2 PhD Positions: 3D spectro-microscopy of complex solid catalysts 1427 views

2 PhD positions in 3D spectro-microscopy of complex solid catalysts:The Inorganic Chemistry & Catalysis (ICC) group at Utrecht University  is looking for 2 PhD candidates within the framework of NWO-funded Vidi project entitelled “3D spectro-microscopy for understanding mass transport processes in catalyst bodies of complex porosity”

PI (principal investigator) is Florian Meirer).

Project: The project we aims for using a combination of X-Ray Microscopy (XRM) & Single Particle Tracking (SPT) via Single Molecule Fluorescence (SMF) for studying mass transport in single catalyst bodies over relevant length scales. The approach will be as follows:

  1. State-of-the-art XRM that promises 3-dimensional resolutions below 50 nm and provides precise representations of whole pore networks of individual catalyst bodies,
  2. SPT of probes through these very same networks and, providing the necessary data for
  3. numerical modeling capable of describing the material’s fundamental mass transport properties.

Required Qualifications

  1. A master’s degree preferably in Chemistry or Physics,
  2. Interest in fields of Spectro-microscopy & micro/nano-scale numerical modeling applied in the field of catalysis.
  3. Interest in imaging techniques & characterization of nanomaterials such as solid catalysts or other hierarchically complex porous materials.
  4. Applicants should have experience with programming or be highly motivated to learn it; knowledge about advanced data analysis methods (multivariate analysis, image processing) is considered an advantage.

Fellowship / Benefits: The gross salary is in range between € 2,191 – € 2,801 / month.
The faculty of Science consists of 6 departments:
Pharmaceutical Sciences
Information and Computing Sciences
Physics and Astronomy,
