Full Professor in Architecture at Chalmers University of Technology

Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden is inviting applicants to apply for a professor position in sustainable energy. The funding allows successful candidate to work for two years. Applications are invited up to December 06, 2018.

The Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering has about 290 employees encompassing a broad theoretical knowledge base, from engineering science to the social sciences to the humanities, as well as design-based, artistic research. The combination of all of these perspectives allows for great interdisciplinary advancement in the field and a broader discussion of various aspects of sustainability. Together, we provide a comprehensive environment for architecture and civil engineering, well equipped to take on the common challenges of building a sustainable future.

[-Information about the research/the project/the department]

The main theme at Chemical Physics is to develop sustainable energy systems by using heterogeneous catalysis for alternative fuel production, emission control, energy storage, and fuel cells. The research is interdisciplinary with strong connections between fundamental and applied sience. Chemical Physics is a dynamic and international environment that strives for scientific excellence through teamwork. The activity within heterogeneous catalysis is a part of the national Competence Centre for Catalysis at Chalmers.

The theoretical activities at Chemical Physics focus on electronic structure calculations within the density functional theory together with mean-field modeling and Monte-Carlo simulations for reaction kinetics. By linking quantum mechanical calculations with kinetic modeling it is possible to bridge both length and time scales. Theoretical spectroscopy is used together with experimental observations to unravel fundamental reaction mechanisms and processes.

The post-doc will work in the Rntgen-ngstrm Cluster “In-situ High Energy X-Ray Diffraction from Electrochemical Interfaces” including groups from Sweden and Germany. The objective of the project is to correlate atomic scale information on stability of electrochemically active liquid/solid interfaces under potential control with their electrochemical performance for controlled oxygen and chlorine evolution reactions (OER and CER), the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) and corrosion. The theoretical part of the project will be conducted in close collaboration with the experimental collaborators. The main aim is to provide theoretical atomistic insight concerning surface stability during typical operating conditions together with reaction landscapes for the targeted reactions. The theoretical treatment will be based on electronic structure calculations using the density functional theory.

The position is a post-doc position of 1 year with the possibility of 1 year extension.
