Multicomponent catalytic systems, reaction path analysis
The DeLiCAT project focuses on the development of new computational methods to aid the design and synthesis of new base metal hydrogenation catalysts. The PhD projects focus on mechanistic studies in multicomponent catalytic systems and/or development of new computational methods for reaction path analysis. The successful candidates will become members of an interdisciplinary research team working on challenging problems of modern catalysis science and inorganic chemistry.
Successful applicants should hold a Master’s degree (or the equivalent) and have a background in physical chemistry, catalysis, computational or theoretical chemistry and/or computer science. An interest in and aptitude for integrating modern information technologies and chemistry are essential. An interest in complexity sciences and affinity for new method development is highly desirable. Communication skills are important, and applicants should have a high level of proficiency in written and spoken English. The successful candidate will be expected to cooperate closely with other members of the research team as well as with external collaborators from both industry and academia.
Delft University of Technology (the TU Delft) is a multifaceted institution offering education and carrying out research in the technical sciences at an internationally recognised level. Education, research and design are strongly oriented towards applicability. The TU Delft develops technologies for future generations, focusing on sustainability, safety and economic vitality. At the TU Delft you will work in an environment where technical sciences and society converge. The TU Delft comprises eight faculties, unique laboratories, research institutes and schools.
The mission of the Department of Chemical Engineering (ChemE) is to generate knowledge and educate people in the area of nanochemical engineering to improve the quality of life for a sustainable society, focusing on energy, water, health, and the environment.
The Inorganic Systems Engineering group led by Dr. E.A. Pidko (https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Evgeny_Pidko) will officially start at the ChemE Department in September 2017. Our key interests are directed towards the creation of a mechanistic description of chemical processes in complex environments and translation of such fundamental knowledge into design rules for new technologies relevant to sustainable chemistry, functional materials, and catalysis. The cornerstone of our research ideology is the interdisciplinary approach based on a complementary use of advanced theory and experiments which are not limited by the boundaries of classical research disciplines.
