You’ll be involved in multiple projects. In close cooperation with scientists and project managers you will perform experiments and tests in our lab in Delft and Rijswijk, from bench to pilot scale, and on site at the premises of our (international) clients. In this capacity, you will be responsible for performing the actual experiments, pre-process the results and report and discuss the results with the scientists involved. Safety, quality and accuracy are top priorities and you’ll safeguard those during all experiments.

You will also support the scientist in defining the experimental setup and the test plan for the experiments that need to be performed. In some cases a dedicated setup needs to be developed and build – you will contribute to the design and construction, making sure all items are in place so that the envisioned results can be achieved.

You will be working in the Gas Treatment team. Gas treatment is one of the focus areas of the Sustainable Process & Energy Systems expertise group. The 17 highly motivated people in our international team share a drive to decarbonise industry. We offer you a collaborative and supportive environment, in which we work together to provide solutions for the industry.


You thrive on helping accelerate industrial decarbonisation by developing innovative, yet pragmatic carbon capture and utilisation solutions, combining developing and building setup with performing high quality laboratory experiments. You are handy with analytical instruments and also with building setups using e.g. Swagelok. You are a motivated trouble-shooter and comfortable in maintaining, repairing and upgrading laboratory set-ups. You like to work in projects that are challenging and can have strict deadlines. You are comfortable with working in different projects at the same time and flexible with travelling (in the Netherlands and abroad) and being away from home for short periods (like one week). You are an excellent communicator and can work closely with your fellow lab technicians in the lab, as well as during on-site work.


  • HBO in e.g., Process Technology, Chemical Engineering or analytical chemistry
  • 1 - 3 years of working experience in a process laboratory environment
  • Comfortable with working in a lab and are very focused on safety and quality.
  • Basic understanding in the challenges of developing technology that needs to be scaled up
  • Good command of written and spoken English, as you’ll be working in an international community.
  • Dedicated team-player who can also work independently.

TNO is an independent research organization. TNO believes in jointly creating economic and social value. Working at TNO motivates you to work together, contribute to improving the world and encouraging sustainability.

To achieve the European 2050 energy and climate targets for renewable energy, a multi-energy approach to energy generation and conversion is required to unleash the full potential of intermittent renewable energy sources. Energy storage (i.e. storage of electricity, heat and gas such as hydrogen) is indispensable for creating flexibility, allowing the balance between energy supply and demand profiles to be optimized. The Energy Conversion & Storage team is actively developing these technologies and is currently looking to expand with a research assistant.
