PhD position 180917

A 12 month predoctoral contract (with possible extension) is available at the ITQ, Instituto de Tecnología Química (UPV-CSIC). The position is within the framework of a project that proposes a new approach to address the challenge of intermittent energy storage.

Project: Magnetic and Plasmonic Catalysts for Intermittent Energy Storage

The thesis project will be focused on the design and synthesis of metal catalysts, which can be heated by an oscillating magnetic field or visible light. The candidate will be involved in the production and full characterization of magnetic and plasmonic catalysts. After that, the student will evaluate their catalytic activity in processes related to Intermittent Energy Storage.

The project will be carried out in the ITQ, a multidisciplinary research institute that is an international reference center in the area of catalysis and new materials. It offers excellent working conditions and is equipped with all the facilities necessary to carry out the project.

Required qualifications and experience

Candidates should have a Master degree in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering or a related discipline. Candidates that are in the process of their Master thesis defense in the next 3 months will also be considered.

Previous experience in synthesis of air and moisture sensitive compounds, material science techniques (TEM, HRTEM, XRD and XPS), organometallic chemistry, metal nanoparticles and/or catalysis would be highly appreciated but not mandatory. The candidate will work in a multidisciplinary and an international environment, thus good written and oral communication skills in English are necessary.

Conditions

Beginning: October-December 2018

Duration: 12 months

Salary: 1200 €/month (14 payments)

 

Contact

Please send (before 15th October) a detailed CV, expedient and a cover letter as soon as possible by email to Dr. Luis M. Martínez-Prieto to the following address: luimarp5@upvnet.upv.es

Predoctoral contract position in heterogeneous catalysis

Predoctoral contract position in heterogeneous catalysis

Offered

A 30-month predoctoral contract (with possible extension) at the Instituto de Tecnología Química (ITQ, UPV-CSIC).

The Institute

The Instituto de Tecnología Química (ITQ) is a joint research center of the Spanish Research Council (CSIC) and the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV), located in the excellent and vibrant UPV Campus at the seaside in Valencia (Spain). It is an international reference center in the area of catalysis and new materials which hosts 33 staff scientists alongside more than 75 PhD and postdoctoral researchers and technical staff members, and holds the Severo Ochoa Excellence accreditation since the creation of this program in 2011, which recognizes and supports Spanish research institutions, from all scientific and technological areas, which demonstrate international scientific leadership through high-impact innovations. The institute has also a strong ties and long tradition of R&D and technology transfer activities with industrial partners. Visit the website for more information: http://itq.upv-csic.es/en/

The project

The project is supported as part of the funding program Scientific Excellence of Junior Researchers of the Regional Valencian government (SEJI/2018/011) and focuses on the design, synthesis and regio-selective functionalization of solid catalyst materials for processes of relevance in the valorization of carbon resources alternative to petroleum, such as (unconventional) natural gas or bio-syngas into platform chemicals. A central topic of the thesis will be the concept of tandem catalysis, a relevant process intensification strategy relying on the integration of two catalysts to effect sequential catalytic transformations in a single reactor. The ITQ is a multidisciplinary research institute which offers excellent working conditions, high-quality training in scientific, professional and soft skills as well as outstanding facilities to carry out the project.

Candidate qualifications

Candidates should hold a Master degree in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering or a related discipline. Candidates with a prospective MSc thesis dissertation within the next few months will also be considered. Skills in the synthesis of nanomaterials and/or porous materials, material science characterization methods such as electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, gas physisorption, etc, and catalysis would be highly appreciated albeit not mandatory. The candidate will enroll in a multidisciplinary and international working environment, thus good written and oral communication skills in English are necessary.

Conditions

Beginning: August-October 2018

Salary: ca. 17000 €/year

Please send a letter of motivation and CV per email to Dr. Gonzalo Prieto: prieto@itq.upv.es

Predoctoral Contract: Magnetic and Plasmonic Catalysts for Intermittent Energy Storage (Power-to-Gas)

PhD proposition 2018

A 12-18 month predoctoral contract (with possible extension) is available at the Instituto de Tecnología Química (ITQ, UPV-CSIC). The position is within the framework of a project that proposes a new approach to address the challenge of intermittent energy storage.

Project: Magnetic and Plasmonic Catalysts for Intermittent Energy Storage (Power-to-Gas)

The thesis project will be focused on the design and synthesis of highly stable silica-confined metal catalyst, which can be heated by an oscillating magnetic field or visible light. The candidate will be involved in the production and full characterization of magnetic and plasmonic supports. The second step will include the generation of metal nanoparticles (MNPs) inside these supports. Finally, the student will evaluate their catalytic activity in processes related to P2G (methanation or Fischer Tropsch synthesis), using an oscillating magnetic field or light as heat source.

The project will be carried out in the ITQ, a multidisciplinary research institute that is an international reference center in the area of catalysis and new materials. It offers excellent working conditions and is equipped with all the facilities necessary to carry out the project.

Required qualifications and experience

Candidates should have a Master degree in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering or a related discipline. Candidates that are in the process of their Master thesis defense in the next 3 months will also be considered.

Previous experience in synthesis of air and moisture sensitive compounds, material science techniques (TEM, HRTEM, XRD and XPS), organometallic chemistry, metal nanoparticles and/or catalysis would be highly appreciated but not mandatory.
