We are searching for two highly motivated students to work at the interface of chemistry and materials science, with a particular focus on photoelectrochemical (PEC) systems.

Your responsibilities

One student will further develop Sb2Se3 thin films (and/or other chalcogenide materials) towards efficient solar hydrogen production. In addition to overall water splitting, alternative oxidation reactions towards value-added chemicals will be investigated at the (photo)anode.

The second student will develop a suite of advanced analytical techniques such as dual working electrode, transient photocurrent/photovoltage, AFM-based electrochemistry, and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy towards a unified model of PEC systems.


Your profile


We are looking for applicants with a Masters degree in chemistry, physics, materials science, or a related field. We encourage applications from enthusiastic, collaborative, and creative individuals, with good oral and written communication skills in English.


What we offer


We offer a PhD position in an inspiring environment at Irchel Campus.
