Postdoctoral Research Position (Québec City, Canada): Surface Science/Heterogeneous Catalysis

A postdoctoral position is open in the group of Peter McBreen in the Department of Chemistry, Université Laval, Québec City, Canada. The objective of the project is to understand how to fine tune olefin metathesis and enantioselective reactions on metal, metal carbide and nanoparticle surfaces. The laboratory is equipped for VT-STM, XPS,
HREELS and RAIRS measurements. Previous hands-on experience with surface spectroscopy and particularly UHV-STM is essential. The starting date for the position is flexible but ideally it should be before October 2009. The initial appointment is for one year, renewable for one or two years.

For further information, please contact . Interested candidates should send their CV, publication record and a list of three people who can provide
letters of reference.

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
