Post-Doctoral Research Associate - Photosynthetic Materials for Solar Fuel Generation (Cambridge, UK)

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral research associate to work on solar fuel research in the Reisner group in the Department of Chemistry ( The project aims to develop photosynthetic materials and devices through the hybridization of molecular catalysts (enzymes and molecular) with semiconductor materials. The project focuses on developing novel approaches for solar water splitting.

The successful candidate will have a PhD in a relevant discipline and have experience in materials chemistry, electrochemistry and/or photocatalysis. The candidate should be ready to think outside of her/his formal field of training to fit in a cross-disciplinary, creative and dynamic research environment. A strong record of research productivity, as reflected in a substantial publication record in journals of high impact as well as excellent communication, writing and management skills will be required.

The post is available from 1st September 2012.  Applications should include a CV, publications list, contact details for three professional referees, and a completed form CHRIS/6 Parts I and III (downloadable by clicking on the APPLY ONLINE button below), and should be sent to Dr Erwin Reisner, Department of Chemistry, Lensfield Road, Cambridge CB2 1EW  (email:

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at

Dr. András Paszternák, founder of Nanopaprika
