Job Description

The successful candidate will join a project that aims to develop innovative photocatalytic processes for the conversion of renewable feedstock, specifically woody biomass, into amino acids with bio-/chemo-induced chirality. The research fellow will design and optimize these processes, and additionally work on the design of a catalytic system for ammonia decomposition.


  • Design and develop new photo catalytic processes to make amino acids from woody biomass feedstock.
  • Synthesize and characterize novel catalysts for amino acid synthesis.
  • Participate in the reactor and system design for ammonia cracking.
  • Contribute to the preparation of research reports, publications, presentations, and grant proposals.
  • Assist in the supervision of graduate students and junior research staff.
  • Comply with all safety regulations and environmental guidelines associated with laboratory work.

Job Requirements

  • PhD training in Chemical Engineering.
  • Proven experience in photo catalysis and green chemistry.
  • Knowledge of sustainable and renewable feedstocks, such as woody biomass.
  • Proficiency in using analytical techniques.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
