The project will be linked to collaborative research projects in the department with other university partners and the chemical industry. The position will involve the synthesis of inorganic, metal-organic, and nanostructured materials, as well as detailed structural characterization, and catalyst testing.

The project has a strong dimension of application of international large-scale facilities for materials characterization. These experiments will be performed at neutron sources and synchrotrons located in Europe, USA, and Japan. You are expected to be actively engaged in all aspects of these experiments.


Application Deadline: November 11, 2018.
