About Holy Grail

Holy Grail uses electrons to capture carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and contribute to the long term sustainability of humans and other species on Earth

About the role

We are looking for an electrochemist to join our team and help bring our modular CO2 scrubbers to market. The job consists of electrochemical systems development and testing, materials selection, automated experiments setup and data analysis using probabilistic modelling methods. We are looking for  candidates that care about the problem we are working on (excess CO2 in the atmosphere).

This role will be located in Mountain View, candidates should be able to start immediately or by July 1st, the latest.

Responsibilities:

  • Select materials for electrochemical systems

  • Optimize Ionic conductivity of solid and liquid electrolytes

  • Design experiments (aided by modelling)

  • Apply academic research findings from analogous fields

  • Assemble and characterize electrochemical systems

  • Collaborate with mechanical engineers, chemical engineers and design engineers to develop manufacturing processes

Requirements:

  • Deep understanding of redox reactions physics, small molecule diffusion and ionic transport in solid and liquid electrolytes

  • Experience with electrochemical testing (CV, CA, EIS, CP)

  • Experience with materials characterization (TGA, FTIR, DSC)

  • Ability to communicate complex concepts

  • Ability to learn quickly and persevere

  • Advanced degree in electrochemistry, material science or related fields

Nice to have:

  • Fuel cell and/or electrolyser fabrication and testing knowledge or experience

  • Experience with SEM, EDX, TEM and GC

What to expect:

You will join a compact team passionate about having an impact on climate change and protecting nature. We care about the optimal way to solve a problem and nurture a culture of creativity and collaboration based on quick iterations.

Technology

We use electrons instead of pressure or temperature swings to capture carbon dioxide from the atmosphere
