Utrecht University's Faculty Science is looking for two Assistant Professors ARC CBBC. Are you interested? Then please read the full profile and apply.
The search for new and environmental friendly routes towards chemicals, materials and fuels is dependent on the use of novel catalysts, reactors and reaction concepts. Within the field of heterogeneous catalysis, we are looking for researchers, which are willing to develop an attractive and ambitious research program along the following research lines.
For the research line ‘Smarter and more sustainable chemical processes’ Advanced Research Center – Chemical Building Blocks Consortium (ARC CBBC) is seeking a highly qualified and motivated experimental scientist, who is capable to develop new catalytic routes and related materials to activate small molecules, such as CO2, N2 and CH4. The overall aim is to synthesize, characterize and test these novel solid catalysts, for gas- and liquid-phase heterogeneous catalytic routes, as well as for electro- and photo-electrocatalytic routes for these small molecules. A strong emphasis is here thus placed on the materials synthesis and catalytic testing aspects of heterogeneous catalysis.
For the research line ‘Experimental methods for rational catalyst and material design’ ARC CBBC is seeking a highly qualified and committed experimental scientist, who wishes to develop and use new characterization tools to investigate the reaction and deactivation mechanisms of heterogeneous catalytic processes. The research trend worldwide is towards space- and time-resolved in-situ spectroscopy under true reaction conditions, including the development of nano-spectroscopy, tomography, combining techniques as well as single molecule and single atom detection. A strong emphasis is here thus placed on the materials characterization aspects of heterogeneous catalysis.
We are especially looking for an enthusiastic and cooperative team player with excellent communication and networking skills, who is focused on achieving multidisciplinary research targets. A minimum experience of two to three years as a Postdoctoral Researcher is highly recommended.
As a successful candidate you should:
You are expected to have an excellent level of English, both written and oral. At the point of a tenure decision, Dutch language skills should be at the level of practical communication.
The Faculty of Science has adopted an active policy to increase the number of female scientists across all disciplines. Therefore, female candidates are especially encouraged to apply.
The candidate is offered a Tenure-Track Position (1.0 FTE), which will be subject to a mid-term evaluation after approximately three years and an end-term evaluation. When evaluations are positive the position becomes permanent after five years. The appointment is at the level of assistant professor (“universitair docent”). The gross salary - depending on previous qualifications and experience - ranges between €3,475 and €5,405 (scale 11/12 according to the Collective Labour Agreement Dutch Universities) gross per month for a full-time employment. Salaries are supplemented with a holiday bonus of 8 % and a year-end bonus of 8.3 % per year. We offer a pension scheme, (partly paid) parental leave, collective insurance schemes and flexible employment conditions (multiple choice model).
