Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Calgary

Department of Chemistry, University of Calgary

Postdoctoral positions are available immediately in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Calgary under the supervision of Profs. Curtis P. Berlinguette and Simon Trudel. The research will be focused on the design and evaluation of heterogeneous metal-oxide materials in the context of water splitting catalysis. Applicants should hold a Ph. D. degree in inorganic, materials, or physical chemistry, and be familiar with physical characterization techniques (IR, UV-vis, Raman, ellipsometry, powder XRD, electron microscopy, EXAFS, XPS, UPS, etc.), and/or electrochemistry methods. The project will involve extensive electrochemical analysis, thus candidates with expertise in electrochemistry are preferred. Successful candidates will be expected to start their appointment by May 2012, but an earlier start is preferred. The review of the applications will commence Jan 9, 2012, and will continue until the positions are filled. Applicants are encouraged to submit their curriculum vitae and names of at least two referees electronically to Curtis Berlinguette ( and Simon Trudel (, or to contact either of them directly should they have further questions.

Post Doctoral Fellow- Vive Nano and University of Western Ontario

Vive Nano, a young, innovative and rapidly-growing company in green-chemistry technology, has partnered with Prof. J Zhu at the University of Western Ontario, Particle
Technology Research Centre, to develop innovative products for crop protection. Vive Nano and Dr Zhu are looking for a chemist with experience in analysis and
processing to assist in analytical method development, quality control and process optimization. The position will be at UWO in London, but will need to spend a
significant (likely more than half) of the time at Vive Nano’s facilities in Toronto.
Tasks will include:

  • Analysis of the samples by various methods (GC, titration, HPLC, light scattering, UV-Vis, etc.) and development of new methods as necessary process optimization experiments
  • Correlation of analytical results and process PLC/Data
  • Reporting of conclusions and recommendations.


  • Chemist or Chemical Engineer
  • Experience in organic and/or polymer chemistry and with strong analytical chemistry skills
  • Hands-on experience in chemical, food or pharmaceutical environments, particularly in analysis and/or production
  • Excellent communication and data analysis skills
  • Working knowledge of standard software tools
  • Very important, the candidate must be self-directed and able to work well in a
  • team environment

Interested candidates should submit their Word format resume to people at vivenano dot com and/or prf at uwo dotca with the subject line heading Post Doctoral Fellow.
Please provide 3 names to whom we can contact for references.

UWO and Vive Nano wish to thank all prospective applicants.
Only those candidates selected for an interview will be contacted
