Full Time

Applications are invited for a temporary post of a Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 1within UCD School of Chemical & Bioprocess Engineering.

We are looking for a highly motivated and talented Postdoctoral Research Scientist Fellow to take on a lead role in the development and economic evaluation of next-generation technologies to revalorise/upcycle waste fluorinated gases.

The current global amount of fluorinated gas in use is equivalent to 24 billion tons of CO2. Because of their contribution to climate change, the use of fluorinated gases is being phased out. However, their recovery rates are low, in part, due to their low economic value. This project aims to develop novel catalytic processes to transform fluorinated gases to high added value chemicals and, in so doing, provide economic incentives to increase the recovery rate of these greenhouse gases.

Postdoctoral Researcher 2017 Level I - Salary Scale €42,033 - €48,427 per annum

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

Closing date: 17:00hrs (local Irish time) on 16th of October 2023.

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.
