Joint PhD position between the Department of Chemistry, University of Basel, and the Paul Scherrer Institute in Villigen
We are looking for a PhD student for a joint research project of the Delley Group at the University of Basel (https://delley.chemie.unibas.ch/en ) and the Operando Spectroscopy Group at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI, https://www.psi.ch/en/operando ) in Villigen. The student will become a member of the Swiss Nanoscience Institute PhD school (https://nanoscience.ch/de/forschung/phd-programm/ ) and will benefit from its strongly interdisciplinary environment, stimulating internal SNI events, and the personal support and training offered by the PhD program.
The position will start as soon as possible after 1.1.2023. The goal of this PhD project is to develop an understanding of the role of sulfur in nanocatalysts. In the proposed project we combine the expertise of the Delley group in surface chemistry and catalysis with that of the Operando Spectroscopy group in synchrotron-based spectroscopy and catalysis. Of key interest will be the development of structure-reactivity relationships of sulfur-doped nanocatalysts through controlled nanoparticle synthesis, catalysis, and advanced X-ray based spectroscopy at the synchrotron.
Candidates must be highly motivated, should recently have obtained a Master degree in inorganic or physical chemistry or a related discipline, and ideally some experience in experimental inorganic chemistry, catalysis, and/or spectroscopy.
