Bimetallic and Multimetallic Nanomaterials for Electrocatalysis

项目介绍

Department of Chemistry invites applicants for a PhD fellowship in the preparation and characterisation of bimetallic and multimetallic nanomaterials for electrocatalytic reactions. The project is part of the Center for High Entropy Alloy Catalysis.

Start date is March 1st 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The project
The applicant will be focused on the preparation and characterization of bimetallic and multimetallic nanostructures for renewable energy conversion reactions. The candidate will combine classical electrochemical methods with in situ infrared spectroscopy, online gas chromatography-mass spectrometry and in situ and operando synchrotron-based techniques. The nanomaterials will be prepared by different methods including electrodeposition in ionic liquids and tested for different electrocatalytic reactions such as the reduction of carbon dioxide to valuable fuels and chemicals. The candidate will work on the preparation and characterization of multimetallic compounds and high entropy alloys in close collaboration with the theoretical electrocatalysis group at the Department of Chemistry.

Who are we looking for?
We are looking for candidates within the field(s) of chemistry, chemical engineering, nanoscience and nanotechnology, materials science and engineering, physics or related areas. Applicants can have a background from electrochemistry, electrodeposition, catalysis and structural characterization techniques in nanoscience.

Our group and research- and what do we offer?
The group is a part of Department of Chemistry, Faculty of SCIENCE, University of Copenhagen. We are located in Copenhagen.

We offer creative and stimulating working conditions in dynamic and international research environment. Our research facilities include modern laboratories and equipment.

Principal supervisor isAssociate Professor Maria Escudero Escribano,Department of Chemistry, maria.escudero@chem.ku.dk.

The PhD programme
We offer a position within the framework of the regular PhD programme (5+3 scheme). It is a three year full-time study and requiresan education equivalent to a relevant Danish master’s degree.

Getting into a position on the regular PhD programme

Qualifications needed for the regular programme
To be eligible for the regular PhD programme, you must have completed a degree programme, equivalent to a Danish master’s degree (180 ECTS/3 FTE BSc + 120 ECTS/2 FTE MSc) related to the subject area of the project, e.g. chemistry, chemical engineering, nanoscience and materials science and engineering. For information of eligibility of completed programmes, see General assessments for specific countries and Assessment database.

Terms of employment in the regular programme
Employment as PhD fellow is full time and for maximum 3 years.

Employment is conditional upon your successful enrolment as a PhD student at the PhD School at the Faculty of SCIENCE, University of Copenhagen. This requires submission and acceptance of an application for the specific project formulated by the applicant.

The terms of employment and salary are in accordance to the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and The Danish Confederation of Professional Associations on Academics in the State (AC). The position is covered by the Protocol on Job Structure.

Responsibilities and tasks in the PhD programme

  • Carry through an independent research project under supervision

  • Complete PhD courses corresponding to approx. 30 ECTS / ½ FTE
  • Participate in active research environments, including a stay at another research institution, preferably abroad
  • Teaching and knowledge dissemination activities
  • Write scientific papers aimed at high-impact journals
  • Write and defend a PhD thesis on the basis of your project

We are looking for the following qualifications:

  • Professional qualifications relevant to the PhD project
  • Relevant publications
  • Relevant work experience
  • Other relevant professional activities
  • Curious mind-set with a strong interest in electrocatalyisis and renewable energy conversion
  • Good language skills

Application and Assessment Procedure
Your application including all attachments must be in English and submitted electronically by clicking APPLY NOW below.

Please include

  1. Motivated letter of application (max. one page)
  2. Your motivation for applying for the specific PhD project
  3. Curriculum vitae including information about your education, experience, language skills and other skills relevant for the position
  4. Original diplomas for Bachelor of Science or Master of Science and transcript of records in the original language, including an authorized English translation if issued in another language than English or Danish. If not completed, a certified/signed copy of a recent transcript of records or a written statement from the institution or supervisor is accepted.
  5. Publication list (if possible)
  6. Reference letters (if available)

Application deadline:
The deadline for applications is 7 November 2021, 23:59 GMT +1.

We reserve the right not to consider material received after the deadline, and not to consider applications that do not live up to the abovementioned requirements.

The further process
After deadline, a number of applicants will be selected for academic assessment by an unbiased expert assessor. You are notified, whether you will be passed for assessment.

The assessor will assess the qualifications and experience of the shortlisted applicants with respect to the above mentioned research area, techniques, skills and other requirements. The assessor will conclude whether each applicant is qualified and, if so, for which of the two models. The assessed applicants will have the opportunity to comment on their assessment. You can read about the recruitment process at http://employment.ku.dk/faculty/recruitment-process/.

Interviews with selected candidates are expected to be held in week 50-51.
