The Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ) is seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher
This position will be funded by EU project NEFERTITI (ref 101022202) Innovative photocatalysts integrated in flow photoreactor systems for direct CO2 and H2O conversion into solar fuels.
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 https://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 to carry out research in the group of Prof. Emilio Palomares with experience on the synthesis of materials with potential application as catalysts for the electrochemical and/or photochemical reduction of carbon dioxide and the generation of other products.
The researcher will be responsible for the development and characterization of materials and their application as electro/photo catalysts in the reduction of CO2 and the generation of other products of interest. Moreover, she/he will be supervising Ph.D. researchers and Master students.
The researcher will deliver internal reports and write manuscripts based on the experimental results. His/her participation in national and international proposals is also encouraged.
