Postdoc Position : The laboratory for functional inorganic materials (LFIM) is looking to hire a new postdoc to be focused on designing building blocks for metal-organic frameworks and the subsequent design of novel adsorbents for the extraction of contaminants from water to start in early 2022.
Applicant: The optimal candidate would have a degree in Chemistry and have a particularly strong working knowledge of standard organic synthesis and various characterization techniques (including NMR, IR, XRD, TGA, MS etc). It is considered a plus if the candidate has experience with porous adsorbents, separations, and hydrothermal and/or solvothermal synthesis. However, all interested candidates are encouraged to apply.  The candidate must be fluent in English and be motivated to work in a highly competitive and diverse environment. 

Location: The position is located on the chemistry campus of EPFL-ISIC-Valais in Sion, Switzerland.
