Beschreibung: As a member of the Helmholtz Association, Forschungszentrum Jülich makes an effective contribution to solving major challenges facing society in the fields of information, energy, and bioeconomy. It focuses on varied tasks in the area of research management and utilizes large, often unique, scientific infrastructure. Come and work with around 6,100 colleagues across a range of topics and disciplines at one of Europe's largest research centres.

The Institute of Energy and Climate Research – Electrochemical Process Engineering (IEK-3) specializes in electrochemical converters with electrolytes composed of polymer membranes (PEM-FCs & EC) and ceramics (SOCs) as well as chemical converters for autothermal reforming, catalytic gas treatment, and fuel synthesis.

Our aim is to create cost-effective novel nanostructures based on non-precious metals to be used in electrodes for hydrogen production using water electrolyzers. This project involves world-leading and highly experienced industrial and research partners working to develop the first generation of commercial anion exchange membrane electrolyzers. The focus of the PhD study will be on the synthesis of 3D transition-metals based catalysts to be used on the anode side. A variety of emerging synthetic methods, using inorganic and organometallic precursors will be investigated and the resultant materials will be explored as electrocatalysts. High resolution transmission electron microscopy (TEM) techniques will be used, amongst others in-situ liquid TEM to study in real-time the performance and stability of the electrocatalysts. Detailed project descriptions and planning will be undertaken directly with the successful candidate.
