● Advanced quantitative EIS interpretation – equivalent circuit design; data fitting
● Advanced quantitative understanding of electrochemical thermodynamics, kinetics and transport phenomena; interfacial phenomena; porous electrodes; double layer capacitance; charge transfer kinetics (with some quantum chemistry understanding), etc.
● Advanced mathematical knowledge (analytical and numerical solutions of PDEs, linear algebra, etc.); Mathematical modeling of complex electrochemical/chemical/mechanical systems
● Some experience in assembly of electrochemical cells (preferred) – fuel cells, flow cells, batteries, capacitors, etc.
● Some understanding of organic chemistry and reaction mechanism
● Excel, MATLAB (or equivalent), COMSOL (or equivalent), CAD software, data analysis, DigiElch (or equivalent), EIS simulation.
● Ability to work in cross-functional teams
● Strong oral and written communication skills
● Comfortable working in an evolutionary and dynamic startup environment

Dedicated to reversing climate change through the development and deployment of advanced technology. The company’s proprietary electro-swing process, developed at MIT, enables carbon dioxide and other acid gases to be captured with up to 80% less energy and 70% less cost than conventional approaches.
We are searching for an Electrochemical Engineer to join our R&D team. This position reports to the Chief Technology Officer (CTO).
