Description of the thesis topic
One PhD position is available in the group of Dr. Damien Voiry at the University of Montpellier in France. The research project will focus on the design of novel low-dimensional materials as photo- and electrocatalysts for the electrochemical reduction of CO2 into chemical fuels. To obtain more information about the research, please visit our website (https://lowdimensional-materials.net/). The project is supported by the European Research Council under the ERC Starting Grant program. The position is available as early as September 2021.
We are looking for bright and self-motivated PhD student who are interested in the electrochemical reduction of CO2! Our research aims to understand the behavior of low-dimensional materials such as 2D nanosheets towards the reduction of CO2. The objective of this PhD is to explore the structure-property relationship for low-dimensional materials. The successful applicants should be able to conduct fast-paced research in a team-oriented environment and have good oral and written communication skills. They should have experience on the synthesis of low dimensional materials (nanoparticles or 2D materials) and, ideally, on the reduction of CO2. Knowledge with gas chromatography, HPLC and other techniques of analytical analysis is desired but not necessary.
