4 Postdoctoral Positions Available

Four postdocs are sought to work in the Functional Materials Design, Discovery & Development (FMD3) research group, led by Professor Mohamed Eddaoudi at King Abdullah University of science and technology with research experience in the following areas:

  1. Porous materials synthesis and characterization like MOFs and COFs
  2. Organic synthesis: like MOFs and COFs ligand synthesis
  3. Energy storage application of porous materials
  4. Shaping and structuration of MOF: This would involve methodology development of shaping MOFs as beads, laminates and monolith and scaling up of developed methodology for a large scale shaping (kg)

The successful candidates should have a degree in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, material science, or related fields
