The Walton Lab at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Georgia, is seeking to hire 3 postdoctoral fellows to lead new projects in water harvesting, carbon dioxide capture, and methane storage. These programs focus on synthesis of porous materials, e.g., metal-organic frameworks and hierarchical silicas, characterization of adsorbents, and gas and vapor adsorption measurements. The individuals selected for these positions will play a leading role in all technical aspects of the projects, overseeing project reporting to sponsors, manuscript preparation and editing, day-to-day planning, and conducting lab experiments.

At Georgia Tech, we are committed to fostering a collaborative and inclusive research environment. We encourage applications from individuals of all backgrounds and are dedicated to supporting our postdoctoral fellows throughout their career development. This position requires relocation to Atlanta, GA. Remote work is not possible. The initial appointment will be for one year, with the expectation of renewal for one additional year, contingent upon satisfactory performance and availability of funding.
