DTU, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Section of Materials and Surface Engineering (MTU) has an open PhD posion in the field of Electrocatalytic Materials. The Section of Materials and Surface Engineering performs research in the field of materials science and engineering involving theoretical, experimental and numerical approaches. The research themes pursued in the section can be broadly described as:
- Materials design and surface engineering
- Microstructure evolution and phase transformations
- Materials performance and degradation
The research is multi-disciplinary and involves aspects of physics, mechanics, chemistry, and manufacturing technology.
Responsibilities and tasks
The aim of this PhD is to develop, design and construct an electrocatalytic gas cleaning apparatus. The technology is completely new, and thus, several parameters have yet to be described and investigated. It is expected, that during this PhD, the most important parameters will be found and described for the process. Furthermore, an optimal design should be formulated on these findings.
