PhD position: 3D printing porous materials for heterogeneous catalysis Leuven Belgium,  

Posted on : 28 May 2017

Project Description

ProjectContext and job description:The Ameloot group at the Centre for Surface Chemistry and Catalysis (KU Leuven) is looking for a highly motivated PhD student to explore the applications of 3D printing in catalysis. The development of 3D printing and related additive manufacturing technologies have recently gained momentum in a spectacular way. Based on a computer model, these printing tools enable the direct and automated fabrication of a real-world object with an arbitrarily complex geometry, not accessible via conventional machining. The goal of this project is to explore the opportunities of inkjet-based 3D printing at the interface of chemistry and engineering.The Center for Surface Chemistry and Catalysis constitutes an interdisciplinary team of eight professors focused on researching the chemistry of the solid-gas, solid-liquid, and solid-solid interphases. The Centre currently hosts over 120 PhD students, postdoctoral scholars and technicians and is internationally recognized for its expertise in gas and liquid phase catalysis, porous materials synthesis and characterization, adsorptive separations, and related challenges in chemistry and chemical engineering. For more information on prof. Rob Ameloot who leads this project, including ERC-awarded research and previous publications in top journals such as Nature Materials, Nature Chemistry, Advanced Materials, Angewandte Chemie, etc, please refer to (check out the video on our brand-new facilities!) and are seeking:
