The PARACAT project (Paramagnetic Species in Catalysis Research. A Unified Approach Towards Heterogeneous, Homogeneous and Enzyme Catalysis) is an European Innovative Training Network / European Joint Doctorate.

It aims to educate and train a group of young researchers on implementing advanced spectroscopic methods (Electron Paramagnetic Resonance) for cutting edge research in the field of catalysis. The programme places strong emphasis on ethical considerations and social reflections to research by combining the scientific expertise of (bio)chemists, (bio)physicists and industrial partners with the input of an ethicist, to support a new generation of scientists capable of tackling the many societal responsibilities as experts in their field.

The successful PhD candidates will participate in the network’s advanced training activities and work placements in the laboratories of the PARACAT academic and industrial partners. Regular meetings and workshops within the EU-funded PARACAT Innovative Training Network will supplement the training and support provided at the host organizations. Practical scientific training will also be complemented by a coordinated programme of industry-relevant transferable skills that will prepare the ESRs for their future careers in the catalysis sector.

Fulltime employments as PhD students are offered for 36 months. The starting date of the contract would ideally be 1st March 2019.
