New electrode material design for solar driven valuable chemical production

This Earmarked Scholarship project is aligned with a recently awarded Category 1 research grant. It offers you the opportunity to work with leading researchers and contribute to large projects of national significance.

Supervisor – Professor Lianzhou

As part of the prestigious Australian Research Council Laureate Fellowship program on new artificial leave design for solar fuel production, this PhD program will focus on the design and development of new light absorbing materials that can efficiently conversion solar energy to drive key reactions mimicking the natural photosynthesis, so called artificial photosynthesis, for valuable chemicals like hydrogen and alcohol production.

Preferred educational background

Applications will be judged on a competitive basis taking into account the applicant's previous academic record, publication record, honours and awards, and employment history.

The candidate should have strong academic background in material engineering, chemical engineering, physical chemistry or solid state chemistry. Research experiences in the related research fields evidenced by high quality research publications are desirable.

*The successful candidate must commence by Research Quarter 4, 2022. You should apply at least 3 months prior to the research quarter commencement date. International applicants may need to apply much earlier for visa reasons.
