The researcher will be part of Prof. Sascha Ott’s research group at the Department of Chemistry – Ångström Laboratory.
Project description and work duties
The main task of this position is to conduct research. The research project entails the development of metal-organic framework (MOF)-based catalytic materials for the product-selective reduction of carbon dioxide. The MOFs will be interfaced on gas diffusion electrodes, which will then be integrated into different electrolyzer designs. The candidate will collaborate with several groups within Uppsala University and abroad.
Teaching may also be included, but up to no more than 20% of working hours. Participation in the supervision of degree projects and doctoral students is expected.
PhD degree or a foreign degree equivalent to a PhD degree in Chemistry or electrolyzer engineering. The degree needs to be obtained by the time of the decision of employment. Those who have obtained a PhD degree three years prior to the application deadline are primarily considered for the employment. The starting point of the three-year frame period is the application deadline. Due to special circumstances, the degree may have been obtained earlier. The three-year period can be extended due to circumstances such as sick leave, parental leave, duties in labour unions, etc.
The assessment of applications is based primarily on the applicant's ability to conduct independent research based on scientific skill.
The candidate is expected to work in a team, but to advance her/his project parts independently, to help in the supervision of younger co-workers, to be innovative and not afraid to acquire novel concepts and techniques. Emphasis will also be given to personal suitability, and a high level of written and spoken English is required.
Consideration will also be given to good collaborative skills, drive and independence, and how the applicant’s experience and skills complement and strengthen ongoing research within the department, and how they stand to contribute to its future development.
Previous experience in MOF-based catalysis and/or gas diffusion electrodes and electrolyzer engineering is a strong merit.
About the employment
The employment is a temporary position of 2 years according to central collective agreement. Scope of employment is 100 %. Starting date as agreed. Placement: Uppsala.
