Postdoc: Optical methods for operando investigation in liquid reactors

Work Activities
The 3DPV group at NWO-Institute AMOLF is looking for a Postdoc candidate on operando characterisation inside a novel plasmonic-based photo-reactor. The project is part of the European ReaCtor consortium, which aims at designing and fabricating a novel micro reactor for sustainable flow chemistry. The consortium combines expertise in optical fiber design and fabrication (Institute of Quantum Optics at Leibniz University Hannover in Germany and Institute of Microelectronics and Photonics in Poland), laser structuring of glass materials (Light-Matter interactions and Extreme-Applications Photonics Lab at University of La Laguna on Tenerife in Spain) and flow chemistry (Noël research group at the University of Amsterdam).

This PD project contributes to the novel micro reactor by investigating the effect of plasmonic metal nanoparticles in enhancing photocatalysis inside optical fiber reactors. Different operando techniques will be pursued to monitor the chemical reactions in space and time, including scanning probe and spectroscopic (i.e. fluorescence and Raman). The goal is to probe the reaction kinetics from the single particle to the ensamble, and determine the ideal plasmonic particle density inside the reactor. In doing so, you will contribute to a novel type of light-driven chemical reactor, which will significantly reduce the energy consumption of catalytic processes in combination with an enormous scale-up potential.

This project will be in close collaboration with the other consortium partners, including consortium researchers at Dr. Albercht’s group at AMOLF and Prof. Noël’s group at the UvA, and you will be part of all consortium activities such as symposia, workshops, and mutual visits.

Qualifications
We are looking for a highly motivated PhD in physics, chemistry or similar, with good organizational and communication skills. Prior experience in photo-chemistry, operando spectroscopy, and/or plasmonics is preferred. Excellent verbal and written English skills are essential.

Work environment
AMOLF is a part of NWO-I and initiate and performs leading fundamental research on the physics of complex forms of matter, and to create new functional materials, in partnership with academia and industry. The institute is located at Amsterdam Science Park and currently employs about 140 researchers and 80 support employees. www.amolf.nl

Working conditions

  • The working atmosphere at the institute is largely determined by young, enthusiastic, mostly foreign employees. Communication is informal and runs through short lines of communication.
  • The position is intended as full-time (40 hours / week, 12 months / year) appointment in the service of the Netherlands Foundation of Scientific Research Institutes (NWO-I) for the duration of XX years
  • Salary is in scale 10 (CAO-OI) which starts at 4.065 Euro’s gross per month, and a range of employment benefits.
  • AMOLF assists any new foreign Postdoc with housing and visa applications and compensates their transport costs and furnishing expenses.

Postdoc: Investigating the electrical double layer

Work Activities
This is a postdoc position for 2+1 year to experimentally develop the in-situ and operando characterization of metal electrodes.

One of the largest challenges in achieving the energy transition is the conversion and storage of sustainable energy in energy-rich compounds such as hydrogen, hydrocarbons or alcohols produced from water and CO2. The key limiting factor in making these reactions more efficient is the lack of detailed understanding of how these reactions proceed on the nanoscale. In particular, detailed knowledge of the hydrogen-bond structure and molecular dynamics in the interfacial region near the electrode surface is missing. In this project we will combine advanced nonlinear optical femtosecond vibrational spectroscopy with scanning probe microscopy to investigate the water structure on the molecular scale near an operating electrode surface. We will also use these advanced techniques to investigate the dynamic distribution of ions and reactants in the region near the electrode surface. With these studies we will obtain novel insights in the structure of the electrical double layer near a biased electrode surface, which will be of great value in optimizing electrochemical reactions for the conversion and storage of sustainable energy.

This is a joined position between two research groups at AMOLF, the Ultrafast Spectroscopy and the 3DPhotovoltaics groups. You will be supervised by Prof. Bakker and Prof. Alarcon-Llado and will closely collaborate with the PhD students, technicians and other post-docs of both research groups. Both groups are embedded in the Sustainable Materials theme and ChemSpec center of expertise at AMOLF, which offer a highly stimulating and collaborative atmosphere

Qualifications
We are looking for an enthusiastic researcher with a PhD in experimental physics or physical chemistry.

