Department of Chemistry, University of Calgary
Postdoctoral positions are available immediately in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Calgary under the supervision of Profs. Curtis P. Berlinguette and Simon Trudel. The research will be focused on the design and evaluation of heterogeneous metal-oxide materials in the context of water splitting catalysis. Applicants should hold a Ph. D. degree in inorganic, materials, or physical chemistry, and be familiar with physical characterization techniques (IR, UV-vis, Raman, ellipsometry, powder XRD, electron microscopy, EXAFS, XPS, UPS, etc.), and/or electrochemistry methods. The project will involve extensive electrochemical analysis, thus candidates with expertise in electrochemistry are preferred. Successful candidates will be expected to start their appointment by May 2012, but an earlier start is preferred. The review of the applications will commence Jan 9, 2012, and will continue until the positions are filled. Applicants are encouraged to submit their curriculum vitae and names of at least two referees electronically to Curtis Berlinguette (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Simon Trudel (email@example.com), or to contact either of them directly should they have further questions.
