The Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ) is seeking a Postdoctoral researcher.
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.
ICIQ is looking for a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Prof. Antoni Llobet. The candidate will participate in the European project FET-Proactive: LICROX – Light assisted solar fuel production by artificial CO2 Reduction and water Oxidation. The research work to be developed is framed within the field of light induced redox catalysis with MOLECULAR transition metal complexes with a special focus on the water oxidation and CO2 reduction processes.
The overall objective is to develop powerful MOLECULAR catalysts that can be anchored on photoanodes and photocathodes to improve their overall performance. The final goal is to build a photoelectrochemical cell for the generation of solar fuels.
LICROX project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 951843
- The candidate will conduct independent research as well as in collaboration with group members of the group and/or the project.
