Offer Description

Within the framework of the ANR PulseCOMETH project (ANR-22-CE050-0018) financed by the French National Research Agency (ANR), the research work will be carried out in the Unit of Catalysis and Chemistry of Solids in collaboration with the Laboratory of Spectroscopy for Interactions, Reactivity and the Environment, the Catalysis and Spectrochemistry Laboratory and the Rennes Institute of Physics. It will focus on the synthesis of photocatalysts, their characterization, as well as photocatalytic tests and kinetic studies.

The researcher will:
– will prepare semiconductor-based materials and photocatalysts;
– perform characterization of solid materials and photocatalysts using a combination of various physicochemical methods;
– conduct photocatalytic testing of methane conversion;
– conduct a study of the mechanism of photochemical conversion of methane;
– perform quantitative analysis of characterization and kinetic data;
– travel to project meetings and to perform short-term collaborative work;
– present the results obtained in English and write the corresponding activity reports, scientific publications related to his work.

The synthesis of materials and photocatalysts as well as photocatalytic tests will be carried out in the laboratories of the Hall Pilot Catalysis or at the Institute Centrale de Lille. The work will be organized by campaigns in one or the other of the two buildings.
Within the framework of the project, the candidate will participate in progress meetings organized in Lille or in the other partner laboratories during which he/she will present his/her results.
