    Qualifications

    The candidate shall have a PhD degree or equivalent in chemistry, chemical engineering, material science, physical chemistry, nanotechnology, metallurgy or similar field.

    Preference

    It is preferred if candidates have experience and contributions within one or more of the following areas:

    • Proton exchange membrane fuel cell and electrolyzer catalyst based on either precious or non-precious element syntheses/characterization
    • Catalytic body especially alloy preparation, characterization or structure development for electrochemical conversion, emission control or petroleum chemistry
    • Battery and/or supercapacitor electrode materials, high surface area carbon nanomaterials or ceramics (synthesis, electrochemistry, adsorption studies, etc.)
    • Electrochemical CO2, N2 reduction
    • Gas diffusion electrode (GDE) and membrane electrode assembly (MEA) preparation, characterization and postmortem analysis
    • Industrial catalysis or heterogeneous catalysis
    • Wet (precious) metal chemistry
    • Record of article reviews, contribution in book chapters or intellectual properties

    Responsibilities/ Job Description

    A successful candidate will get a unique chance to participate in research and collaboration with the scientific as well as commercial communities in the field of electrocatalyst metal nanoparticle production and recycling and contribute to research within applied science.

    The main tasks include the following activities:

    • Metal nanoparticle catalyst or electrode comprehensive benchmarking and protocol selection or development
    • Catalyst reaction mechanism interpretation
    • New catalyst property development and synthesis condition optimization
    • Comprehensive catalyst and solution characterization and monitoring
    • Reaction, separation and purification process optimization to provide recommendations for upscaling

    How to Apply?

    • Your application including the required attachments must be uploaded through the link “Apply Online”.
    • Attached files must be in Adobe pdf format. All pdf-files must be unlocked and allow binding and may not be password protected.
