CIC energiGUNE has been awarded by the European Commission with the ´HR Excellence in Research´which reflects our commitment to achieve fair and transparent recruitment and appraisal procedures,and certifies the existence of a stimulating and favorable work environment for researchers in our institution

CIC energiGUNE is looking for an experienced Post-doctoral Researcher to incorporate in the group of Solid state chemical reactions in the thermal energy storage (TES) area.

The research will be focused on the study of existing and novel chemical reactions and thermochemical cycles for thermal energy storage and fuel production (initial focus on hydrogen production). The final objective of the research is the development of advanced materials and systems that can be implemented in a real application (TES and fuel production in solar power plants and Industrial environment). 

The research work will include the identification and selection of promising materials and thermochemical cycles (two-steps and multi-steps), the synthesis of tailor made materials (e.g. mixed oxides), the study of the performances when subjected to repetitive cycles involving different reactions steps (reduction, hydration) and the full themophysical characterization. The systems studied will also be tested in specially designed laboratory scale prototypes (CIC energiGUNE facilities) to determine the reactivity at a more relevant scale (grams). The candidate will have the chance to work in a multidisciplinary environment composed by Chemists, Physicists and Engineers having the possibility to extend his/her knowledge approaching the research under different points of view. 

Job functions:

  • Development and identification of materials (e.g. tailor made metal oxides) and thermochemical cycles for thermal energy storage and fuel production.
  • In depth experimental characterization and behavioural understanding of such materials.
  • Contribution to the demonstration and piloting activities as well as to scaling up of developed systems.
  • Collaboration in project proposal writing to obtain funding from institutions and industrial sources.
  • Supervise graduate/master students.    

Qué ofrecemos

We are offering a 24+12 months position within interesting National and International projects in the field of thermal energy storage and important opportunities for professional development.

CIC energiGUNE offers a competitive basic salary augmented by important benefits such as special conditions for a private health insurance that compare favourably with the best global private and public institutions.

The "Fundación" will also help smooth the transition for you and your family, providing a welcome programme that offers accommodation and addresses of other aspects to help you integrate into the local environment.

Qué buscamos

  • PhD in Chemistry, Physics or related fields
  • Experience in materials synthesis, modification and characterization
  • Experience on heterogeneous gas-solid reactions will be valuable
  • A team player who can collaborate with other groups, technological centres, and industries.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills in English
