How will you contribute? Water splitting into molecular hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O2) provides a promising alternative to the worldwide energy and environmental challenges.

The postdoctoral researcher will work in the framework of a large research project (ERC Consolidator grant) focusing on the chemical engineering of metalloporphyrin-based polymers for heterogeneous catalysis applications.

The project, that involves an international and interdisciplinary team, includes the design and synthesis of novel catalyst materials, their characterization and evaluation for the production of hydrogen from water splitting.

The ERC-funded postdoctoral researcher will conduct research in the engineering of donor acceptor conjugated microporous polymer that act as heterogeneous catalysts for the hydrogen (HER) and oxygen evolution reactions (OER).

Supported by computational quantum mechanical modelling, the postdoctoral researcher will propose a rational design of the organic photocatalysts and select the functional groups that are of great importance for high photocatalytic activities.

The postdoctoral researcher will work closely with other researchers involved in the project to build up a deep understanding of the synthesised materials and measure the performance of these materials.

The postdoctoral researcher, integrated to a very engaged and ambitious research team, is expected to develop these research activities to the highest scientific level.

You d like to contribute as a researcher? Join our Materials Research and Technology department

Through its research into advanced materials and processes, the Materials Research and Technology (MRT) department, with its 200 researchers and engineers, contributes to the emergence of enabling technologies that underpin the innovation processes of local and international industry.

MRT’s activities hinge on four thematic pillars : nanomaterials and nanotechnology, scientific instrumentation and process technology, structural composites, and functional polymers.

The department also includes four high-tech platforms, focusing on composites, prototyping, characterization and testing.

These platforms serve both LIST research staff, and other stakeholders in Luxembourg.
