1. Fully Funded PhD Position in CO2 Electrolysis and Real-Time Mass Spectrometry Monitoring

Summary of PhD Program:

Organic Electrosynthesis has recently emerged as a powerful application for future sustainable chemical processes, Its selectivity and efficiency however rely on developing dedicated catalytic materials. Due to the poor time resolution of offline analytical methods, conventional try-and-error experiments are generally non-informative concerning monitoring electrode process transients and thus inapplicable for high-throughput experimentations, essential for the complexity of reaction parameters to optimize. You will be part of a team to advance and utilize a unique platform for online real-time analysis employing Mass Spectrometry for the investigation of selective and efficient chemical CO2 utilization in electrochemical processes.

4. Fully Funded PhD Position in Innovative monitoring solutions for modern energy grids

Summary of PhD Program:

The growing demand for energy transformation to counter the effects of climate change and reduce dependence on imported energy sources and raw materials is driving the European energy system towards a dynamic, supply- and demand-driven approach, often organised in local energy communities with a high penetration of renewable resources. Maintaining an efficient, sustainable, and stable energy supply requires integrating various infrastructures, including electricity, gas, and heat sectors. However, the fluctuating availability of energy presents complex challenges for local energy communities.

5. Fully Funded PhD Position in Structurally and microstructurally investigating mixed oxide (MOX)

Summary of PhD Program:

Mixed oxide (U,Pu)O2 nuclear fuels (MOX) have been deployed widely in nuclear power reactor fleets around the world, forming a subsequent dominant component of spent nuclear fuel disposal inventories. Compared to standard UO2 light water reactor (LWR) fuel, MOX fuels are chemically more intricate, and they undergo significant heterogenization of the fuel structure with increasing burn up (fuel fission) in the reactor. Such processes create pertinent challenges for MOX spent fuel disposal, particularly regarding the fuel matrix chemical and structural stability. As part of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) funded project Transient, a PhD position is open for a motivated and qualified individual with a background in materials chemistry, physics or radiochemistry to investigate the structural and microstructural stability of irradiated MOX materials and model systems.

6. Fully Funded PhD Position in Redox and radiochemistry of mixed oxide (MOX) spent nuclear fuel model system materials

Summary of PhD Program:

Mixed oxide (U,Pu)O2 nuclear fuels, also known as MOX, are chemically intricate fuels that have been used extensively in nuclear power reactors globally in which they form a dominant component of spent nuclear fuel disposal inventories. MOX fuels exhibit enhanced complexity over standard UO2 fuel variants due to the variable accumulation of fission products across the heterogenized fuel structure at the nanometer length scale. Understanding the redox chemical mechanisms that occur in these regions of the MOX spent fuel structure is critical to ensuring safe disposal of fuel elements. A part of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) funded project Transient, a PhD position is open for a motivated individual with a background in materials or radiochemistry to investigate the chemistry and redox behaviour of MOX nuclear fuel model system materials. The PhD position is jointly based between Forschungszentrum Juelich, Institute of Nuclear Waste Management, Juelich, Germany and Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf, Institute of Resource Ecology, Dresden, Germany.

8. Fully Funded PhD Position in Exascale Simulation of Power Grids

Summary of PhD Program:

With the increasing implementation of controllable grid elements in electricity grids, the complexity of the regulation and control of grid operation has increased significantly. In particular, the increased use of converter-based grid elements brings additional flexibility potentials for grid management, the use of which, however, cannot be trivially determined. For instance, powerful HVDC stations based on VSC technology can have a significant (positive) influence on the AC grid not only by controllable active power flows but also by providing reactive power and other grid services. To be able to handle the increasing complexity of grid planning and operation, one promising approach is the massively parallelized simulation of energy grids using (exascale) supercomputers.

9. Fully Funded PhD Position in Modelling of Power Grids for High Performance Computing Simulation

Summary of PhD Program:

The increasing share of fluctuating renewable energies in electricity generation leads to increased volatility as well as a strongly changed distribution of the power fed into the grid. This increases the requirements on the flexibility of the system and the operation of power grids. Additional electricity demand to decarbonize various energy sectors, such as transport and heating, as well as intersectoral flexibility options such as power-to-X lead to increasing sectoral interdependencies. Your task is to support our institute in the development of power grid models that are able to analyze this interaction of energy networks (electricity, gas, heat) and markets at high resolution.

16. Fully Funded PhD Position in EPR Spectroscopy to Investigate Redox and Electron Transport Processes in Polymer Batteries

Summary of PhD Program:

Organic radical polymer-based batteries (ORB) have garnered significant attention primarily due to their exceptional fast charging/discharging characteristics and the potential to replace rare and potentially toxic metals. The batteries rely on organic redox-active polymers (ORP) that undergo rapid oxidation and reduction reactions. The high power densities of current ORBs are particularly interesting for so-called “Internet of Things” (IoT) devices that typically discharge with rather high currents and short-duration pulse loads for data transmission. In this interdisciplinary project, continuous-wave and pulse electron paramagnetic spectroscopy (EPR) is employed to investigate charge transfer processes within the composite cathode to find an optimum combination of active material and conductive additive as well as understand the relation between radical density and battery capacity and degradation.
