The Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ) is seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher with a PhD in Organic Chemistry to carry out research in the group of Dr Marcos García Suero. The researcher will work on the catalytic generation of carbyne equivalents and its application in solving synthesis problems based on a recent discovery (Nature, 2018, 554, 86, video).
This position will be funded by the Agencia Estatal de Investigación of the Ministerio de Ciencia, Innovación y Universidades – Europa Excelencia (MICIU – AEI / EUR2019-103814.).
ICIQ is committed to performing excellent research at the frontier of knowledge in the broad area of chemistry (Catalysis, Artificial Photosynthesis, Activation of Small Molecules, Photovoltaics, Functional Molecular Assemblies and Chemical Biology, from either theoretical or experimental perspectives). The institute also aims at training the future generation of scientists by offering high-quality educational programmes to master, PhD students and postdoctoral researchers (Full details on http://www.iciq.org/).
Our mission is to lead, from the vantage point of molecular science, cross-strategies for solving major social and economic challenges, such as climate change and sustainable supply of energetic and raw materials, thereby contributing to the establishment of a knowledge-based economy and improving citizens’ quality of life in our influence area.
- Discover and develop new catalytic reactions involving carbyne equivalents.
- Writing reports, preparation of scientific articles, and presentation of results in group meetings and conferences.
- Maintenance of laboratory equipment.
