Institute: Laboratory of Photonics and Interfaces, Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, Switzerlandhttps://www.epfl.ch/labs/lpi/
Laboratory Director: Prof. Michael Grätzel
Thesis co-advisor: Dr. Dan Ren
Job Description: We are looking for talented and motivated candidates to pursue research in designing solar-driven carbon dioxide reduction systems. We aim at developing systems combining photovoltaics, electrolyzers and microbials together for solar-driven CO2 reduction to ethanol and n-butanol, with particular interest in designing efficient electrocatalysts for CO2 reduction and understanding the reaction mechanism at the interfaces using operando spectroscopic techniques.
Requirements: The candidate should hold a Bachelor’s/Master’s degree in Chemistry, Materials Science, Chemical Engineering or other related disciplines. Demonstrated experience in electrocatalysis or Raman/IR spectroscopy is necessary. The candidate should enjoy teamwork and be willing to collaborate among the group members. Proven English proficiency is required.
How to apply: Interested candidates should send a CV and transcript in one single pdf format via email to firstname.lastname@example.org before 30th November. Only shortlisted candidate will be contacted and scheduled for interview in early December. The starting date of the position is expected to be 1st April 2020.
About LPI: The main focus of research at LPI is on photo-systems that generated electric power or fuels from sunlight. The great majority of devices examined in our laboratories employs mesoscopic structures composed of nano sized particles as a key substrate element. In fact, it was the Grätzel’s group at LPI that pioneered the use of such mesoscopic architectures for the solar production of electricity and fuels.
Solar fuel sub-group in LPI is interested in developing efficient photoelectrodes and electrocatalysts for converting small molecules such as H2 O and CO2 to value-added products including H2 , CO, C2 H4 and ethanol. Apart from electrode/catalyst design and system engineering, employing the state-of-the-art operando Raman spectroscopy and operando synchrotron techniques to gain the mechanistic insights into the electrode/electrolyte interfaces is also our research interest.