We look for someone with experimental expirience in at least one of the following areas:

  • solid-water interface investigation at the molecular level
  • in-situ/operando atomic force microscopy
  • ultrafast spectroscopy

Good verbal and written communication skills in English are required

Hoofd Communicatie

Work Activities

Als hoofd communicatie zorg je samen met de medewerkers van je afdeling voor een doeltreffende communicatie voor twee wetenschappelijke instituten, AMOLF en ARCNL. Daarnaast adviseer je de directies van de twee instituten over de communicatiestrategie.

Je schrijft en redigeert teksten over wetenschappelijke resultaten voor verschillende doelgroepen (denk aan persberichten, nieuwsberichten voor de website, digitale nieuwsbrief). Je speelt een actieve rol in het organiseren van outreach activiteiten voor de twee instituten. Ook ondersteun je onderzoekers op het gebied van wetenschapscommunicatie zodat ze hun onderzoek effectief overbrengen aan een breed publiek.

Als hoofd van de afdeling geef je leiding aan een team van vier medewerkers. Je geeft richting aan de inhoud van het werk van twee communicatiemedewerkers en twee medewerkers informatiebeheer, die zich richten op het openbaar maken van wetenschappelijke publicaties en onderzoeksresultaten, en het beheer van de bibliotheek.

Voor het succesvol uitvoeren van deze taken is het belangrijk dat je goede contacten onderhoudt met je collega’s en externe stakeholders. Zo heb je regelmatig overleg met de communicatiemedewerkers van andere NWO instituten en het bureau van de NWO-I koepelorganisatie.

Qualifications
Je beschikt over HBO+/WO werk- en denkniveau. Je hebt een bèta opleiding en je hebt ervaring met het vak van communiceren, waardoor je de specialist bent om een complexe wetenschappelijke boodschap aantrekkelijk te presenteren aan verschillende doelgroepen.

Je houdt jezelf op de hoogte van communicatie- en sociaal maatschappelijke ontwikkelingen en vertaalt deze naar de uitvoering van het werk. Je beheerst de Nederlandse en Engelse taal uitstekend. Je beschikt over verantwoordelijkheidsgevoel en teamgeest. Leidinggevende ervaring is een pre, evenals affiniteit met informatiebeheer en de werkzaamheden van een wetenschappelijke bibliotheek.

Work environment
De afdeling communicatie ondersteunt twee wetenschappelijke onderzoeksinstituten op het Amsterdam Science Park: AMOLF en ARCNL. Bij deze organisaties werken in totaal circa 240 onderzoekers en 80 ondersteunende medewerkers.

AMOLF initieert en verricht toonaangevend fundamenteel onderzoek aan nieuwe, strategisch belangrijke complexe molecuul- en materiaalsystemen, in samenwerking met de Nederlandse universiteiten en industrie. Zie ook www.amolf.nl.

Het Advanced Research Center for Nanolithography (ARCNL) verricht fundamenteel onderzoek aan de fysica en technologie van nanolithografie, in het bijzonder voor toepassing in de halfgeleiderindustrie. ARCNL is een publiek-private samenwerking tussen ASML en meerdere kennisinstellingen. Zie ook www.arcnl.nl.

Working conditions
De werksfeer op de twee instituten wordt in hoge mate bepaald door jonge, enthousiaste, veelal buitenlandse medewerkers. De communicatie is informeel en verloopt via korte lijnen. De secundaire arbeidsvoorwaarden zijn uitstekend. Inschaling vindt, afhankelijk van relevante kennis en ervaring, plaats in schaal 10 of 11, afhankelijk van opleiding en ervaring; maximaal € 5.870,- bruto per maand (incl. vakantiegeld en eindejaarsuitkering) bij een fulltime dienstverband. De omvang van het dienstverband is bespreekbaar, binnen het kader 32 - 40 uur per week. Het betreft een dienstverband van twee jaar, met de intentie van een aansluitend vast dienstverband.
