Post-Doctoral Fellowship at Simon Fraser University Fuel Cell Lab

Post-Doctoral Fellow Position
Microstructural Modeling of PEM Fuel Cell Materials
Simon Fraser University Fuel Cell Laboratory
Vancouver, Canada
Starting Date: December 1, 2011

A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in the field of computational modeling of fuel cells. The work is part of a collaborative project with Ballard Power Systems and University of Victoria aimed at the development of next generation fuel cell systems with enhanced performance. The successful applicant will participate in the development of microstructural modeling of membrane-electrode assembly (MEA) components, including transport processes, mechanical stresses, and associated degradation mechanisms, and the integration of the component models into an MEA performance and lifetime simulator.

The position will involve regular part-time interaction with the industrial partner, supervision and collaboration with graduate and undergraduate students, and preparation of technical reports and papers. The appointment is for one year, and renewable for up to two additional years subject to performance.

The candidate must have a Ph.D. degree in Engineering (Mechanical, Chemical or Materials), Physics, Electrochemistry, or Applied Mathematics, and a strong background in computational modeling and at least one of the following areas: porous media, microscale transport phenomena, micro-structural modeling, advanced microscopy and image analysis, fuel cells. Good written communication skills in English are essential.

Interested candidates should send a detailed curriculum vitae, a description of research experience and interests, and names and contact information of at least two professional references to:

Prof. Erik Kjeang
Mechatronic Systems Engineering
Simon Fraser University
250-13450 102 Avenue, Surrey, BC V3T 0A3
