Applications are invited for one Postdoctoral positions in automated synthesis, processing and applications of layered functional materials “beyond graphene” as part of a European Research Council (ERC) granted project. You will have a PhD in Chemistry, Physics or Materials Science, a strong publication record, a pro-active approach and strong expertise in areas relevant to the project (e.g. diffraction methods, surface analytics, structural prediction techniques, materials synthesis).
This post-doctoral position will form part of a multi-disciplinary project team funded by the European Research Council (ERC). We deploy tools from polymer chemistry and the field of crystalline organic solids to extend the portfolio of microporous polymers and introduce a new class of crystalline fully-aromatic materials. Our team seeks to develop new heteroatom-containing covalent organic frameworks and utilise them in (nobel) metal-free energy storage and conversion. The project will use high-throughput methodologies and insights into donor-acceptor design of polymer frameworks.
