Through the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) this posting seeks a motivated post-doctoral or early career researcher with experience in microwave/RF (electromagnetic)-assisted chemical processing at the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL). Processes based on alternative-energy input such as MW and plasma are generating interest in many industrial applications. Recently, MW-assisted catalytic processes have demonstrated significant potential in several fossil energy-related applications. Therefore, in addition to traditional catalyst-based processes, the Reaction Engineering Team is responsible for evaluating innovative processes using microwaves, RF, and plasma for a wide range of fossil energy applications. The team currently possesses significant expertise in heterogeneous catalysis and fuel conversion processes, and looks to broaden their capabilities and explore novel technologies that utilize the various interactions between EM fields and different materials. The selected candidate will research closely with the team as well as other researchers at NETL to understand the underlying mechanism of microwave-assisted catalytic reactions.
The candidate must possess significant fundamental knowledge and practical experience with state-of-the-art microwave system design and characterization for microwave (MW) systems such as waveguides, antennas, etc. Hands on experience in electromagnetic field simulation such as interactions of electromagnetic waves with materials would be preferred. The candidate must be well-versed in using microwave diagnostics techniques such as network analyzers, spectrum analyzers, oscilloscopes, etc. Candidate is not required to have chemistry or catalyst background.
