[Expired] Prof. Franc Meyer, from the Department of Chemistry at the Georg-August- University Göttingen, is looking to fill a PhD position in Bioinorganic Chemistry and Electrocatalysis.
The research group of Prof. Franc Meyer, Department of Chemistry at the Georg-August- University Göttingen, is looking to fill a PhD position in Bioinorganic Chemistry and Electrocatalysis. They are looking for a highly motivated PhD candidate to work on bioinspired catalysts for H2 production in the framework of a collaborative German/French research program funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR). The interdisciplinary energy-related project aims at developing efficient synthetic mimics of the [NiFe] hydrogenase metalloenzyme active site. It involves ligand design, synthetic coordination chemistry, electrocatalysis, and the use of various spectroscopic and kinetic methods. Short or extended research stays can be spent in the partner groups in Grenoble (Profs. Carole Duboc and Vincent Artero). State-of-the-art equipment is available in both the Göttingen and Grenoble laboratories. The PhD position requires a Master degree (or equivalent) in Chemistry, team working spirit and good communication skills in English.PhD-position-Göttingen
