Applications are invited for a temporary post of a UCD Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 1 or 2 within UCD School of Chemistry.

This post is funded by Science Foundation Ireland to investigate methods to degrade Per- and Poly-Fluorinated Alkyl Substances (PFAS) employing a combination of heterogeneous photocatalysis and fungal biocatalysis. The project is a collaboration between Prof Cormac Murphy, UCD School of Biomolecular and Biomedical Science (biocatalysis) and Prof James Sullivan, UCD School of Chemistry (photocatalysis).

The post involves working in the group of Prof Sullivan and would suit a chemist with knowledge of heterogeneous catalysis. Experience in the preparation, characterisation and application of heterogeneous photocatalysis in aqueous systems would be a distinct advantage. Furthermore, knowledge of the methods for analysis of various PFAS (along with anticipated products of photocatalytic reaction of these) would be beneficial.

This is a research focused role, where you will conduct a specified programme of research supported by research training and development under the supervision and direction of a Principal Investigator.

The primary purpose of the role is to further develop your research skills and competences, including the processes of publication in peer-reviewed academic publications, the development of funding proposals, the mentorship of graduate students along with the opportunity to develop your skills in research led teaching.

Depending on Level:

Salary Range: Level 1 €42,782 - €49,177 per annum.

Fixed Salary: Level 2 Fixed Salary: €50,440 per annum

Appointment on the above range will be dependent upon qualifications and experience.

Closing date: 17:00hrs (local Irish time) on the 4th of January 2024.

Applications must be submitted by the closing date and time specified. Any applications which are still in progress at the closing time of 17:00hrs (Local Irish Time) on the specified closing date will be cancelled automatically by the system. UCD are unable to accept late applications.

UCD do not require assistance from Recruitment Agencies. Any CV's submitted by Recruitment Agencies will be returned.

The PD1 position is intended for early stage researchers, either just after completion of a PhD or for someone entering a new area for the first time. If you have already completed your PD1 stage in UCD or will soon complete a PD1, or you are an external applicant whose total Postdoctoral experience, inclusive of the duration of the advertised post, would exceed 4 years, you should not apply and should refer to PD2 posts instead.

The PD2 post is intended for researchers that have completed PD1. As with the PD1, if you have already completed your PD2 stage in UCD or will soon complete a PD2, or your total Postdoctoral experience, inclusive of the duration of the advertised post, would exceed 6 years, you should not apply and should refer to Research Fellow posts instead.
