University of California, Davis
The Materials Chemistry Laboratory (MCL) at the University of California, Davis invites applications from highly motivated individuals for a Postdoctoral Researcher position to work on technologies that enable carbon dioxide-negative critical metal mining at a global scale. The successful candidate will work on electrochemical approaches for lithium and nickel extraction with concurrent carbon dioxide mineralization and the low-temperature synthesis of minerals. The successful candidate will work in a fast-paced environment with a team of chemical engineers, materials scientists and engineers, and process engineers to develop a commercially relevant-scale process for the continuous production of carbonates and critical metal-containing hydroxides. The project is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E).
Qualifications and Skills:
The successful candidate will be expected to take personal initiative to structure tasks to meet project functions and author novel publications. The candidate will also be expected to mentor students, fulfill project administration functions, and assist in proposal development.
