PhD Student Position “Synthesis and Characterization of Novel Oxide-based Electrocatalysts for Fuel Cells” We are looking for outstanding and highly motivated PhD student for the BMWi funded project InnoKA, which is a joint project between the Chair of Technical Electrochemistry at TUM (www.tec.ch.tum.de), Greenerity GmbH (http://www.greenerity.com), and the Center for Electron Microscopy at the Technical University of Berlin (ZELMI, http://www.zelmi.tu-berlin.de). The position is at the Chair of Technical Electrochemistry under supervision of Dr. Hany El-Sayed and Prof. Hubert Gasteiger. The focus of the announced PhD position will be on the synthesis and characterization of novel, oxide-supported electrocatalysts for the anode side of PEM fuel cells.
We are looking for an excellent and enthusiastic student with a Master’s degree in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, or other relevant disciplines. Research experience in catalyst synthesis and/or electrochemistry is required, and experience in surface science and material characterization techniques is desirable but not essential. The candidate should have at least a professional working proficiency in English with strong communication skills, and be able to work both independently and as part of a team. We aim at research at the highest international level and candidates who fit into this environment are welcome. Preference will be given to candidates with a strong publication record.
Your tasks include, but are not limited to:
• The development of new mixed oxides using solvothermal methods.
• Synthesis and characterization of oxide-supported precious metal anode catalysts via wet chemical synthesis procedures.
• Morphological and electrochemical characterization (half-cell level) of the developed catalysts.
• Preparation of membrane electrode assemblies (MEAs) for PEM fuel cell testing in collaboration with other members of the fuel cell team.
• Start: August/September 2017
• Project duration: 3 years
• TV-L E13 (65% in the first year)
Persons with disabilities will be preferred in case of equal qualification. TUM aims at a higher proportion of women. Applications from women are therefore explicitly welcome.
