We are pleased that Austria has placed a focus of its basic research on materials for energy storage and conversion: Our Cluster of Excellence MECS was supported in the first funding period with Dominik and Alexey serving as PIs (out of 18 in the consortium). MECS will serve as a transformative center, not only contributing to the development of new materials that facilitate the transition to renewable energy sources, but also training a new generation of graduate students and postdocs ready to take on the challenges of materials chemistry research in this field.

If you are interested in master's, PhD, and postdoctoral projects in metal-organic frameworks, single-site catalysis, photocatalysis, molecular clusters, and solar fuels – follow our updates and job postings here or on Twitter: @EderGroup, opens an external URL in a new window and @CherevanAlexey, opens an external URL in a new window
