  • Postdoc: Sustainability of Future Fuel and Engine Technologies
    Clean Combustion Research Center (CCRC)
    King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST)

    The Combustion and Pyrolysis Chemistry (CPC) group within the Clean Combustion Research Center (CCRC) is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to lead techno-economic and sustainability assessments of various combustion related energy technologies. These assessments will provide appropriate metrics for making decisions regarding sustainability of future fuels, combustion technologies, and their technical viability. A key focus will be placed on novel alternative fuels blended with petroleum fuels, low-grade fuels in power generation and marine sectors, advanced transportation engine concepts, carbon capture and storage, and plasma-assisted combustion.

    The researcher will also be required to study the complexities related to pricing of energy technologies, recent climate policies, and other sustainability related issues. These complexities will be assessed together with detailed understanding of combustion technologies to determine the most suitable technologies for a sustainable future. The researcher will be expected to develop and apply modeling tools to achieve these goals.

    -This assignment requires excellent modelling, technical and analytical skills as well as research abilities.
    -Demonstrated experience with life cycle assessment modeling, systems modeling, and chemical and energy process modeling

    Required Skills
    Ample knowledge of sustainability issues, energy sectors, and transportation industry
    Fluency in oral and written English
