Postdoc In Zeolite Synthesis (M/F)

Universities and Institutes of France


July 11, 2022


  • Organisation/Company: CNRS
  • Research Field: Chemistry Physics
  • Researcher Profile: Established Researcher (R3)
  • Application Deadline: 11/07/2022 23:59 - Europe/Brussels
  • Location: France › CAEN
  • Type Of Contract: Temporary
  • Job Status: Full-time
  • Hours Per Week: 35
  • Offer Starting Date: 01/09/2022
  • Eu Research Framework Programme: H2020
  • The postdoc will be in charge of a research project devoted to the advanced synthesis of modern zeolite materials. The study of the effect of the different synthesis parameters on the resulting zeolite structures (in macro-, micro- and nanoscopic form) will be particularly important. The data obtained will serve as a basis and/or confirmation to rationalize and optimize the design of better zeolite materials in an incremental way for applications in the field of energy as well as the catalysis of different molecules of interest.

    The main objective of the project is to develop and characterize multi-scale zeolite materials for applications in the field of energy and catalysis.

    The project will be supervised by Valentin Valtchev (1st class research director, CNRS). The work will be carried out at the LCS - Laboratoire Catalyse & Spectrochimie (https: // www. located in Caen. The LCS has built its reputation on the operando spectroscopy of catalysts, that is to say on the observation of materials in the chemical reactor, in real time and during the reaction. Since 2009, the LCS has also been recognized worldwide for its research in the design of complex microporous materials, such as modern zeolite materials, with very specific and adjustable properties. Combining very strong poles in synthesis, in infrared spectroscopy, but also in NMR and Raman spectroscopy, the LCS occupies a unique place to carry out competitive research of the highest level in the field of energy, bioresources and materials. The selected candidate will be attached to UMR6506 and the zeolite team led by Dr. Valentin Valtchev.

    Eligibility criteria

    The candidate: - should have a PhD in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering or Physics or Engineering Physics or a related field. - Relevant experience in the synthesis of zeolites is necessary. - Solid experience in solid state characterization of nanoporous materials is a plus. - Be familiar with the field of nanoporous materials in the broad sense. -We are looking for a highly motivated candidate who can collaborate in an interdisciplinary team and work independently. - Be proficient in oral and written communication. - Mastery of English is indispensable.
