Postdoctoral Fellowship: CO2 Membranes


Project: CO2 separation membranes

CSIRO Materials Science and Engineering is seeking to appoint a Post doctoral Fellow who will conduct research into MOF-based CO2 separation membranes. Novel mixed-matrix-membrane architectures will be developed that are optimised for specific real-world CO2 mixtures, the membranes will be further enhanced by the incorporation of specially devised MOFs derived from SIEF collaborators, optimised for these separations.
Specifically you will:

  • Contribute to the Materials for Energy, Water, and Environment research group within the Surfaces, Thin Films and Interfaces Program.
  • Synthesise and conduct research on MOF-based CO2 Separation Membranes with the ultimate goal of incorporating novel MOFs discovered by other members of the SIEF team to deliver optimal properties.
  • Report results in oral and written form, and write papers for peer-reviewed Journals, reports and patents.
  • Help build the research reputation of the Materials for Energy, Water, and Environment research group to help meet its scientific and organisational objectives.

Location: Clayton,VIC
Salary: $75K – $82K per annum plus up to 15.4% superannuation
Tenure: 2 years
Ref No: PF12/00030

To be successful you will have:

  • A PhD degree in materials science, materials engineering, applied chemistry, chemical engineering or related area
  • A demonstrated ability to carry out research and publish in the area of metal organic frameworks, or membrane separations.
  • Strong written and oral communication skills including an ability to publish research results write reports and make scientific presentations to audiences with scientific and non-scientific background.
