Current research vacancies are listed below:

Research Associate in High Throughput Development of Oxidation Catalysts– Ref: 1434795

Publication date:

A position is available in University College London (UCL) for a research associate to work on an EPSRC consortium project, headed by Professor Jawwad Darr on the development of oxidation catalyst nanoparticles which are industrially relevant, particularly in water oxidation (and related reactions with brine) as part of a collaboration with Queens University Belfast and UK industry. The project will involve high throughput production and rapid testing of a large number of samples and scale-up of optimised nanoparticles in a flow processes and closely liaising with industry and academic partners. The nanomaterials will be manufactured using UCLs suite of continuous reactors (full training will be provided). The postholder will need to make and test samples and help maintain sample data information and be familiar with lab management systems.

Research Associates (x 4) for RCaH Advanced Impact Positions, - Ref:1433513

Publication date:

The EPSRC funded teams at the Research Complex at Harwell (RCaH) seek to appoint 8 outstanding candidates (4 Science/Academic and 4 Industrial based) as short term (2-6 months residencies) Impact Fellows/Visiting Researchers in an effort to increase the interaction and impact of the four Physical Science groups at the RCaH, namely: the UK Catalysis Hub (http://www.rc-harwell.ac.uk/UKCatalysisHub), the Dynamic Structural Science Group (http://www.rc-harwell.ac.uk/dynamic-structural-science-consortium), the X-ray Phase modulation group http://www.rc-harwell.ac.uk/robinson-group, and the Multi-scale X-ray Imaging Facility (MXIF) (http://www.rc-harwell.ac.uk/manchester-x-ray-imaging-facility). These four groups seek to appoint eight fellows/researchers to work on innovative research projects to integrate the groups and maximise impact on science and industry. It is expected that half of the researchers will be from academia and half from industry.
