As a PhD Candidate you will study the gas phase hydrogenation reaction of CO2 over metallic clusters with the main goal being to gain fundamental insight into the initial elementary steps in the catalytic conversion of CO2 into useful chemicals. Your work will be a combined experimental-theoretical approach, but will predominantly entail experimental research, in which you will use the FELIX free-electron lasers to study the reaction products of CO2 interacting with other molecules on the surface of gas-phase metal clusters. A second PhD candidate on this project based in Leiden will use a complementary approach and towards the end the two PhD projects will merge through a combined study. Supplementary quantum chemical computations will be performed by a postdoctoral candidate.
The Faculty of Science is an equal opportunity employer, committed to building a culturally diverse intellectual community, and as such encourages applications from women and minorities.
