Hydrogen is an alternative transportation fuel due to its ability to power fuel cells in zero-emission electric vehicles. While both government and industry have been working toward the adoption of clean, economical, and safe hydrogen fuels for transportation, the deployment of fueling stations plays a critical role in the hydrogen infrastructure. The current key challenge at hydrogen fueling stations is the “freezing lock” that occurs between the nozzle and the vehicle during the filling process at the relatively low operating temperature.

What we are looking for

We are looking for individuals with experience in one or more of the following topics:
  • Mechanical engineering: specifically, thermal dynamics
  • Material science
  • Aeronautical & Astronautical engineering
  • Anti-icing coating
  • Mechanical design for applications operating at subzero temperature
