OPEN CALL for 10 PhD positions in the field of catalysis

H2020 / Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action / European Innovative Training Network/ European Joint Doctorate entitled “Paramagnetic Species in Catalysis Research. A Unified Approach Towards Heterogeneous, Homogeneous and Enzyme Catalysis” (PARACAT), Grant number 813209.

The deadline for application is 30/01/2019 at 1800 hrs (GMT).

Are you keen to conduct fundamental research in catalysis at the interface between chemistry, biology and physics?

The PARACAT project aims to educate and train a group of young researchers on implementing advanced spectroscopic methods (Electron Paramagnetic Resonance) for cutting edge research in the field of catalysis. For the first time, this project will comprehensively explore the role of open-shell species in catalysis and at the interface between chemistry, physics and biology. The programme places strong emphasis on ethical considerations and social reflections to research by combining the scientific expertise of (bio)chemists, (bio)physicists and industrial partners with the input of an ethicist, to support a new generation of scientists capable of tackling the many societal responsibilities as experts in their field. PARACAT is composed of a consortium of 5 academic beneficiaries complimented by 1 research institute, 3 industrial organizations and 2 academic institutions as partners, collaborating in the research and training activities to offer 10 Early-Stage-Researchers (ESR; 36 month PhD positions) the possibility of being awarded with double doctoral degrees from two separate Universities in two different European countries.
