Impact Studentship (PhD) on Computational Catalysis

First-principles Studies Towards Understanding Catalyst Poisoning (Ref: 1722022)

Application deadline 30-Jun-2018

We are looking for a motivated and creative graduate student to work on computational catalysis. The project will elucidate the effect of carbon-based poisons for catalytic processes related to methane activation, focusing primarily on methane-steam reforming. This is a collaborative effort with Johnson Matthey, a British multinational speciality chemicals and sustainable technologies company, and aims at identifying next-generation metal alloy catalysts, resistant to deactivation via poisoning.

The studentship will start in Sep-2018 and is funded for 3.5 years. Stipend, as well as UK/EU fees are included. Applications will be reviewed on a continuous basis until the position is filled.
