Who we are…
CERT Systems Inc (CERT) is on a mission to transform the way the world’s most important chemicals are made. Our breakthrough route to convert captured CO2 into valuable fuels and chemical feedstocks means that we can help the planet avoid over 500 million tonnes of emissions by 2040.
Who YOU are…
You have spent the last few years paying your dues in the research world, and you are ready to finally put those skills to work on interesting projects. You have always been the kind of person who likes to create new materials; you are excited about synthesizing new electrocatalysts for CO2 conversion. You are also mission-driven; you care about climate change, and you want to use your skills to help be part of a global solution.
What you’ll do day-to-day
- Synthesize nanomaterial catalysts to drive our patented process, looking for areas to optimize and improve along the way
- Develop catalyst ink formulations for integration on our electrodes and membrane electrode assemblies
- Optimize catalyst deposition procedures (spray coating, blade coating etc.)
- Collaborate with the electrolyzer testing team to validate and test the catalyst materials electrochemically
- Characterize the catalyst materials and analyze characterization data for quality control
- Diagnose catalyst failure and degradation mechanisms
- Design a process to scale catalyst material synthesis procedures
- A PhD in Materials Science, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Nanotechnology Engineering, or a related field
- 2+ years of industry or postgraduate experience in a relevant field; hands-on experience in a research or industrial lab, with extensive wet lab skills and training, and hands-on experience synthesizing nanomaterials, is a must!
- Able to work in-person in our Toronto location
