Postdoctoral research fellows under the ‘CAS President’s International Fellowship Initiative (PIFI)

We are seeking highly motivated postdoctoral fellows to join the group  at Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Wuhan, China. The candidates are encouraged to apply for fellowship under the ‘CAS President’s International Fellowship Initiative (PIFI)’.


Our laboratory focuses on the understanding the structure-activity relationship of catalysts as to the development of new heterogeneous catalysts for the production of energy and chemicals. We develop and apply the state-of-art solid state NMR in combination with other spectroscopic techniques to study the catalyst structures and catalytic reaction mechanism at the atomic level. Current projects focusing on the following areas: i) understanding the mechanisms of heterogeneous catalytic reactions; ii) active site design on supported catalysts (zeolites and metal oxides); iii) development of in situ spectroscopic techniques for structure and reaction characterization.

Candidates should hold a recent PhD degree, have strong research background and be extremely hardworking and motivated to pursue top-notch scientific investigation. Background in experimental solid-state NMR would be an advantage, but not required. Experience in characterization of solid catalysts and mechanistic study of catalytic reactions with spectroscopic techniques is a strong plus.

CAS offers an annual salary to postdoctoral researchers to cover living expenses and health insurance in China. Each selected awardee will receive a pre-tax stipend of¥250,000 per year. In addition, the fellowship provides an economy-class round-trip international travel.

Inquiry for more information and applications (including CV, short statement of motivation and contact details of two references) should be sent to:  

The deadline is Sep 1, 2017.

I am  Myat from Myanmar?

When can I know the result for your  CAS application?

After applying in Septemeber, how long will it take?

For 6 months or one  year or  3 months/

Can I  bring my husband or family?

Will you give me more information about it?

I am so  interesting in your post doctorate fellowship.

What abou t two reference letters /

 Do you  mean recommendation letter for me?

Please reply to me.

After  experiment, will we  write a paper internationally to publish?

Please keep in touch with me.

Hello, i am qualified to thid position, please guide how to apply for it

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
