We’re recruiting!

We are looking for a talented individual to work in the area of supported molten-salt membranes and their application to carbon dioxide separation and reaction engineering.


Apply by 24th May 2023

You’ll be working in one of the UK’s prominent chemical engineering research groups with Prof. Ian Metcalfe, FREng and Dr Greg A. Mutch at Newcastle University.

Supported molten-salt membranes offer the opportunity to bypass traditional limitations of membrane separation processes by providing both high permeability and high selectivity in a single membrane. Their potential applications range from flue gas carbon dioxide capture to water-gas shift reaction engineering. Your role will be to fabricate and characterise supported molten-salt membranes, using our synthesis and fabrication laboratory, automated membrane gas permeation measurement facilities, and (typically via collaboration) cutting-edge characterisation techniques (diffraction, tomography, microscopy, spectroscopy, surface area and porosity analysis etc).

Applications must be received by 24th May 2023
