Research Associate in Supported Photoelectrocatalysts

Imperial College London is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a postdoc position. Citizens of any country are eligible to apply. Applications are invited up to September 27, 2018.

We are seeking to appoint a Research Associate in Supported Photoelectrocatalysts as part of team working on the 'Grand Challenge' of photoelectrochemical reduction of CO2, and other species, to liquid fuels, following the renewal of a major industrial grant in this area. This is a fixed-term appointment for 18 months.

The work will require the preparation of nanocabon supports for active catalyst materials. New types of ultrasmall, redox cyclable particles will be produced in a variety of geometries, including as exfoliated 2d monolayers. A detailed understanding of the structures produced, their performance and their evolution under reaction conditions is required to support the development of effective systems. The project is an interdisciplinary collaboration between Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at Imperial, and Chemistry in Oxford. Collaborations with other research groups within the College, and elsewhere, will also be encouraged.- To take initiative in the planning of the research, in collaboration with the lead investigator, and other collaborators- To identify and develop suitable techniques, and apparatus, for the collection and analysis of data- To collect and analyse data relevant to the project aims- To ensure the validity and reliability of data at all times- To maintain accurate and complete records of all findings- To travel, as required, for meetings with (potential) collaborators, to attend conferences, and project progress meetings- PhD or an equivalent level of professional qualifications and/or experience, in electron microscopy, or a closely related discipline- Experience of experimental nanomaterials chemistry, specifically the purification, dissolution and chemical modification of nanotubes or graphenes.- Experience of handling air sensitive reactions in a glove box, as well as a range of relevant research methods and techniques, specifically the application of, UV/vis, Fluorescence spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, electron microscopy, and thermal analysis (TGA, DSC, Pyr-MS) to nanomaterials and (functionalised) nanocarbons specifically. Funding is available for 18 months.

Any candidate who has not been awarded their PhD, will be appointed as a Research Assistant within the salary range 33,380 – 35,061per annum.
