PostDoc – ANL

The Postdoctoral Appointee will be part of a team conducting applied R&D for the development of high-temperature electrochemical processes in molten salt electrolytes, including the pyrochemical treatment of used nuclear fuel, with the goal of recovering purified products for use in advanced reactors.

As a part of this work, you will:

  • Apply and improve pyroprocess operations such as electrorefining and oxide reduction at engineering- and pilot-scales in various systems to support industrialization.
  • Conduct standard electrochemical measurements (cyclic voltammetry, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, polarization tests, etc.) and innovative experiments in molten salt electrolytes to advance the technical understanding of processes occurring in molten salt and molten salt chemistry.
  • Assess and improve process efficiency, monitoring, and product quality and recovery to optimize cell design and operating conditions.
  • Communicate effectively with supervisors, peers, and Laboratory management through status updates, technical research reports, project presentations, and other regular channels.
