ICMAB-CSIC is looking for postdoctoral researchers wanting to apply to Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Postdoctoral Fellowships (PF) in 2022. ICMAB-CSIC has full experience in MSCA actions. It puts a big effort in MSCA-PF calls, having achieved high success rate in the last years.

Successful candidates will work under the supervision of Prof. David Amabilino whose group work on light-responsive materials. This project will continue our work on the synthesis of new chiral chromophores for optoelectronic devices, especially organic solar cells. The research will involve the stereoselective synthesis of the molecules, in our state of the art laboratories with all characterization tools available, the study of the assembly and organisation of the molecules by chiroptical spectroscopy in the solution and solid states, and the effects of the stereochemistry on the phase behaviour they exhibit in the presence of complementary molecules for formation of bulk heterojunction devices, that will be made in collaboration with groups expert in this area. Candidates will receive scientific and transversal skills training in a highly diverse environment.

How to apply

Interested candidates, please send your CV and a brief outline ofthe proposed research project (1 page maximum) to Prof. David Amabilino ( before July 15th 2022.

Description of MSCA Post-doctoral fellowships

The objective of PFs is to support researchers’ careers and foster excellence in research. The Postdoctoral Fellowships action targets researchers holding a PhD who wish to carry out their research activities abroad, acquire new skills and develop their careers. PFs help researchers gain experience in other countries, disciplines and non-academic sectors.

The fellowship typically covers the researcher's salary (living and mobility allowance) for two years, research, training and networking activities costs and overheads for the host institution.

Eligibility rules

The mobility rule of MSCA PF requires that the researcher (candidate) has not resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organization (Spain, for ICMAB-CSIC) for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the call deadline (expected to be September 14th 2022 for call 2022). Moreover, only candidates with research experience up to 8 years postdoc from the date the PhD degree was granted are eligible(with possible exceptions).
