To achieve an efficient fuel production, it is not sufficient to locally control where gas bubbles are formed in stationary conditions. Hence, this project is aimed at gaining new fundamental insight in two challenging directions: (i) the processes and parameters associated with hydrogen bubble generation and transport under continuous flow conditions in novel and smart electrode designs, (ii) uncover new analytical concepts to measure dynamic physicochemical changes in the vicinity of bubble evolution sites. Both challenges have in common an unprecedented temporal and spatial resolution that is in high demand for designing and testing the solar fuel generators of the future.
We are looking for highly motivated and excellent researchers with a MSc degree in biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, nanotechnology, electrical engineering, applied physics, or related topic. You should be an enthusiastic person with well-developed communication skills, especially in written and spoken English. You should be capable of working independently as well as in a multidisciplinary team. Innovative and creative thinking are other requirements. Note that we are specifically looking for international students, although national students are also welcome to apply.
