We seek to recruit an enthusiastic, highly motivated scientist with proven intellectual and technical abilities to work on a two-year project on electrochemical heterogeneous catalysis part-funded by the Max Planck Centre on the Fundamentals of Heterogeneous Catalysts (FUNCAT).
This position will aim to add to the research group’s capability in electrochemical heterogeneous catalysis and will seek to use this expertise to open up new areas in heterogeneous catalysis. The position will be part of the Max Planck Centre on the Fundamentals of Heterogeneous catalysis which is based in the Cardiff Catalysis Institute. A key aim is the design of new heterogeneous catalysis based on electrochemical processes.
The emphasis of the research at Cardiff will be concerned with carrying out the catalytic reactions and using the results to design improved catalysts. Experience in gas phase and liquid phase heterogeneously catalysed reactions is highly desirable.
Applicants must hold a PhD in a relevant area of electrochemical heterogeneous catalysis, or relevant industrial experience.
