Post-Doctoral Position 2019 in DIFFER, Netherlands

Designation/Position- Post-Doctoral Position 2019 in DIFFER


Dutch Institute for Fundamental Energy Research (DIFFER), Netherlands invites application for Post-Doctoral Position 2019 in DIFFER from eligible and interested candidates 

About- DIFFER is the Dutch Institute for Fundamental Energy Research, one of the nine research institutes of the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). The institute focuses on a multidisciplinary approach to energy research, combining physics, chemistry, engineering and materials science. DIFFER’s research takes place in two main themes: Solar Fuels for the conversion and storage of renewable energy and Fusion Energy as a clean and unlimited source of energy.

Based on very promising preliminary results, obtained with model low-performance photoanodes, through a joint collaboration with Toyota Motor Europe, we aim to expand the concept to state-of-the-art photoelectrodes that can be scaled up. The source of our inspiration is the latest conventional PEC cell strategies which however cannot be directly applied in air based PEM-PEC operation.

Research/Job Area-  Physics, Chemistry and Material Science

Project Title- MAKING FUEL FROM AMBIENT AIR

Location-  Dutch Institute for Fundamental Energy Research (DIFFER),
Netherlands

Eligibility/Qualification–

Research group seek enthusiastic candidates that are willing to work in an international and interdisciplinary team of physicists, chemists and material scientists.
