The European Bioenergy Research Institute is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate (PDRA), who will assist in the delivery of particular research tasks assigned to Aston University as a partner of Horizon 2020 research consortium ABC-Salt: Advanced biomass catalytic conversion to middle distillates in molten salts (https://www.abc-salt.eu). The PDRA will have the opportunity to work on thermal characterisation and processing of biomass in the laboratories of the European Bioenergy Research Institute (EBRI) at Aston University. The post-holder will be responsible for a wide range of activities, but will primarily be focused on undertaking original research, which will mainly focus on biomass thermal decomposition kinetics and hydrogenation kinetics assessed from both atmospheric (standard) and high-pressure thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). In addition to the TGA experiments the post holder also will be involved in catalytic hydrothermal liquefaction experiments with full characterisation of catalysts, feedstock and products. The role holder will be expected to take an active part in the research, contributing to the writing of research papers for publication and project reports, and assisting with supervision of research students.
