May 2020


One postdoc and one PhD position are available in the group of Jun.-Prof. Corina Andronescu (Technical Chemistry III – Electrochemical catalysis) at University Duisburg-Essen (Germany).

Both positions are funded in the framework of the BMBF - NanoMatFutur project: "MatGasDif -NanoMATerials as basis for GASDIFfusion electrodes for highly selective CO2 reduction". The project aims to develop catalyst modified gas diffusion electrodes for selective conversion of CO2 to C2 products. An interdisciplinary team consisting of one postdoc and 3 PhD students will join effort in the next five years to achieve the goal of the project.

For the postdoc position (Ref: 257-20) a 2-year contract is offered (salary level TVL 13 -100%).

For the PhD student position (Ref: 258-20) a 3-year contract is offered (salary level TVL 13 50%).

A detailed description of the two mentioned positions are available in both English and German on the group webpage:

The application should contain the application letter + CV (including publication list) and should be submitted via e-mail to until 05.06.2020.

Postdoc position in São Paulo, Brazil

Do you want to work with electrochemical energy storage?

Nice opportunity in our lab at the Chemistry Institute, São Paulo University, São Paulo, Brazil. One postdoc position, FAPESP scholarship. One year with the possibility to extend for eight months more. Candidates interested in electrochemistry and energy storage; working on sodium and lithium ion batteries and supercapacitor electrodes, must send an e-mail to Prof. Roberto M. Torresi (


Candidates must apply until 24/05/2020 sending the following documents:

- A letter justifying the interest in the position;
- Updated curriculum vitae and
- Email and telephone of two (2) researchers for references.

Candidates for these grants must have expertise in electrochemical techniques related to energy storage devices, and physical characterization (SEM, TEM, vibrational spectroscopies, RXD, ICPOES, etc.) of materials. Previous experience with synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials and transition metal compounds is also desirable. Selected candidate should conduct experiments independently; assist in guiding students and in laboratory activities; and to be proficient in writing reports and scientific articles in English.

Electrodeposition of Functional Gels for Scanning Gel Electrochemical Microscopy
Scanning Gel Electrochemical Microscopy (SGECM) is a scanning electrochemical probe technique that measures spatially localized electrochemistry with a gel that is in local contact with the sample surface. The gel probe constitutes the heart of SGECM, which is currently fabricated by electrodeposition on a micro-disk electrode or an etched metal wire in our group. In this Ph.D. project, we target at functionalizing the gels to further push forward the technique for more applications in surface analysis and electrocatalyst evaluations. The Ph.D. student will be co-supervised by CNRS researchers Dr. Alain Walcarius and Dr. Liang Liu. Dr. Alain Walcarius is specialized in electroanalysis and electrodeposition of functionalized mesoporous silica films. Dr. Liang Liu is experienced in electrodeposition of sol-gel and scanning electrochemical probe instrumentation. The duration of Ph.D. is 3 years and the starting date is Oct. 1, 2020. The work will be carried out in Laboratoire de Chimie Physique et Microbiologie pour les Matériaux et l’Environnement (LCPME) and the Ph.D. student will register in Université de Lorraine, France.

Requirements of the candidate:
(1) Valid Master degree by the starting date of the position. If the candidate has not yet obtained a master degree, a letter from the current university stating the expected date of finishing Master is mandatory.
(2) Education background in Chemistry, especially in the field of electrochemistry and/or hydrogel materials.
(3) Experience and interest in programming for instrumentation and/or data analysis is a bonus.
(4) Fluent in English communication. French language is not mandatory.

Please send a complete CV, a motivation letter and a complete transcript during Master (translated in French or English) to:
Dr. Alain Walcarius
Dr. Liang Liu
