NETL Graduate or Postdoctoral Researcher Positions

National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) Graduate or Postdoctoral Researcher

Particle/Material Strength Characterization

The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) in Morgantown, WV is seeking motivated graduate or postdoctoral researchers interested in working in particle and material strength characterization. NETL is developing a novel model that can predict particle mass loss rates as the material undergoes chemical and structural changes during reduction and re-oxidation in fluidized bed reactors. This initial work will involve identification of what particle properties are important in resisting comminution while maintaining chemical reactivity, and developing an understanding of how these properties change during the chemical cycling of the material so that a simple engineering population balance model can be developed to provide a first order approximation of the material loss during cyclic operation in a chemical looping reactor system.

Chemical Looping Combustion Oxygen Carrier Development/Evaluation

The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) in Morgantown, WV is seeking motivated graduate students interested in researching as part of the chemical looping combustion oxygen carrier development team at NETL. Successful candidates will work in the laboratories at NETL to develop oxygen carriers with stable reactivity and high physical integrity. Flow reactor studies, thermo-gravimetric analysis, sample preparation for flow reactor studies, thermodynamic analysis and determining reaction mechanisms, chemical and physical characterization of oxygen carriers, and energy analysis will be conducted in the laboratory.
