Outline

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship in the Hammond group at the Cardiff Catalysis Institute at Cardiff University.

The Hammond Catalysis Engineering (HCE) group specialises in several aspects of catalysis, including catalysis with porous materials and metal/metal oxide nanoparticles, primarily for liquid phase processes,  advanced catalytic studies of catalytic processes with in situ spectroscopy and micro-kinetic analysis, and the intensification (scale up) of catalytic processes.

Detailed project descriptions, within the remit of the topics outlined above, will be undertaken directly with the successful candidate. The project will entail a wide range of methods, including material preparation and modification, catalytic testing (batch, continuous flow), analytical studies and (in situ) spectroscopic investigations.
