0806-23 – Postdoctoral Research Associate in Low Carbon Hydrogen Production (biomass gasification)
Aston University
Birmingham, United Kingdom, Europe

The researcher will contribute to the Supergen Bioenergy Impact Hub, undertaking experimental work on the area of “Low carbon hydrogen production”. The researcher will mainly work using a lab-scale gasification system for hydrogen production from biomass conversion, and the main research activities will take place at the Energy & Bioproducts Research Institute (EBRI). The researcher will conduct laboratory-based experimental work and will be required to set-up and manipulate a wide range of analytic equipment. Previous knowledge on thermochemical conversion of biomass, synthesis and characterisation of catalysis, fluidised beds, high-pressure gasification, will be relevant. The researcher will regularly meet and liaise with colleagues to ensure appropriate input, data sharing, and effective dissemination of results. As such, he/she will be expected to draft and submit high-quality papers, technical reports and contribute to grant funding applications to sustain continuous research group funding. The research associate will also be expected to engage and participate in project meetings and other relevant activities organised by the Supergen Bioenergy Hub.
