Your tasks

  • Quantify the activity and selectivity of several noble metal aerogels for the electrochemical reduction of CO2 in aqueous electrolyte;
  • Transpose the most promising materials out of the above studies into catalysts layers implementable in a co-electrolysis cell, paying special attention to the parameters (e.
  • g. porosity) that determine their mass transport properties;
  • Test these aerogel catalyst layers in this co-electrolysis configuration, using electrochmical diagnostics to differentiate the overpotential contributions to the overall cell performance;
  • Use these results to compare liquid electrolyte and co-electrolysis performances, and to disclose the real application potential of the latter technology;
  • Publish your results in well regarded journals
  • Your profile

    You are a highly-motivated individual with good communication skills and easily adaptable to a new working environment. You hold a Master degree in chemistry, physics, material or engineering sciences, and are acquinted with electrochemistry.

    Welcome assets include prior experience in the fields of (electro)catalysis, fuel cells and or electrolyzers.
