Postdoctoral Researcher at Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia

The Institute of Chemical research of Catalonia (ICIQ) is seeking a POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHER.

The position is affiliated with the group of Prof. Mónica H. Pérez-Temprano, who focuses on harnessing the power of reaction mechanisms for driving innovative reaction design and development. The overarching research goals encompass streamlining the development of more sustainable methodologies and expanding the frontiers of transition metal catalysis and organic synthesis. Specifically, the successful candidate will enhance the chemical space and applicability of first-row transition metal catalyzed transformations by unlocking novel reactivities and mechanistic possibilities that remain elusive to date. 


  • Development of new reactivity based on first-row transition metals
  • Synthesis and characterization and organometallic complexes and organic molecules
  • Conducting mechanistic studies using a broad array of analytic techniques
  • Writing lab reports and drafting manuscripts for scientific articles
  • Mentoring of PhD students within the group
  • Maintenance of laboratory equipment 
  • Presenting research results at national and international conferences 


We are seeking an outstanding, highly motivated and creative team player who possesses:

  • PhD in Organic or Organometallic chemistry or related field
  • Expertise in transition metal catalysis, C–H functionalization reactions and/or mechanistic investigations
  • Proficiency in air-sensitive techniques and general analytical tools 
  • Excellent written and spoken English skills
  • Strong communication and management abilities, coupled with reliability in meeting commitments and deadlines
