Raayai Lab - Postdoctoral Candidate openings

2 Open positions

(1)Applications are invited for a full-time Postdoctoral Fellowship position in experimental fluid mechanics, at Raayai Lab at Rowland Institute at Harvard University. The project is focused on the experimental study of flow over textured rigid and soft surfaces in laminar, transitional, and turbulent flows. The primary role of this position will be to design and fabricate samples, plan and lead experiments, and acquire and analyze data; prepare peer-reviewed journal articles and present the work at professional conferences. Opportunity to participate in the development of new research ideas and research proposals may be available. Candidates will also be highly encouraged to use this opportunity to gain experience with new skills and techniques.

The ideal candidate must

  • already have, or be close to completing, a PhD in a topic related to fluid mechanics and/or fluid-solid interactions;

  • have experience in experimental fluid mechanics especially particle image velocimetry and operating high-powered lasers;

  • demonstrate the ability to perform advanced data analysis;

  • have experience in design and fabrication of samples and experiments;

  • show the ability to adapt to a multifaceted project to achieve the objectives.

Interested applicants are invited to submit their application directly to Dr. Raayai (sraayai@fas.harvard.edu), which includes a cover letter, CV, and list of references. Select applications will be contacted for further interview.

Hunter Lab - Postdoctoral Candidate opening

**NOTE: Due to the timeline for this hire, Harvard will not sponsor work visas for this position**

The Hunter Lab at The Rowland Institute at Harvard is now accepting applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow position starting Fall 2021. This position will end at Harvard University on August 31, 2022 but is renewable at Northwestern University when the lab moves in Fall 2022.

The Hunter Group focuses 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.

This position will involve synthesis and characterization of molecular and heterogeneous CO2 reduction catalysts. Candidates with expertise in all related areas of inorganic and materials chemistry are encouraged to apply. A working knowledge of on-line product detection using gas chromatography is highly desirable.

Applications will be considered beginning October 1, 2021 and will be considered until the
position is filled.
