CIC Energigune is an energy storage research centre with headquarters in the Basque Country, which aims to achieve and maintain levels of excellence in all of its research areas of focus and become an international benchmark in its field. The centre has the backing of public institutions and administrations, and of companies directly related to the energy sector.

What we offer

The "Thermal Energy Storage" area, at CIC Energigune, is seeking for a Postdoctoral researcher to apply for an Individual Fellowship (IF) within Marie Sk?odowska-Curie actions (MSCA) of the European Union in materials for thermal energy storage, either thermochemical materials or phase change materials or near-critical fluids. The candidate will join a multidisciplinary and collaborative team of young researchers.

The position is expected to start during the first half of 2019 and will have a duration of 2 years. The candidate will be hire only if the MSCA Individual Fellowship is granted. Successful candidates will be hosted at CIC Energigune during the fellowship.

What we need

Candidate profile:

  • PhD in chemical-physics, physic-chemistry or related fields
  • Research experience in either materials science or physics of fluids, more specifically in one or several of the following fields: thermochemical reactions, physics of phase transitions, near-critical fluids
  • Either experimental or theoretical or numerical skills in "design, synthesis and characterization of materials (including fluids)" are sought

Candidate mandatory requirements to apply to MSCA-IF:

The deadline to apply to the MSCA IF 2017 call is 12th September 2018. At that date, the applicant should fulfill the following requirements:

  • Shall be in possession of a doctoral degree or have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience.
