PhD position in Experimental Surface Science/Electrochemistry for: Discovering New Dual and Triple Atom Catalysts

Danmarks Tekniske Universitet (DTU)



Frist 23. april 2021

The position is funded by the DETECT project which is an ERC-COG grant from the European Research Council. The overarching aim

of this project is to

discover and establish new fundamental insight into the catalytic activity of duel and triple atom catalysts. Reactions of interest includes:

  • Hydrogen peroxide formation
  • CO2 reduction
  • Ammonia synthesis

The positions are at the SurfCat section which is also leading the

“The Villum Center for the Science of Sustainable Fuels and Chemicals” (V-SUSTAIN

),

at the Department of Physics at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). Here we enjoy a social, open and transparent scientific environment. The students will be able to take full advantage of the large number of personnel working in adjacent fields of investigation, from surface science on single crystals to the testing of high surface area catalysts in reactors.

The position

will be focused on electrochemical testing and characterization of the dual and triple atom catalysts produced by other group members using cluster sources. Specifically the work will involve:

  • The work will involve fundamental electrochemical investigation of the dual and triple atom catalysts using RDE setups but also a newly developed sniffer setup that combines mass spectrometry with electrochemistry.
  • Characterization of samples using e.g.
  • STM, TEM, XPS, ISS to probe dispersity and chemical state of the prepared dual and triple atoms catalysts. Synchrotron experiments, specifically EXAFS for dispersion and the number and nature of neighboring atoms, ideally in situ.

The work will rely heavily on a close collaboration between theory and experiment, where computational screening may identify the most promising catalysts. It will therefore be in collaboration with the theory group at DTU.

Qualifications
The successful candidates will have obtained excellent grades in his/her Bachelor and Masters degrees. He/she should also be well-motivated, hardworking and willing and able to work as part of a team. Candidates for the PhD position should have a Masters’ degree in Physics, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering or Materials Science by the time they commence the project.

Candidates who has shown interest/had experience in surface science, UHV and electrochemistry are preferred.

Approval and Enrolment
The scholarship for the PhD degree are subject to academic approval, and the candidates will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes of DTU, for example in Mathematics, Physics and Informatics. For information about the general requirements for enrolment and the general planning of the scholarship studies, please see the

DTU PhD Guide.

We offer
DTU is a leading technical university globally recognized for the excellence of its research, education, innovation and scientific advice. We offer a rewarding and challenging job in an international environment. We strive for academic excellence in an environment characterized by collegial respect and academic freedom tempered by responsibility.

Salary and appointment terms
The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The salary will be agreed upon with the relevant union.

The PhD position is for 3 years and the PhD thesis must be delivered during this period. The position is available from September 2021 - when applying please indicate a possible earliest starting date.
