Researcher in Catalytic Process Development for Renewable Fuels

EPFL - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne

Lausanne, Switzerland

Your mission:

The Group of Catalysis for Biofuels (GCB) targets the production of liquid biofuels by thermochemical and catalytic processes from biomass, carbon dioxide or syngas. We are currently working in our small group on the development of energy-efficient processes for the production of polyoxymethylene ethers (OME) as bio-based Diesel fuel substitute and the reverse water gas shift (RWGS) reaction, but are open to expand our field of activities.

To support the group in working on current and new research topics, we are looking for a chemical engineer or technical chemist with focus on heterogeneous catalysis.

Main duties and responsibilities include:

  • Research and development in the field of catalytic processes for renewable fuels;
  • Development of your own research profile by creating new research ideas and co-authoring research proposals;
  • Close collaboration with other EPFL laboratories and the Bioenergy and Catalysis Laboratory at the Paul Scherrer Insitute (PSI);
  • Publication of research results in scientific journals and at congresses;
  • Supporting the research group with your expertise in heterogeneous catalysis;
  • Supervision of PhD and master students.

Your profile:

  • University degree with dissertation in chemical engineering or chemistry;
  • In-depth knowledge of heterogeneous catalysis, catalytic reaction engineering and spectroscopic methods;
  • Pleasure in experimental work;
  • High level of self-motivation to work very independently in a small familiar group;
  • Very good English skills and ideally knowledge of French in order to integrate easily into the group and the EPFL.
