Post-doc and PhD positions : First principles simulations applied to supported sub-nanometric metallic particles

par Nord & Ile de France - 13 février 2020

IFP Energies nouvelles is funding two positions (one post-doc and one PhD) in the field of the simulation of platinum-based supported metal catalysts, in the context of the ROAD4CAT project (RatiOnAl Design of CATalysts, from the genesis to the properties of supported active phases, chair : P. Raybaud, IDEXLYON – IFP Energies nouvelles).

The PhD deals with the simulation of the mechanisms taking place during the genesis of the active phase, from the metallic precursors to supported single atoms, then to sub-nanometric clusters (see details). The post-doc deals with the simulation of the catalytic properties of bimetallic clusters, for dehydrogenation reactions.

Please contact Céline Chizallet (celine.chizallet@ifpen.fr) for information and applications (CV, motivation letter, possibly recommendation letters).

Employer : IFP Energies nouvelles

Supervision : Céline Chizallet and Pascal Raybaud (IFP Energies nouvelles) for the PhD and the post-doc, David Loffreda (ENS-Lyon) for the post-doc.

Location : mainly IFP Energies nouvelles-Lyon for the PhD, shared-time between IFP Energies nouvelles-Lyon and ENS-Lyon for the post-doc.

Start date : autumn 2020 for the PhD. The post-doc position may be open from now, depending on the availability of the candidate.

Duration : 3 years for the PhD ; 12 months for the post-doc, possibly extended to 18 months.
