The Glusac group is looking for a Postdoctoral Research Associate with expertise in the molecular synthesis of energy-related organic/inorganic materials. The Postdoctoral Research Associate is expected to work on the synthesis of three-dimensional porous architectures (such as metal-organic frameworks) that incorporate nanocarbon-based chromophores, metal-based catalysts and CO2-capturing groups for efficient capture and photochemical conversion of CO2. More information about the project can be found here: https://scitechdaily.com/like-a-leaf-new-artificial-photosynthesis-method-to-capture-co2-directly-from-the-air-and-turn-it-into-fuel/
The anticipated start date for the position is Jan 10, 2022. The Glusac labs are located at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) and at the Argonne National Laboratory (ANL). The postdoc’s host institution will be UIC but they are expected to perform part of their research at ANL as well. Interested candidates should apply on the UIC jobs board.
Duties: Perform the synthesis of MOF-based materials for photoreactive CO2 capture and graphene nanoribbons for photo- and electrocatalytic applications.
Qualifications: PhD/Doctorate Degree in Chemistry, with strong experience in synthesis of energy-related materials and MOFs.
To apply, please submit your cover letter, CV, and contact information for three references via the UIC Jobs Board at: https://jobs.uic.edu/job-board/job-details?jobID=155142
