Postdoctoral Position:Cleaning Emissions for Vehicles using Heterogeneous Catalysis, Sweden
A suitable background is a PhD in chemical engineering, chemistry or physics, with focus on catalysis.
-The position is placed at the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology. The position is for 2 years.
Scholarship Description: This project will be positioned at Competence Centre for Catalysis (KCK) and at Chemical Engineering.
The project will contain preparing catalysts, characterize them, measure activity and selectivity. Micro calorimetry will be used for detecting the heat of adsorption and this is an important part in this project.
The results obtained will be used for developing kinetic models. At KCK we have access to several characterization methods like BET, XPS, TPD, TPR, XRD and SEM. Also DRIFT spectroscopy is available. Depending on the applicant’s interest the project can be focused more on experiments or on modelling.
