Post doc position “Methane coupling with Plasma Catalysis”

In the group Catalytic Processes and Materials (CPM) at the University of Twente there is a vacant position for a postdoctoral fellow for at least one year. The task of the PDF will be to continue experimental work on coupling of methane to higher hydrocarbons with the help of both a di-electric-barrier-discharge (DBD) plasma as well as a catalyst. The project is part of the CatC1Chem program of NWO (http://www.niok.eu/en/17-november-2017-niok-nwo-open-symposium-on-catalytic-c1-chemistry/) and this specific project is performed in cooperation with SASOL.

As the research area of plasma catalysis is relatively new, the PDF should be eager to accept new challenges outside his/her comfort zone. Affinity with heterogeneous catalysis, reactor engineering and (plasma-) physics would be a clear advantage. Further information can be obtained from Prof. Leon Lefferts (l.lefferts@utwente.nl).
