We are a young, innovative university in the middle of the Metropole Ruhr. Excellent in research and teaching, we think in terms of possibilities instead of limits and develop ideas with a future. We live diversity, promote potential and are committed to educational equity worthy of the name.
10 Postdoc positions in the fields of water electrolysis, electrocatalysis, water technology and purification, membrane technology, nanomaterial synthesis, surface science and theoretical chemistry
The University of Duisburg-Essen is seeking highly motivated postdoctoral researchers to join a team in the new research profile “Natural Water to Hydrogen”. The research fields of “water research” and “hydrogen” are being brought together at the UDE. 14 research groups of the UDE and 22 associated partners from academia and industry are working together to increase the sustainability of hydrogen production through anion exchange membrane (AEM) water electrolysis.
For the first time, a fundamental understanding is to be gained of how water quality, electrodes and membranes influence each other. Using organic and inorganic lead substances, it will be quantified how or to what extent water needs to be purified before and during electrolysis.
The projects involved cover multiple disciplines including technical chemistry, electrocatalysis, electrochemistry, engineering, water technology, water analytics, membrane technology, nanomaterial synthesis, physical chemistry, experimental physics, surface science and theoretical chemistry.
We offer an excellent and engaging interdisciplinary research environment and a pleasant working atmosphere in a dynamic team. The postdoc positions will be available with a run time from 1 November 2023 until 31 October 2026.
Please send your application with the usual documents as it is requested in the individual advertisements, detailed information on the available postdoc positions can be found at: https://www.uni-due.de/activesites/news.php
Application deadline is 15 September 2023.
