Postdoctoral Position in Supramolecular Materials, University of Barcelona, Spain

Postdoc in Spain
Postdoctoral Position in Supramolecular Materials: A highly motivated and skilled postdoctoral researcher is sought for a project focused on the chemically fueled self-assembly of functional supramolecular materials. This research aims to synthesize novel multi-component porous materials with controllable hierarchical self-assembly through continuous chemical fuel supply under diffusion-controlled conditions.
