Professor Agustín F. Pérez-Cadenas, from the Department of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Granada, welcomes postdoctoral candidates interested in applying for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (MSCA-IF) in 2020 at this University. Please note that applicants must comply with the Mobility Rule (more information: http://sl.ugr.es/0aNV).

Brief description of the institution:

The University of Granada (UGR), founded in 1531, is one of the largest and most important universities in Spain. The UGR has been awarded with the "Human Resources Excellence in Research (HRS4R)", which reflects the UGR’s commitment to continuously improve its human resource policies in line with the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. The UGR is also a leading institution in research, located in the top 5/10 of Spanish universities by a variety of ranking criteria, such as national R&D projects, fellowships awarded, publications, or international funding.

UGR is one of the few Spanish Universities listed in the Shanghai Top 500 ranking (http://sl.ugr.es/0aw0). The Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) places the UGR in 268th position in the world and as the 4th highest ranked University in Spain, reaffirming its position as an institution at the forefront of national and international research. From the perspective of specialist areas in the ARWU rankings, the UGR is outstanding in Documentation (ranked in the 36th in the world) or Food science technology (ranked 37th in the world), Mathematics and Computer Science (ranked among the top 76-100 in the world).

The UGR has 4 researchers at the top of the Highly Cited Researchers (HCR) list in the Computer Science area. With regard to broader subject fields, the UGR is ranked in 45th position in the universities worldwide in the discipline of Engineering. It is also well recognized for its web presence (http://sl.ugr.es/0a6i) taking 36th place in the top 200 Universities in Europe. Internationally, we bet decidedly by our participation in the calls of the Framework Programme of the European Union. For the duration of the last two Framework Programmes, the UGR has obtained a total of 66 projects, with total funding of 18.02 million euros, and for H2020, 80 projects with total funding around 20.6 million euros.

Brief description of the Centre/Research Group

The Adsorption and Catalysis Lab of the Faculty of Science is the main place where The Carbon Materials Research Group develops its projects, which are focused on the design of advanced materials based on carbon, and the study of their industrial and environmental applications, through adsorption and catalysis processes, being the electro-reduction of CO2 and O2, energy storage and photo-degradation of pollutants together with the development of new carbon-oxide metal composite materials currently the main (but not unique or limited) research lines. Actually the main co-workers are Prof. Francisco Carrasco-Marín (head of the Group) and Dr. Esther Bailón-García.

Project description

Development of high performance catalysts for the elimination of water pollutants by photo-catalysis or electro-Fenton processes, as well as for O2 and/or CO2 electro-reduction. The project is open to receive input from the candidates.

Research Area

Chemistry (CHE) and Environment and Geosciences (ENV)
