Photocatalytic conversion of CO2 to high value-added products

Description:

In the frame of the project “Tailored-made catalysts for targeted reactions”, funded by Xunta de Galicia within the call Ayudas para la atracción y retención de talento investigador, we offer a research project aiming at the development of photocatalysts for the conversion of carbon dioxide into high value-added products. To achieve this goal, a fundamental catalyst design approach will be adopted in order to derive structure-performance relationships applying precision synthesis of nanostructured materials, evaluation of catalysts and kinetic studies, advanced characterization, and detailed mechanistic studies.

The selected candidate will conduct his/her doctoral thesis in the TeamNanoTech group at CINBIO (www.cinbio.es).

Qualification:

Master in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, or Materials Science with above-average academic records, fluent in oral and written English, and motivated by scientific research. Prior experience in heterogeneous catalyst design is advantageous.

Duration of the contract:

The initial duration of the contract is 4 months and can be extended up to 3.5 years.

Salary:

1.250 € gross per month.

Starting date:

1st October 2021.

Deadline for the receipt of the applications:

31st August 2021.

Selection process:

The selection process will be conducted by a committee of 3 researchers from the TeamNanoTech group.

Contact details:

Interested candidates should send a letter of motivation, academic record, and CV in a single PDF file to begona.puertolas@uvigo.es
