Postdoctoral Fellowship in Next generation materials for hydrogen permeation


Postdoctoral Fellowship in Subsequent technology supplies for hydrogen permeation

CSIRO Early Analysis Profession (CERC) Postdoctoral Fellowships present alternatives to scientists and engineers who’ve accomplished their doctorate and have lower than three years of related postdoctoral work expertise. These fellowships intention to develop the following technology of future leaders of the innovation system.

The Postdoctoral Fellow will work with a devoted and skilled Steel Membrane Applied sciences Staff, to analysis and develop subsequent technology supplies for optimised hydrogen permeation and separation efficiencies with a concentrate on understanding hydrogen permeation and diffusion phenomena and mechanisms by way of metallic crystal lattices.  The Postdoctoral Fellow will take a number one function to analysis, consider and develop supplies for hydrogen gasoline separation and permeation.

Your duties will embrace:

  • Choice of appropriate supplies and metallic coatings for hydrogen permeation, understanding relationship between intermetallic lattice construction / microstructure, floor space and permeation/flux/separation effectivity/hydrogen purity from hydrogen gasoline mixtures produced from ammonia/steam methane reforming/LOHC or different sources.
  • Investigations on the impact of several types of carbon and gaseous impurities on the permeation response to determine relationships with floor parameters and efficiency.
  • Design, growth, analysis and building of check fixtures / rigs to guage hydrogen gasoline permeation and optimise working regime.
  • Supplies characterisation (XRD, SEM, TEM, DTA/TGA, floor space, and so forth.) to characterise and relate floor defects, coating thickness, crystal construction, microstructure to hydrogen gasoline permeation efficiency.

Location:  Brisbane, QLD

Wage:  AU$88k – AU$96k plus as much as 15.4% superannuation

Tenure:  Specified time period of three years

Reference:   76684

To be thought of you will have:

  • A doctorate (or will shortly fulfill the necessities of a PhD) in a related self-discipline space, akin to Metallurgy, Electrochemistry, Supplies Science, Physics or Supplies/Chemical Engineering. Please observe: To be eligible for this function you will need to have not more than 3 years (full-time equal) of postdoctoral analysis expertise.
  • Excessive scientific creativity demonstrated by a monitor report and capability to hold out unique, unbiased and revolutionary analysis in fixing advanced issues and introducing new instructions and approaches.
  • Sound information and expertise working with hydrogen inside hydrogen vitality functions.
  • Confirmed understanding of chemical and laboratory tools dealing with necessities notably with respect to Well being, Security and Surroundings compliance – particularly throughout the hydrogen area.
  • Excessive degree written and oral communication expertise with the power to characterize the analysis crew successfully internally and externally, together with the presentation of analysis outcomes at nationwide and worldwide conferences.
