The Opportunity

This Research Associate (RA) position will contribute to the £9 million EPSRC Programme Grant ‘SynHiSel’, which is funded by EPSRC and in collaboration with colleagues at Bath, Manchester, Newcastle, Imperial College, Queen Mary universities.

Chemical separations are critical to almost every aspect of our lives, from the energy we use to the medications we take, but consume 10-15% of the total world energy. Highly selective membranes could make these separations 10-times more efficient and save 100m tonnes/year of CO2 emissions annually. More selective separation processes are needed for renewable energy, clean growth, waste recovery, pharma and food processing, water treatment and many others.

The SynHiSel team’s vision is to develop the high selectivity membranes needed to enable the adoption of a novel generation of emerging high-value/high-efficiency processes.


Knowledge, Skills, and Experience:

A good undergraduate degree and a PhD in Chemical Engineering or a clearly related area, with a focus on membranes, or a closely related area.

Proven track record of research in gas separation membranes, with a specific focus on experimental study of diffusion and permeation or a closely related area.

Experience in delivering research project results in a peer-reviewed journals.

Capable of working collaboratively with researchers from different disciplines or technical background.
