PhD Scholarships in Electrocatalysis for CO2 Conversion, NUS, Singapore

Pre & Postdoctoral Fellowships - The Getty Foundation

PhD Scholarships in Electrocatalysis: PhD scholarships are available in the research group led by NUS Presidential Young Professor Yanwei LUM at the Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering, National University of Singapore (NUS). These scholarships are for the January 2024 intake. The research aims to develop highly efficient and selective electrocatalysts for the conversion of CO2 into chemicals and fuels. These catalysts will be integrated into lab-scale CO2 electrochemical reactors for the conversion process. The project will involve various activities, including catalyst synthesis and testing, material characterization, in-situ catalyst studies, and product analysis.
