Researcher in Physical Chemistry with Focus on Preparation and Study of Semiconducting Polymer Nano-particles for Photocatalytic Proton Reduction with Hydrogenase

Applicants are invited to apply for a postdoctoral position in civil engineering at Uppsala University. All candidates regardless of citizenship are eligible to apply before January 02, 2020.

The Department of Chemistry – ngstrm conducts research and education in the chemistry field. The department has more than 230 employees and has a turnover just over 220 million SEK. At the department’s seven programs, we conduct very successful research of a high international standard. We have a large number of externally funded research projects, often with international cooperation and we see continued good growth in our subject area. The department has education assignments in engineering and civil engineering programs and master’s programs. More information is available on our website.

Work duties: The candidate will prepare organic polymer nano-particles and study their performance with regards to hydrogen generation from water in presence of hydrogenase as a catalyst. The research will be performed in collaboration with several researchers and research groups in Sweden. Specifically, the collaboration involves organic chemists as well as biochemists for the design of new components, and physical chemists for advanced spectroscopic measurements. The project will be performed at the division of Physical Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry - ngstrm Laboratory.

Requirements:The applicant is expected to have a PhD degree in Chemistry, or equivalent, with focus on photochemistry. Experience in preparation of nanoparticles and advanced spectroscopic measurements, such as transient absorption / fluorescence spectroscopy is expected. A high level of written and spoken English as well as the ability to work in a team is required.
