Postdoc for Electrochemical Synthesis of Ammonia at Technical University of Denmark

Technical University of Denmark, Denmark has an opening postdoc position in sustainable development. All candidates regardless of citizenship are eligible to apply before January 05, 2020.

A postdoc position for Electrochemical Synthesis of Ammonia at DTU Physics.

The project aims at developing a fuel cell type electrochemical cell that can directly produce ammonia at ambient conditions from electricity, water, and air in a scalable manner. It is based on recent breakthroughs on electrochemical ammonia synthesis and is now aiming at scaling up the process. We are looking for a postdoc for understanding the fundamental mechanisms, while optimizing the process and the energy efficiency. This would involve fundamental studies of metallic deposition of lithium or similar very reactive metals, and the subsequent electrochemical hydrogenation of nitrides or amides formed on these surfaces under non-aqueous conditions. This will involve extensive use of glovebox, potentiostats, quartz crystal micro-balance, and include product analysis both quantitatively and qualitatively. The applicant must have extensive experience in electrochemical reduction and metal deposition. Previous experience with battery research may be an advantage. The successful candidate is well-motivated, hardworking and willing and able to work as part of a team. The candidates should preferably have a PhD degree in Physics, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering or Materials Science, but others with key skills relevant to the project could also be considered.

All interested candidates irrespective of age, gender,disability, race, religion or ethnic background are encouraged to apply. DTU develops technology for people. With our international elite research and study programmes, we are helping to create a better world and to solve the global challenges formulated in the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Hans Christian rsted founded DTU in 1829 with a clear vision to develop and create value using science and engineering to benefit society. That vision lives on today. DTU has 11,500 students and 6,000 employees. We work in an international atmosphere and have an inclusive, evolving, and informal working environment. Our main campus is in Kgs. Lyngby north of Copenhagen and we have campuses in Roskilde and Ballerup and in Sisimiut in Greenland.
