The Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ) is seeking one 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 .
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 one postdoctoral researcher in the group of Prof. Antoni Llobet. The candidates will participate in the European RIA project : CONDOR - COmbined suN-Driven Oxidation and CO2 Reduction for renewable energy storage.
The research work to be developed is framed within the field of light induced redox catalysis with MOLECULAR transition metal complexes with a special focus on the water oxidation and CO2 reduction processes.
The overall objective is to develop powerful molecular catalysts that can be anchored on photoanodes and photocathodes to improve their overall performance.
The final goal is to build a photoelectrochemical cell for the generation of solar fuels.
Skills / Qualifications
