Postdoctoral Researcher position at The 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. MĂłnica H. PĂ©rez-Temprano, who works on the development of innovative and more sustainable first-row transition metal-catalyzed transformations by using mechanisms as a powerful reaction design tool. Specifically, the successful candidate will be involved in the design and development of novel first-row transition metal redox catalysis. 

The position will include the following tasks: 

  • Synthesis and characterization and organometallic complexes and organic molecules
  • Mechanistic studies applying a broad array of analytic techniques
  • Writing lab reports and drafting manuscripts for scientific articles
  • Mentoring of PhD students in the group
  • Maintenance of the laboratory equipment 
  • Attending national and international conferences to present the most relevant research results

We are looking for an outstanding chemist with a strong synthetic and organometallic background and experience in mechanistic investigations and/or kinetic studies. Expertise in air-sensitive techniques and general analytical tools is also fundamental. The ideal candidate is expected to be highly motivated, creative, capable of working autonomously, responsible and team player. Excellent communication and management skills, along with reliability in meeting commitments and deadlines are also requested. 

We offer a dynamic and resource-rich environment with the state-of-the-art scientific instrumentation where the postdoctoral fellow will perform cutting-edge research and participate in scientific, technical, and soft skill training activities to develop key competences and boost the career development. 

ICIQ is one of the world’s internationally recognized leading institutions in the field of chemistry committed to solving major social and economic challenges by conducting top quality research in two main areas: Renewable Energy and Catalysis. The institute also aims at training the future generation of scientists by offering high-quality educational programs to master, PhD students and postdoctoral researchers (full details on
