The CUNY Energy Institute at The City College of New York is seeking a highly qualified postdoctoral researcher for the NSF-funded "Partnerships for International Research and Collaboration (PIRE)" project: Multi-scale, Multi-phase Phenomena in Complex Fluids for the Energy Industries. The candidate will conduct research on interfacial phenomena involving complex fluids under the CCNY-PIRE project (https://pire.ccny.cuny.edu/home/about/).
The candidate will perform experimental investigations on asphaltene behavior in multi-phase systems, including adsorption of asphaltenes at interfaces (e.g., solid rock surfaces or water-oil interfaces) and the implications of such processes on bulk fluid and transport properties.
The candidate is expected to have a Ph.D. in Chemical, Mechanical, or Petroleum Engineering, or another closely related field. Expertise in multi-phase transport phenomena is desired and familiarity with asphaltenes-related research is advantageous. The research will be conducted at the CUNY Energy Institute (https://www.ccny.cuny.edu/energy), located within The City College of New York’s (CCNY) Grove School of Engineering, where active and highly funded research programs are performed in the fields of energy storage, nuclear energy and the oil/gas/water nexus.
The appointment period will range between one and two years with an annual salary of $55,000, plus full fringe benefits. This position will be open until filled with review of applications to begin immediately.
