The DTU Chemistry at Technical University of Denmark is inviting applications for a PhD fellowship within inorganic materials research.
About the project:
- The project will be linked to collaborative research projects in the department with other university partners and chemical industry.
- The position will involve synthesis of inorganic, metal-organic, and nanostructured materials, as well as detailed structural characterization, and catalyst testing.
- The project has a strong dimension of application of international large-scale facilities for materials characterization.
- These experiments will be performed at neutron sources and synchrotrons located in Europe, USA, and Japan.
- The selected candidate is expected to be actively engaged in all aspects of these experiments.
- Applicant is expected to be highly motivated and must hold master’s degree or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to the master’s degree in chemistry or chemical engineering.
- Candidate must have a strong background in experimental chemistry and commitment to research.
- Candidate must have a solid background in synthetic inorganic chemistry and crystallography.
- Applicant with background in catalysis and characterization of nanostructured materials would be considered an advantage.
- Candidates must be able to work independently, to plan and carry out complicated tasks, and to be a part of a large, dynamic group.
- Applicant must possess good communication skills in both written and spoken English.
Starting date: January 2019 or shortly after.
- Apply online and application must be submitted as one pdf file containing the following materials:
- A letter motivating the application (cover letter)
- Curriculum vitae
- At least one recommendation letter from previous supervisor(s)
- Grade transcripts and BSc/MSc diploma
- Excel sheet with translation of grades to the Danish grading system
