    Could you envision “seeing” chemical reactions being catalyzed at the atomic-scale? 

    Two or more PostDoc positions are now open for experimental research in nanoparticle catalysis using advanced operando electron microscopy at the Center for Visualizing Catalytic Processes (VISION). 

    VISION is developing and applying a new unique platform for visualizing catalytic nanoparticles and reactions at the atomic-level by integrating cutting-edge electron microscopy, microfabricated nanoreactors, nanoparticle synthesis and computational modelling. This approach enables new, direct operando observations that are urgently needed to advance mechanistic insight into catalytic processes at the atomic-scale.

    Your complete online application must be submitted no later than 10 March 2024 (23:59 Danish time).

    Requirements

    As a formal qualification, you must hold a PhD degree (or equivalent). 

    We favor candidates with a degree in physics, chemistry or materials science. Candidates should have documented skills in atomic-resolution electron microscopy and, preferably, experience with operando electron microscopy experiments, microfabricated devices, catalysis or surface science. Experience in scientific programming, e.g. using Python, is important. The candidate should also have demonstrated outstanding problem-solving skills as well as very good communication skills in both spoken and written English.

    Description

    Global energy demand for information and communication technologies may reach up to 20% of total energy by the end of the decade. Innovations on transistor technologies, following Moore’s law, can, in part,compensate for this rise and improve sustainability by providing more energy-efficient electronics.To sustain miniaturisation, and improve performance of electronics, new transistor technologies are needed that can overcome this limit.  

    This project will develop a scalable Dirac transistor technology based on large area integration of 2D and 3D Dirac materials (e.g., graphene and CoSi), and the realisation of high-performance device demonstrators at technologically relevant length scales. 

    In this project, the Atomic Structure-Composition of Materials research group is dedicated to understand the role of interfaces and defects in Dirac semimetal/semiconductor systems, via advanced transmission electron microscopy studies and correlations with device data and models.
