Posting Number: 2021795F
Position Title: Postdoctoral Research Fellow - Chemical and Biological Engineering
Position Type: Faculty
Location: Villanova, PA
Recruitment Type: Internal/External Applicants
Work Schedule: full-time/12-months
Department: 203-Chemical Engineering
Position Summary:

The Chemical and Biological Engineering Department has an immediate opening for a research fellow to continue seminal work on the development of improved adsorbents for gas separation and utilization.

Villanova is a Catholic university sponsored by the Augustinian order. Diversity and inclusion have been and will continue to be an integral component of Villanova University’s mission. The University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer and seeks candidates who understand, respect and can contribute to the University’s mission and values.

Duties and Responsibilities:

The research fellow will provide ongoing daily leadership to both graduate and undergraduate students working within two ongoing research initiatives that currently involve 1 graduate student and 6 undergraduate students and will work closely with faculty. The fellow will provide critical daily guidance to the planning, execution, data analysis and interpretation of results from the research. This position will include the primary responsibility for the maintenance, training, and documentation of meta data from existing and future instrumentation used to characterize the structure, composition, textural properties, and key performance parameters for novel synthetic compositions being developed for targeted, more efficient and sustainable applications in the industrial gas, energy, and chemicals industries.

The fellow will aid in the completion of manuscripts for peer-reviewed publications and external grants to establish external funding for the ongoing research efforts. The fellow will be expected to provide timely summaries in both oral and written form and present the research results to both national and local organizations interested in catalysis and gas separations.

Minimum Qualifications:

Ideal candidates should have working knowledge of the synthesis of zeolites and advanced inorganic composite compositions, characterization, and use of adsorption measurements to define performance parameters for ongoing projects. Application of existing kinetic models and expansion of these models to new geometries will be required. The efficient operation of the instrumentation and centralized data collection systems housed within the Energy and Materials group within the CBE department is required.

Preferred Qualifications:

PhD in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, or Material Science. Experience with synthesis of zeolites, sorbents, and catalysts and the methods used to characterize them. Demonstrated ability to advance discovery-driven research projects. Good verbal and written communication skills are required.
