Description

  • Organisation/Company: CNRS
  • Research Field: Chemistry › Computational chemistry Chemistry › Physical chemistry
  • Researcher Profile: First Stage Researcher (R1)
  • Application Deadline: 29/09/2022 23:59 - Europe/Brussels
  • Location: France › VILLEURBANNE
  • Type Of Contract: Temporary
  • Job Status: Full-time
  • Hours Per Week: 35
  • Offer Starting Date: 02/01/2023
  • • Synthesis of the new materials (binaries, ternaries) and heterostructures through a combination of air-free solid-state synthesis and colloidal synthesis • Full structural characterizations (from crystal structure to morphology) • Optical measurements from absorbance to photoconductivity. • Photocatalytic testing

    In the frame of the Z-project funded by the LABEX-IMUST at Lyon, a postdoc position is opened at IRCELYON and ILM in collaboration with MATEIS and LCH ENS Lyon. The present project intends to develop new chalcogenide-based compounds predicted by theory (DFT) for photocatalytic water splitting applications. Hence the Z-scheme principle will be explored by developing different heterostructures made by associations of promising compounds. The obtained materials will be fully characterized by different techniques available at the greater Lyon area: first from a structural point of view, then about their photogenerated charge dissociation ability and finally up to their photocatalytic activity. The recruited postdoc will have to develop new metal chalcogenides and oxochalcogenides heterostructures through a combination of solid-state reactions and colloidal synthesis. The new prepared materials then will undergo multi scale structural characterizations. In a second part, the successfully synthesized heterostructures will be explored further, by measuring their ability to separate photogenerated charge carriers using time-transient photoconductivity. Finally, the most promising heterostructures will be tested for photocatalytic water splitting.

    This postdoc is a joint position between IRCELYON and iLM, with partners for DFT calculations (at LCH) and electron microscopy (at MATEIS). We expect good organization and management skills from the candidate.

    Eligibility criteria

    • Good skills in solid state synthesis and colloidal synthesis • XRD diffraction analysis by single crystal and powder X-ray diffraction • Optical measurements from absorbance to photoconductivity. • Photocatalytic testing
