PhD position: Greenhouse gas sequestration using molecular beams at the Autonomous University of Madrid, Madrid, Spain

The project is a joint effort of the Surface Science group at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and the Nanophysics Lab-Green Chemistry group at the Centro de Física de Materiales (CSIC/UPV-EHU). 

The main goal is to set up a new experimental system, which combines state-of-the-art molecular beams with photoemission (XPS). The XPS equipment is currently being coupled to the existing high-resolution molecular beam system at the UAM surface science laboratory. This unique system will allow our groups the study of relevant catalytic reactions for the energy transition, like the activation of greenhouse gases for clean energy fuels, with unprecedented levels of detail.

We search highly motivated candidates with a Master of Science degree in physics or physical chemistry with interest for learning, hands for experimental work, proficiency in English and social skills. We offer state‐of‐the‐art scientific opportunities, up to four years of contract with competitive salary and health insurance. The position is funded through an open InPhinit Fellowship call, please see:

Deadline for applications: 25 January 2023

Interested candidates should contact Prof. Daniel Farias (daniel.farias@uam.es)
