Position Summary

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 zeolite-based catalysts.

Responsibilities will include:
  • The post-doctoral scholar will synthesize zeolite-based catalysts, characterize them, and elucidate their structure-property relationships under industrially relevant conditions.
  • 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.
