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. Arjan Kleij. The candidate will participate in a collaborative project with a multinational company having activities in the area polymer materials. The researcher will focus his/her research on the catalytic development and scale up (to hundreds of g – kg scale) of pre-selected polymers with specific functionalities and properties.
- The candidate will conduct independent research as well as in collaboration with representatives of the multinational, and with some of the Kleij group members and members of ICIQ’s innovation and scale-up laboratory with relevant expertise to the project.
