PhD position (m/f)


  • Master degree in Chemistry, Engineers in Material Science, Chemical or Environmental Engineering with profound experience in experimental work and a strong background in chemistry
  • Knowledge in hydrochar synthesis by hydrothermal carbonization, environmental catalysis and / or nano-/microparticle applications is an additional asset

The candidate will be responsible for lab-scale synthesis of the composites, their characterization including material and colloidal properties and reactivity testing in batch and column reactors. The PhD project shall explore the potential of the metal-carbon composite particles as reagents / catalysts for various reductive (Fe(0) or Pd-Fe(0)-driven) and oxidative (e.g. persulfate-driven) degradation reactions. It is expected to provide a deeper mechanistic understanding on reaction mechanisms and structure-property correlations in order to enable the targeted design of such composites for environmental remediation.
