A 3-year PhD studentship in electrocatalysis and microfluidic flow reactor


Centre for Doctoral Training in Molecular Modelling and Material Science, UCL

Saturday, July 31, 2021 Competition Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)
London United Kingdom Chemical Engineering Inorganic Chemistry Physical Chemistry

About the Project

The Studentship

This position is fully funded by the UCL-A*STAR Collaborative Programme via the Centre for Doctoral Training in Molecular Modelling and Materials Science (M3S CDT) at UCL. The student will be registered for a PhD at UCL where he/she will spend year 1 and the first six months of year 4. The second and third years of the PhD will be spent in IMRE of A*STAR in Singapore. The studentship will cover tuition fees at the Home rate, and an annual stipend of no less than £17,285 increasingly annually with inflation (tax free) pro rata in years 1 and 4. During years 2 and 3, the student will receive a full stipend directly from A*STAR. In addition, A*STAR will provide the student with one-off relocation allowance. 

Start Date: 27 September 2021

Location: London (1.5 years), Singapore (2 years)

The Project

Aim is to combine electrocatalysis with continuous micro flow reactor to enable liquid phase heterogeneous catalytic reactions to be efficiently performed. The project will evaluate kinetics and energetics of electrocatalysis reaction and optimise the reaction conditions through machine learning (ML) algorithms.

The Candidate

The successful applicant should have or expect to achieve a 1st or 2:1 class integrated Masters degree (MEng, MSci, MChem etc.) in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering. The successful applicant will demonstrate strong interest and self-motivation in the subject, good experimental practice and the ability to think analytically and creatively. Good computer skills, plus good presentation and writing skills in English, are required. Previous research experience in contributing to a collaborative interdisciplinary research environment is highly desirable but not necessary as training will be provided.

Please contact Prof. Gopinathan Sankar () further details or to express an interest.

Applications will be accepted until 31 July 2021 but the position will be filled as soon as an appropriate candidate is found.
