We have 4 available positions in the National Science Centre’s OPUS13 project entitled “Development of new pathways for CO2 utilization: From a common waste to a valuable chemical feedstock”. We are looking for:
– 1 Master student
– 2 PhD students
– 1 postdoc
Carbon dioxide is the most abundant and important C-1 building block in Nature. Simultaneously, the carbon dioxide is one of the most spreading greenhouse gas in the atmosphere. Therefore, in regard to the fight with global warming the decrease of its concentration is now a very important issue. One of the most challenging strategy for decreasing CO2 amount is its direct transformation into useful and value-added products. This strategy changes the role of CO2 from an unwonted waste to a commonly available chemical feedstock and, as such, it is a fast developing area of research with potentially far-reaching technological applications. The project aims at more advanced understanding of the CO2 activation and fixation processes and development of new pathways for rational carbon dioxide transformation into valuable products and materials of desired functionality.
Project leader: Professor Janusz Lewiński
Project timespan: January 2018 – January 2021
The deadline for document submission is 25 September 2018.
