Practicing open innovation, we provide custom R&D services, technology, expertise, best practices, and intellectual property to Fortune 500 and Global 1000 companies, startups, and government agencies and partners. We create new business options, accelerate time to market, augment internal capabilities, and reduce risk for our clients. Since its inception, PARC has pioneered many technology platforms - from the Ethernet and laser printing to the GUI and ubiquitous computing - and has enabled the creation of many industries. Incorporated as an independent, wholly owned subsidiary of Xerox in 2002, PARC today continues the research that enables breakthroughs for our clients' businesses. Postdoctoral Researcher: Sorbents and Systems for CO 2 Capture The Hardware Research and Technology Laboratory (HRTL) at PARC (A Xerox Company) is a group of multi-disciplinary scientists and engineers who enjoy the opportunity to invent and develop new technologies, foster innovation, and launch new businesses. Research conducted by HRTL spans a wide range of technologies, including: 3D printing, technologies for carbon capture and emissions reduction, and much more. The Materials Interfaces and Processes group within HRTL is looking for a chemical engineer, chemist or materials scientist to lead the development of new high-performance sorbents and processes for capturing CO 2 . The candidate will design experiments, synthesize new sorbents, characterize their properties, and model their performance in CO 2 capture processes. The successful candidate is someone who can innovate at the boundary of materials design and chemical processes. Moreover, the ideal candidate is one who can acquire new skills quickly, invent technology and direct its development, and drive new fields of research in CO 2 capture, separations technologies, and beyond. The candidate should have excellent communication skills and be someone who can successfully compete for government research funding and share research in peer-reviewed forums. Responsibilities: -- Evaluate properties of sorbents using techniques such as N 2 adsorption porosimetry, thermogravimetric analysis and analytical chemistry techniques (FT-IR, UV-vis, etc.) -- Design experiments and experimental apparatuses for sorbent processing and evaluation -- Design and model gas separation and adsorber unit operations based on novel materials -- Investigate new research directions and seek funding opportunities -- Contribute to a wide range of HRTL activities as a subject matter expert in materials design for chemical processes -- Document research activities and communicate findings within PARC and to the broader scientific community, and participate in review meetings with Dept. of Energy Qualifications: -- Doctoral degree in chemical engineering, materials science, chemistry, or related fields.
