Program Details

Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), one of the world’s leading research universities, is in particular well‐known for its joint research with industry. It is a community of scientists, supporting staff, students and partners. Chemical Engineering and Chemistry is one of the nine departments of Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). 

The two PhD positions open in the field of electrochemical conversion of carbon dioxide are fully funded. The students will be working at the Inorganic Materials and Catalysis group at Eindhoven University of Technology led by Prof.Dr.Ir. Emiel Hensen. The work will involve development and optimization of catalysts and reaction conditions towards selected products seeking for improved selectivity and high faradaic efficiencies.

The research of the catalysis group Inorganic Materials Chemistry focuses on novel inorganic catalyst materials with applications in sustainable chemical processes for production of fuels and chemicals. The approach is to develop a science base for design of catalysts based on synthesis of model systems, advanced in-situ spectroscopic and microscopic characterization, computational modelling of reaction mechanism at different length and time scales and experimental kinetic studies. Topics in the field of natural gas and syngas conversion, valorization of biomass, the use of zeolites and other porous materials in catalysis and catalysis for Solar Fuels are addressed.
