OFFER DESCRIPTION

A H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) early-stage researcher (ESR) position is available in the frame of the Innovative Training Network (ITN) INTERfaces where you will contribute to the development of novel biocatalyst systems which have active phases (organic/inorganic) anchored within application tuned porous ceramic based supports.

The ESR fellow position is funded for 21 months of which you will spend 50 % of time at recruiting institution and 50 % of the time as secondments in the ITN INTERfaces partnering institutions. The recruiting institution is a start-up dedicated to development of novel inorganic materials through additive manufacturing routes and is located in Zaragoza (Spain). Whereas, the secondments will take place at the academic institutions, Complutense University of Madrid (Spain) and Graz University of Technology (Austria) under supervision of Dr. Juan M Bolivar and Prof. Bernd Nidetzky, respectively. The date of recruitment is planned for January 2022- latest on February 2022.

In the frame of this fellowship, you will also be required to participate in the training events and workshops organized by the ITN-European Industrial Doctorates (EID) program. As a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) fellow, you are also expected to contribute your time in the dissemination of your work result through public engagement and other scientific platforms.

The ESR work will focus on:

(i) Development of suitable solid oxide material processing routes based on additive manufacturing for processing of different reactor configurations in flow.

(ii) Design of optimized ordered porous solid oxide structures to optimize mass flow in enzyme-immobilized catalyst systems.
