CIC energiGUNE is seeking for a researcher with a background in Chemical sciences with the hands on expertise in :
Nanoporous materials synthesis including metal-organic frameworks, ceramics, carbon materials, etc.
Experience in at least some of the relevant characterization techniques such as gas adsorption, porosimetry, TEM, SEM, FTIR, Raman, AFM, XPS, NMR, etc.
Familiarity with wettability characterization and control.
The following experience will be considered as advantageous :
Superhydrophobic and superlyophobic materials synthesis;
Monolith porous materials synthesis;
Hierarchical porous materials synthesis
Porous materials synthesis scale up;
Solid-liquid interfacial interactions;
Contact electrification (triboelectrification);
Familiarity with energy storage applications. The position is open within FET Proactive project Electro-intrusion, which received funding from European commission and is dedicated to investigation of contact electrification and thermal effects during forced non-wetting liquid intrusion and its spontaneous extrusion into-from nanopores for the benefit of storage and conversion application.
This exciting project implies active collaboration with theoretical, experimental and engineering teams members of the project consortium.
Job functions :
Perform high-quality research within the scope of the project.
Publish the obtained results in high impact journals.
Present the obtained results in international conferences.
Provide guidance to PhD-, Master- and visiting-students when required.
We are offering a 3-year contract and advantageous professional development opportunities. A prolongation of the contract for 2 additional years is possible subjected to a positive performance assessment.
