We are currently looking for highly motivated candidates (m/f) with a strong background in catalysis and materials synthesis.
hte is offering Postdoctoral positions in the fields of:
-Metal Organic Synthesis / Sol-Gel Synthesis
-Synthesis of Crystalline Oxides like Phosphates, Vanadates and Molybdates
-Synthesis of Supported Multi-Metallic Catalysts
You are a highly motivated and enthusiastic researcher with a PhD degree in catalysis or in the field of materials science, with excellent skills in the field of materials synthesis and characterization. You can contribute to excellence in at least one of the following catalysis associated research domains:
-Materials synthesis via solid state and hydrothermal methods
-Organometallic synthesis with the goal of nano-structuring of catalysts, and/or
-Catalyst performance characterization
You are excited by solving fundamental research questions, and inspired by the prospect of creating catalytic materials and solving problems in catalysis with ground breaking performance in applications such as syngas chemistry, conversion of biomass, or activation of CO2, H2O and alkanes. One of your main challenges will be to smartly find new synthetic pathways to catalyst materials with new performance characteristics. Bridging the inorganic chemistry/catalysis disciplines with process engineering will be necessary to arrive at efficient, innovative catalytic materials and processes.
