Call for ASSISTANT PROFESSOR position in the group "Catalytic Processes for Clean Energy"

Jerzy Haber Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry PAS invites applications for an ASSISTANT PROFESSOR in the CATALYTIC PROCESSES FOR CLEAN ENERGY group.

The candidates who meet the conditions stated in the act “Ustawa o Polskiej Akademii Nauk” dated 30 April 2010 (Dz.U. 2018 poz. 1475 z póź. zm.), art 89. Ust. 5 for the position of assistant professor are encouraged to apply for the position.

The Candidate will take part in research conducted by the group of CATALYTIC PROCESSES FOR CLEAN ENERGY, which includes the tests of catalytic reactions (mostly hydrogenation), preparation and characterization of supported catalysts consisting of noble metals nanoparticles.

In particular, the assistant professor will be responsible for:

  • The examination of catalytic hydrogenation in the three-phase system including reaction with carbonyl reactants.
  • The examination of supported catalysts with mono- and bimetallic noble nanoparticles (Pd, Pt, Ir, Ru, Re, Au).
  • Characterization of texture and morphology of catalysts as well as the properties of metallic phase (nanoparticles size, dispersion, lattice parameter) using the following techniques: X-ray diffraction XRD, photoelectron spectroscopy XPS, thermoprogrammed reduction TPR, chemisorption of CO and H2, electron microscopy SEM, TEM, HRTEM, energy dispersive spectrometry EDS, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy FTIR.
