EPFL-PhD Student in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering

LMER is a research group of EPFL / Chemical Engineering focusing on the science and technology of renewable energy storage. We are located in the Energypolis Buildings of EPFL Valais/Wallis in Sion. Our research focuses on materials for energy storage, i.e. hydrogen and the synthesis of hydrocarbons. Therefore, we investigate the interaction of gases with the surface and the volume of bulk- and nano-materials in different media. The open PhD position is on the electrochemical reduction reaction of CO2 with hydrogen in the aqueous electrolyte and investigation of C-H and C-C coupling mechanism.

Your Tasks
• Develop, design and build an electrochemical cell with in -situ Raman spectroscopy for the investigation of the CO2 reduction reaction on well defined metal and metal oxide surfaces.
• Investigate the electrode materials ex-situ with X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy.
• Synthesize new intermetallic compounds as catalytic electrode materials
• Analyzing of the electrode reactions in-situ at the synchrotron
• The PhD has to be completed in max. 3.5 years.

Your Profile
• You have a degree in chemical engineering, physical chemistry or a related field.
• You are a top-level student aiming to reach the group of world leading scientist.
• You are highly motivated and focus driven person able to solve a variety of scientific and technical challenges.
• You are independent and at the same time an excellent team worker.
• You are ready to work beyond the contract and commit yourself to the global competition in science.
• You are able to handle responsibility and you grow on your challenges and achievements.
