Description

  • Organisation/Company: Institute of Physical Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences
  • Research Field: Chemistry › Heterogeneous catalysis
  • Researcher Profile: First Stage Researcher (R1)
  • Application Deadline: 23/06/2021 00:00 - Europe/Brussels
  • Location: Poland › Warsaw
  • Type Of Contract: Other
  • Job Status: Part-time
  • Hours Per Week: 12
  • Offer Starting Date: 01/10/2021
  • Reference Number: Recruitment 21-2021
  • Student – scholarship position available in the Institute of Physical Chemistry PAS within National Science Center (NSC) OPUS 17 Project No. UMO-2019/33/B/ST5/01271 entitled “Novel nanocatalysts in the continuous - flow selective hydrogenation processes towards formation of pharmaceutical intermediates” (leader dr hab. Anna Śrębowata).

    Job description: OPUS 17's research strategy focuses on developing new 3d transition metal catalysts (Co, Cu, Ni, Fe) for hydrogenation processes, using molecular hydrogen, leading to the formation of high-value chemicals such as vitamin and drug precursors. The planned research will allow creating a relationship between the structure of catalysts and their reactivity in these processes. Catalytic tests will be conducted in a continuous flow mode, which greatly simplifies the process and allows large-scale reactions to be carried out, using different substrates in the sequence, on the same catalyst, thus limiting its amount used. Student will be involved in the synthesis of monometallic and bimetallic catalysts, their thoroughly characterization by physicochemical methods and their investigation in the continuous - flow hydrogenation process. MSc student will be directly supervised by the leader of the project.

    Benefits

    We offer 1000 PLN per month stipend financed from the NSC OPUS 17 Project No. UMO-2019/33/B/ST5/01271 The position is for a period of 9 months.
