The proposed Master project will focus on the synthesis of nanocatalysts based on three-dimensional carbon structures, on the understanding of the type(s) of active site(s) present on these nanomaterials, as well as, on elucidating the electrochemical reaction mechanisms for the conversion of methane to products on the synthesized carbon-based electrocatalysts.

The present Master position is suited for a highly skilled individual willing to develop research and innovation in the area of energy. Specifically, the workplan of the present position is devoted to advancing electrochemical systems for energy interconversion by an emerging cutting-edge field in electrocatalysis, based on carbon nanostructures.

The present position aims to create the conditions for the selected candidate to obtain a high-level master dissertation, and to lead the individual to be highly skilled in research and scientific writing. Being successful, these outcomes would lead the student to suitably reach the next step in the professional career, independently if in industry of academia.

This is an opportunity also linked to CINE – Center of Innovations in New Energies, through the Research Program 3 – Methane for Products (M2P), coordinated by Principal Investigator Fabio Coral Fonseca.

- Requirements to fill the position:

Motivated prospective candidates with a First Class or Upper Second in Chemistry, Materials Science, Chemical Engineering or in related disciplines are invited to apply. Prior experience in the synthesis and characterization of nanopolymers, carbon nanostrucutures and in electrochemistry are highly valued, albeit not required. Applicants should also be able to demonstrate excellent written and oral communication skills, which will be essential for collaborations within CINE, disseminating the results via journal publications and attendance at international conferences. Candidates completing undergrad studies by July/2019 are also highly welcome to apply for this position.
