For the research group of PD Dr. Harun Tüysüz we are searching for a

PhD student (m/f/d)
in the field of “Materials Science and Heterogeneous Catalysis”
in full time (39 hours).

The position is available starting from 01/06/2020.

•    Description of project: The project is associated with the Carbon2Chem  
     consortium that focuses on conversion of steel mill gases into bulk chemicals and
     materials. The focus of our sub-project is development of solid catalysts for
     conversion of CO to polymer and studying structure-activity relationships.
•    Tasks: Preparation and characterization of solid catalysts and their screening for
     CO conversion, and investigation of the reaction mechanism.
•    Further description: The project is coordinated between the institute and an
     industrial partner. There will be a close cooperation with the industrial partner.

•    Bachelor / Master Degree in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering
•    The knowledge of  materials synthesis and catalysis would be desirable
