Brief Description.The Post-doctoral Research Fellow will conduct research in the field of an emerging class of hybrid porous materials called Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs). The project focuses on the exploration of new methods for the synthesis, deposition and application of oriented porous crystalline films. The successful candidate is expected to be capable of undertaking research on self-assembly, wet-chemistry, porous and crystalline materials, and related characterization methods.

The Team. The Post-doctoral Research Fellow will be part of a multidisciplinary team with access to range of deposition and characterization facilities. The candidate is expected to be an active member of a highly productive and stimulating environment that can count on an ERC project, a Marie Curie fellowship and other approved financial schemes. Collaborative skills and supervision capabilities are required to train master and PhD students. Communication skills are also required as the Post-doctoral Research Fellow will be part of a network of international collaborators.
