Work Context

The Institute of Chemistry and Processes for Energy, Environment and Health (ICPEES), is a joint research unit under the supervision of the CNRS and the University of Strasbourg (UMR7515). Its staff includes about fifty permanents and more than 80 non-permanent among doctoral students, post-docs and other fixed-term contracts. The institute has a world-renowned know-how in the field of materials development and their application to various catalytic processes including industrially relevant transformations (in collaboration with various companies).
The researcher will be part of the team of Nanomaterials, Catalysis and Interfaces under the supervision of Dr. Cuong PHAM-HUU, Director of research CNRS. He / she will also participate in the scientific discussions for planning his/her research activity in the team and optimize the results of his/her activity.
