Two PhD positions are open in the field of electrochemical conversion of carbon dioxide.
The available positions are fully funded and the students will be working at the Inorganic Materials and Catalysis group at Eindhoven University of Technology led by prof.dr.ir. Emiel Hensen. The work will involve development and optimization of catalysts and reaction conditions towards selected products seeking for improved selectivity and high faradaic efficiencies. The research of our catalysis group Inorganic Materials Chemistry focuses on novel inorganic catalyst materials with applications in sustainable chemical processes for production of fuels and chemicals. Our approach is to develop a science base for design of catalysts based on synthesis of model systems, advanced in-situ spectroscopic and microscopic characterization, computational modelling of reaction mechanism at different length and time scales and experimental kinetic studies. We address topics in the field of natural gas and syngas conversion, valorization of biomass, the use of zeolites and other porous materials in catalysis and catalysis for Solar Fuels.
