Qualification Details

Candidates should have a PhD degree or equivalent in disciplines like chemistry, catalysis, or chemical engineering. The candidate should have experience with catalyst synthesis and fixed-bed, gas-phase experiments. Experience with materials characterization as well as instrumental analytical methods and fixed-bed reactor design is an advantage.


In the assessment of the candidates consideration will be given to

  • scientific production and research potential at international level
  • innovative skills and the ability to generate new ideas
  • the ability to communicate at all levels such as the provision of scientific advice to public sector authorities
  • an all-round experience basis, preferably including international experience
  • the ability to contribute to development of internal and external cooperation

Responsibilities/Job Description

The major responsibility of the postdoc is to design and carry out experimental studies with catalysts in the conversion of oxygenates to hydrocarbon fuels in continuous, gas-phase. The work will comprise both synthesis, characterization and catalyst testing. The postdoc is supposed to interact closely with other colleagues working in the aviation fuel project and will also have the possibility to work with other group members on other studies for catalytic conversion of renewables.
