    Catalytic Processes for Clean Energy

Jerzy Haber Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry Polish Academy of Sciences (ICSC PAS) is keen to host Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action fellows to work in its research teams and welcomes expressions of interest from excellent post-doctoral researchers to apply for the Individual Fellowship Scheme.


Jerzy Haber Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry Polish Academy of Sciences

The Jerzy Haber Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences (ICSC PAS) is the only scientific institution in Poland and one of very few in the world devoted entirely to research in catalysis and the chemistry of interfaces. The Institute pursues interdisciplinary studies of phenomena occurring at gas-solid, gas-liquid and liquid-solid interfaces, combining significant aspects of chemistry, physics, biochemistry, medicine, chemical technology, biotechnology, material engineering and heritage science. The fundamental theoretical and experimental studies carried out in the Institute are combined with applied research so that the results obtained can be used directly to improve materials, methods or technological processes. The list of facilities available in Institute is provided on our website.


 Catalytic Processes for Clean Energy Research Group

Catalytic Processes for Clean Energy is research group established under The Jerzy Haber Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences (ICSC PAS).

The research work conducted in the research group involves a combination of materials chemistry and electrochemistry:

a) synthesis of porous carbon materials (including carbon materials doped with heteroatoms, e.g. nitrogen); synthesis of (noble, non-noble) metal nanoparticles; synthesis of composites containing metal nanoparticles deposited (in-situ, ex-situ) on various supports; synthesis of electrode materials/electrocatalysts for ORR at RT

b) materials characterization by means of X-ray diffraction (XRD), elemental analysis, scanning and transmission microscopy (SEM and TEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis, nitrogen sorption

c) characterization of electrochemical properties of electrode materials/electrocatalysts by means of various electrochemical methods/techniques, in particular, cyclic voltammetry, using RDE/RRDE techniques in aqueous electrolyte solutions.


Postdoctoral position, Novel Electrocatalysts

Position of post-doc in the research group “Catalytic Process for Clean Energy” is focused on development and investigation of novel electrocatalysts for oxygen reduction reaction (ORR). The role will involve a combination of materials chemistry and electrochemistry.


Main Requirements for Candidate:

1. He/she should have a PhD degree in chemistry or in a closely related subject.

2. He/she should have good knowledge of written and spoken English.


Interested applicants are invited to send a cover letter and CV (including record of journal publications and record of participation in research projects) to ncpacula@cyf-kr.edu.pl with “MSCA-IF Catalytic Processes + <candidate’s name>” in the email subject by 31st August 2020.


The responsibility for the hosting offers published on this website, including the hosting description, lies entirely with the publishing institutions. The application is handled uniquely by the employer, who is also fully responsible for the recruitment and selection processes.
