Postdoctoral Research Fellow in chemistry/material science (ref 183591)

Updated: 4 months ago
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 15 Mar 2020

This position is part of the TomoCAT project, which is funded by the Research Council of Norway. The project is a collaboration between the University of Oslo (project owner), the University of Torino, and the Danish industrial partner Haldor Topsøe A/S. The overreaching objective of TomoCAT is to de-velop the tools that might pave the way for a more efficient utilization of industrial catalysts. Such cat-alysts are always or shaped into millimeter sized catalyst objects suitable for large scale industrial use. The key feature of TomoCAT is to achieve a description of how various chemical phenomena, such as catalyst deactivation, occur in these shaped objects, resolved both in time and space. Time in this con-text means the time of use in an industrial process, whereas space means spatial resolution across shaped catalyst objects. This requires a combination of catalyst preparation, extensive basic and spec-troscopic characterization and performance measurements in the home laboratory, as well as utiliza-tion of national research infrastructures and very advanced synchrotron methods for 3D imaging and tomography.
