Position: Research Fellow in Solar Fuel Synthesis
Institution: University College London
Department: Chemical Engineering
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: We are seeking a Research Fellow to join a dynamic and multidisciplinary research team working on fabrication of photocatalysts and their application in both water splitting and nitrogen reduction driven by solar energy. The successful candidate will work in a multidisciplinary project, involving researchers from UCL Chemistry and Chemical Engineering and a few industrial partners with expertise in nanomaterials, catalysis, reactor engineering and modelling
Requirements: The ideal candidate should have, or should be close to completing, a PhD or equivalent in heterogeneous catalysis or photocatalysis. Expertise in heterogeneous catalysis and material chemistry is essential. You should be capable of working under your own initiative and leading a small research team, so excellent communication and organisational skills are also required
   
Text: Research Fellow in Solar Fuel Synthesis, - Ref:1786329 Click here to go back to search results Apply Now UCL Department / Division Chemical Engineering Location of position London Grade 7 Hours Full Time Salary (inclusive of London allowance) ?35,328-?40,437 per annum Duties and Responsibilities We are seeking a Research Fellow to join a dynamic and multidisciplinary research team working on fabrication of photocatalysts and their application in both water splitting and nitrogen reduction driven by solar energy. The Leverhulme Trust project targets to discover low cost and efficient photocatalysts (in particular polymer photocatalysts) for solar fuel synthesis by use of a Z-scheme and understand the mechanisms of the underlying the photochemical process. The group uses a wide range of wet chemical approaches for inorganic and polymeric material synthesis, and apply the state of the art spectroscopies to explore the reaction mechanism. Our long term aim is to generate an efficient Z-scheme system for renewable fuel synthesis. The post is for one year in the first instance and can be extended to 2 years. Key Requirements The successful candidate will work in a multidisciplinary project, involving researchers from UCL Chemistry and Chemical Engineering and a few industrial partners with expertise in nanomaterials, catalysis, reactor engineering and modelling. The ideal candidate should have, or should be close to completing, a PhD or equivalent in heterogeneous catalysis or photocatalysis. Expertise in heterogeneous catalysis and material chemistry is essential. Experience of photocatalysis and spectroscopic analysis is advantageous. You should be capable of working under your own initiative and leading a small research team, so excellent communication and organisational skills are also required. Appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at research assistant Grade 6B (salary ?30,922 - ?32,607 per annum) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis.
