POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH CONTRACT
The Job: This postdoctoral position will be funded by the Université de Paris through the granted MOPGA project. We target the electrocatalytic conversion of carbon dioxide into 2C+ high-value hydrocarbons and oxygenates. Our work encompasses coordination chemistry, electrocatalytic activity and product analysis, with in and ex situ methods for investigating structure-function relationships during electrocatalysis.
Investigate electrochemical responses of the synthesized coordination complexes in combination with quantification of chemical products using analytical techniques (NMR, GC, HPLC, etc)
Perform advanced characterization to develop mechanistic understanding (e.g. in situ UV-vis, IR, spectroelectrochemistry, … and ex situ surface electrode analysis)
Cooperate with project team members on the development of the catalysts and their possible integration in solid state materials.
Doctoral degree in chemistry, molecular electrochemistry, or a field closely related to the research topic (degree completion before June 2020)
Research experience in the following areas:
Required: electrochemistry and electrocatalysis
Additionally: Coordination chemistry, Analytical chemistry
Excellent English speaking and writing abilities
Proven track publication record in the electrochemistry and electrocatalysis field
Ability to work in a team as well as to independently lead a research project
Applicants should submit their CV with publications list, Master's transcript, proof of doctoral degree, contact information for two references, and a motivation letter (2 pg. max) detailing specific reasons for their interest and suitability for the position.
We offer: Fixed term contract for 12 months (with possibility of extension). The salary will be approximately 42.670€/year (brut).
Start date: Autumn 2020.
