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 synthesis, characterization and testing of the dual and triple atom catalysts using state-of-the-art in-house facilities or synchrotrons at SLAC or Lund. Specifically the work will involve:

  • Well-controlled dual and triple atom catalysts will be prepared using a UHV-compatible magnetron-based cluster source with time-of-flight mass filter.
  • Samples will be characterized in detail using e.g. STM, TEM, TPD, XPS, ISS to probe dispersity and chemical state of the prepared dual and triple atom catalysts. Synchrotron experiments, specifically EXAFS for dispersion and the number and nature of neighboring atoms, ideally in situ.
  • A cover letter motivating the application. (Max one page)
  • A curriculum vitae
  • Copies of BSc and MSc degree diplomas
  • Mandatory excel sheet with translation of grades to the Danish grading system (see guidelines and Excel spreadsheet here) 
  • Names and e-mail addresses or telephone numbers of 2 references.
  • You may apply prior to ob­tai­ning your master's degree but cannot begin before having received it.

    All interested candidates irrespective of age, gender, race, disability, religion or ethnic background are encouraged to apply.
