The Institute of Chemistry of São Carlos (IQSC) of the University of São Paulo (USP) has a postdoctoral fellowship with a scholarship linked to the Thematic Project - FAPESP "Study and application of electrochemical technology for the analysis and degradation of endocrine : materials, sensors, processes and scientific dissemination "coordinated by Professor Marcos Lanza.

The project aims at the production of new materials with electrocatalytic activity and their application in electrochemical analysis sensors and in advanced effluent treatment processes. In addition to disseminating the scientific knowledge produced for peers through scientific articles, the dissemination of the results obtained will also occur through scientific dissemination.

Through the production of didactic material to improve physicochemistry teaching in Basic Education and the realization of interactive exhibitions open to students and the general population, it is hoped to arouse interest in science, especially among school-age youth. 


The candidate must work in the development of research on scientific dissemination and the teaching of physicochemistry in Basic Education (students aged between 10 and 18 years). In this sense, the fellow is expected to be able to delineate research questions and design data collection strategies that enable the development of scientific dissemination and chemical education activities, with publication of results in national and international journals in the area of ​​Chemical Education. 

Must have immediate availability to reside in São Carlos / SP and have completed the doctorate for less than 7 years. 

The vacancy is open to Brazilians and foreigners. The selected candidate will receive FAPESP Post-Doctoral Fellowship in the amount of R $ 7,373.10 per month and Technical Reserve equivalent to 15% of the annual value of the scholarship to meet unforeseen expenses directly related to the research activity.  The duration of the scholarship is 24 months.
