PhD Research Fellowship in Inorganic and Materials Chemistry
Position as PhD Research fellow in inorganic and materials chemistry is available at the Centre for Materials Science and Nanotechnology, Department of Chemistry, research group NAFUMA, University of Oslo (http://www.mn.uio.no/kjemi/forskning/grupper/nafuma).
The fellowship is for a period of up to 4 years, with 25 % compulsory work. Starting date no later than 01.04.2016. No one can be appointed for more than one fixed-term period at the same institution.
The position is funded as part of the Industrial Catalysis Science and Innovation for competitive and sustainable process industry (iCSI) center for research based innovation (https://www.ntnu.edu/icsi/). Employment is pending the completion of the required contracts between the center participants.
The PhD position is connected to the iCSI centre for research based innovation (iCSI – industrial Catalysis Science and Innovation for a competitive and sustainable process industry), concretely to the work package on "21st century Ammonia Oxidation and Nitric Acid technology development" with focus on understanding PGM transport reactions and Pd-Pt recovery mechanisms in collaboration with the industrial partners Yara international ASA and K. A. Rasmussen AS. SINTEF will furthermore contribute to the targets of the work package. The overall aim is to achieve detailed insight through experiments and advanced characterization on mechanism for loss of noble metal during the exothermic ammonia combustion process (Ostwald reaction) along with obtaining insight into mechanism for catchment and diffusion in Pd-based catchment nets.
