We are looking for motivated students to join our group for the projects related to the electrochemical oxygen evolution reaction (OER), oxygen reduction reaction (ORR), and CO2 reduction reaction (CO2RR). You will be part of a team that designs and builds special reactor cells for scrutinising the surface chemistry of model catalysts under reaction conditions.
We are looking for motivated students to join our group for the projects related to the solid-gas interfaces and fundamental catalysis, especially the CO2 hydrogenation reaction on various metal-oxide model catalysts such a copper on ceria.
Experiments will be performed in synchrotrons (US and Germany in the future) using a combined spectroscopy and scattering technique that was recently developed. This approach is unique in the world and is both an exciting and challenging opportunity. The candidate should be good (or has ability to learn) Python coding, solid-state physics/chemistry, and vacuum techniques.
