RWTH Aachen - Lehrstuhl für Anorganische Chemie und Elektrochemie

The inter­di­ci­pli­nary clus­ter of excel­lence "Fuel Sci­ence Cen­ter" - Adap­tive Con­ver­sion Sys­tems for Rene­wa­ble Energy and Car­bon Sources", is fun­ded by the Deut­sche For­schungs­ge­mein­schaft (DFG) wit­hin the frame­work of the Excel­lence Initia­tive at the RWTH. The over­all aim is the deve­lop­ment of inno­va­tive engine con­cepts for highly effi­ci­ent and clean com­bus­tion, uti­li­zing the com­bi­na­tion of rene­wa­ble elec­tri­city and "bio-hybrid fuels" ( In this con­text our aim is the deve­lop­ment of adap­tive cata­lysts and cata­ly­tic sys­tems for the exhaust aftertre­at­ment of advan­ced com­bus­tion pro­ces­ses.
We offer a 2-year Post Doc­to­ral Rese­ar­cher posi­tion in an inter­na­tio­nal and highly inter­di­ci­pli­nary net­work with fel­low rese­ar­chers.
