The research will focus on applying fundamental principles to industrially-relevant systems, and will require the development of zeolite-based catalysts.

Responsibilities will include:
  • The post-doctoral scholar will synthesize zeolite-based catalysts, characterize them, and elucidate their structure-property relationships under industrially relevant conditions.
  • Mentor and collaborate with undergraduate/MS students and PhD candidates on research.
