Referenznummer: acjobs-st-108780

Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH - Vollzeitbeschäftigung
Start ab sofort - Online seit dem 16.10.2021


Conducting research for a changing society: This is what drives us at Forschungs­zentrum Jülich. As a member of the Helmholtz Association, we aim to tackle the grand societal challenges of our timeconduct researchthe possibilities of a digitized society, a climate-friendly energy system,a resource-efficient economy. Work together with around 6,800 employees in one of Europe’s biggest research centreshelp us to shape change! At the Institute of EnergyClimate Research – Fundamentals of Electrochemistry (IEK-9) –, we perform research on highly relevant topics related to the energy transition. For example, we investigate new battery conceptshow we can turn the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2)the fuel of the future. The aim is to develop sustainablecost-effective electrochemical systems with improved energypower density, longer life-time,maximal safety. Find out more about our missionfuture-oriented projects here: We are looking to recruit a Postdoc – Electrochemical Nitrogen Reduction The BMBF-funded project “iNEW 2.0” is investigating sustainable electrochemical value chains based on CO2, Hydrogen,N2. Here, we want to investigate the possibility of electrochemical reduction of molecular N2 towards value chemicals like ammonia at a high-quality analytical level. Electrochemical N2 activation is a new field of electrocatalysis. Catalysts are currently investigateda broad field of material classes. Although ammonia is often detected as a product, it has also been shown that this does not always originateactual N2 reduction, butNOx reductionother experimentally induced impurities. Careful analytical detection of the reaction eductsproducts is therefore the basis of new catalysis research. In this project, we therefore want to construct a high-end electrochemical setup with all necessary purityanalytical measures to ensure the detection of “true” electrochemical N2 reduction, before screening suitable electrocatalysts. Your tasks within this framework in detail:

Construction of an electrochemical setup for N2 reduction under consideration of educt purificationquantitative detection of the products with elimination of false positives
Development of quantitative (in-situ) detection methods for ammonia
Identification of prospective catalytic materialstesting under different electrochemical conditions
