who is committed, motivated and with decision making ability together with an aptitude for independent working as well as working as part of a diverse, interdisciplinary team. As a representative of the School, you will be an excellent communicator with demonstrable interpersonal skills and the ability to engage with non-academic stakeholders (e.g. industry, government and the general public).
