The group of Prof. Eleni Kyriakidou at the Department of Chemical
and Biological Engineering at the University at Buffalo is looking
for a post-doctoral scholar to develop novel catalytic materials
with enhanced low-temperature activity and durability at high
temperatures related to catalytic transformations for the control
of methane emissions in the atmosphere.
The research will focus on applying fundamental principles to
industrially-relevant systems, and will require the development of
Responsibilities will include:
- The post-doctoral scholar will synthesize zeolite-based
catalysts, characterize them, and elucidate their
structure-property relationships under industrially relevant
- Mentor and collaborate with undergraduate/MS students and PhD
candidates on research.
- Write quarterly scientific reports and manuscripts to be
published in peer reviewed scientific journals
- Give annual scientific presentations to nationwide catalysis
and emission control conferences
The research involves collaboration with MAHLE Powertrain and Oak
Ridge National Laboratory through a ARPA -E REMEDY project.
