in the frame of SONATA Bis 5 project entitled “Nanoengineering of thin layers of semiconductor photocatalysts in a microreactor environment for lignin-based model compounds valorization” (project nr 2015/18/E/ST5/00306) funded by the National Science Centre in Poland.
Job title: MSc student (First Stage Researcher – R1)
Type of contract: scholarship for 6 months, 1500,00 PLN (tax free) per month for 50% work, i.e. approx. 2.5 days a week.
Estimated job starting date: 01 of October 2018
Project leader: dr hab. inż. Juan Carlos Colmenares, prof. ndzw. IChF-PAN
Nr of positions available: 1
Main Research Field: physical-chemistry
Activities, in which the applicant will be involved are: Design, synthesis and characterization of novel multicomponent nanophotocatalytic thin layers supported on the internal walls of a fluidic microreactor, the study of their activity in the selective photo-oxidation of lignin-based model molecules and the correlation of their performances with the composition, surface morphology and distribution of the active sites.
Development benefits: work in a young and dynamic team; well-equipped laboratories of the Institute of Physical Chemistry and research centers in Spain and Netherlands; large autonomy during the execution of tasks; the possibility of publishing articles in worldwide prestigious journals and participation in international conferences.
