The Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ) is seeking a project 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 programes 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 researcher with a PhD in Chemistry, with experience in ligand and organometallic synthesis, water electrolysis, knowledge in techniques for catalyst deposition onto electrodes.
- Synthesis and scale up of the propietary catalysts (ligands and organometallic catalysts) suitable as water oxidation catalysts.
- Deposition of the catalysts onto the electrodes, and scale up of the deposition.
- Test the catalysts in electrolyzer and sensors.
