Employment

Postdoctoral Fellow

The Hunter Lab at The Rowland Institute at Harvard is now accepting applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow position starting Fall-Winter 2018/2019.

The Hunter Group will focus on developing molecules and materials for sustainable large-scale industrial processes, such as solar-driven seawater splitting, electrochemical nitrogen fixation and CO2 reduction, and selective hydrocarbon oxidation. The position will involve computational screening, synthesis, and characterization of molecular and heterogeneous catalysts. Candidates with expertise in all related areas of inorganic and materials chemistry are encouraged to apply. In particular, candidates should address their knowledge of and/or willingness to learn the following desired skills:

  • Laser spectroscopy (broadly defined)
  • Applied electrochemistry (both heterogeneous and homogeneous)
  • Reactor design and engineering
  • Characterization of materials (e.g. XRD, XPS, and related spectroscopies)
  • Characterization of molecules (e.g. GC, MS, UV-vis-NIR-IR)
  • Air-free techniques (glove box, standard Schlenk maneuvers)
  • Synthesis and characterization of geological materials
  • Familiarity with computer programming and/or data mining

The candidate will benefit from the experience of building a new lab, close contact with the PI (Dr. Bryan Hunter), and the interdisciplinary environment fostered at the Rowland Institute at Harvard and Harvard University.

Applications will be considered beginning September 1, 2018, with full consideration given to applications until the position is filled.

To apply, enthusiastic candidates with a Ph.D. in a relevant field (or those who expect to complete by December 31, 2018) should email the following to bhunter@rowland.harvard.edu.

  • Cover letter
  • CV including publications
  • Current and future research interests
  • Contact information for 3 references

Postdoctoral Fellow

The Wang Group at The Rowland Institute at Harvard is now accepting applications for a postdoctoral fellow position starting April 2018 or later.

The Wang Group’s focus is on energy and environment applications. Candidates with achievements, knowledge, and experience in areas including heterogeneous catalysis (such as CO2 hydrogenation, CH4 partial oxidation, low-T methanol reforming, solid oxide fuel cell, and so on), applied electrochemistry in energy/environment/sensors, electrochromic materials/devices, and microbial (electro)synthesis are preferred.

The candidate will benefit from the expertise of Wang group in catalysis, and the interdisciplinary environment fostered at the Rowland Institute at Harvard.

Full consideration will be given to applications received by December 15, 2017, but applications will continue to be accepted until the position is filled.

To apply applicants should email the following to hwang@rowland.harvard.edu.

  • Cover Letter
  • Complete CV
  • Statement of Past Research achievements
  • Statement of Future Research interests
  • List of 3 references
