The project aims to advance and understand the defective metal oxide catalysts as a cheap and earth-abundant alternative to metal-based catalysts.
The ideal candidate will have some experience in heterogeneous catalysis and skills in the characterisation and analysis of particulate materials. Experience with first principles calculations (e.g. Density Functional Theory (DFT) modelling) would be beneficial although is not critical. The candidate should also be able to work in a team environment.
