We would like to invite you to work with our catalyst and materials research laboratory! We are a team of experienced scientists who offer a wide range of research related to chemistry, catalysis and materials engineering.

For companies looking for technological solutions, we offer the possibility to perform testing and characterisation of materials and catalysts. Our research services help discover new technological solutions and bring them to market.

We are also interested in working with students and PhD students who want to gain experience in the laboratory. We offer internships and research placements to develop practical skills and deepen scientific knowledge. If you are looking for a research collaboration partner or want to gain practical experience in the lab, contact us today!

Cooperation with industry

We are pleased to announce that our laboratory offers research services and carries out external orders for industry.

Our experience and specialisation allows us to carry out research in the field of:

  • Spectroscopic characterisation of materials;
  • Measurements of kinetic activity and kinetics of catalysts;
  • Synthesis of inorganic materials;
  • Functionalization of materials;
  • Molecular weight measurements of water-soluble polymers and THF;
  • Characterisation of processes and materials under realistic conditions;
  • Ageing of materials under elevated temperature and humidity conditions;
  • Hyperspectral imaging in the UV-VIS range;
  • Photographic documentation of objects;
  • Non-destructive, non-contact measurements of composition and properties;
  • And many more.

Working with us guarantees you access to advanced research technologies and the knowledge of our team of specialists. We carry out projects at the highest quality level, meeting deadlines and in accordance with individual customer needs. Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss the details and conditions of cooperation.

Academic cooperation

We are pleased to welcome ambitious and committed researchers and graduate students with PhDs, MSc and undergraduate degrees to our laboratory. We are currently leading a number of projects in the design of nanomaterials and the development of methods for their characterisation by in situ and operando methods, both in the fields of heterogeneous catalysis and conservation chemistry.

Joining our group of researchers is an excellent opportunity to advance your research career and gain valuable experience working on cutting-edge research projects. We offer extensive access to advanced laboratory technologies and the opportunity to work with an experienced team of scientists.

If you are interested in working in our laboratory and would like to take on the challenge of designing nanomaterials and characterising their properties, we warmly invite you to send us your CV and a covering letter. We assure you that joining our group of scientists is not only an opportunity to acquire new skills, but also a friendly atmosphere and good work organisation.

For someone interested in working with us as a student, we expect candidates to have the following requirements:
- A good understanding of the chemical sciences, with an emphasis on inorganic chemistry and catalysis.
- Good knowledge of laboratory methods, including the ability to use laboratory facilities and equipment safely.
- Ability to work in a team and adapt to the multidisciplinary nature of research projects.
- Ability to think analytically and solve problems.
- For graduate and undergraduate students, a good academic record is required.
Government and university PhD scholarships are available each year for both domestic and international students.

The Department of Chemistry at the Jagiellonian University advertises recruitment for the PhD School on its own website.

- Domestic students - students should have a good academic record (including experience of research and its documentation) preference given to outstanding performers. The student's research and academic background may be in one or more of the biochemical sciences, chemistry, nanotechnology and related life sciences.

- International students - in the case of international students, it is expected that they will have obtained Master's degrees with a very good academic and research background in the relevant field. Applicants should have an overall IELTS score of 7 or above, with a minimum band score of 6.5. They will also be expected to have at least two research articles in a journal with a high impact factor.
