The Vogt Laboratory of Catalysis for Fuels of the Future is looking for excited, motivated Master and/or PhD students in topics in catalysis like CO2 conversion to valuable fuels and chemicals, and ammonia synthesis from nitrogen.
You’ll be a good fit if you have (at least) one of the following characteristics:
- BSc/MSc in Chemical Engineering, Materials Engineering, Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science, or something similar to those fields.
- Are motivated by the energy transition (society’s shift from fossil fuel-reliance, to more sustainable ways of generating energy and materials).
- Are interested in figuring out how things work; why chemical reactions happen the way that they happen, and will be able to use that information to try to understand e.g. how we can tailor CO2 to make more value-added products.
- Aren’t afraid to work with your hands, work with gases, travel to synchrotrons (COVID-allowing), do some light wet-lab chemistry, and much dry-lab operando (in-situ) spectroscopy.
- Enjoy data analysis, some interest in coding is a plus (not a must).

The future of our planet relies on designing catalysts that allow free-of-charge sunlight to supply the energy required for driving endothermic reactions. We tackle this challenge for the conversion of molecules/ions to higher energy products that are still stable and may be used for getting back the energy on demand. While the most intensively studied example is the splitting of water to hydrogen and oxygen, our contemporary focus is on
the conversion of halides (Br-, Cl-) to the corresponding halogens (Cl2, Br2). Additional benefits of this approach are that it also allows for: a) green and safe procedures for bromination/chlorination reactions by avoiding the use of corrosive and toxic bromine/chlorine; b) direct production of bromine from sea water, rather than the industrial two-step procedure that starts with the production of chlorine gas; c) treatment of industrial waste water; and d) decontamination/purification of drinking water.

Plants compose most of the biomass on the planet. Indeed, one of the striking features of plants is their unique developmental plasticity that allows them to cope with adverse environmental conditions, such as limited mineral nutrient availability in soil. Recent findings in our group present new research avenues toward understanding how developmental reprogramming is achieved and potential biotechnological means of improving plant performance.
Our lab has an open position for a motivated graduate student (MSc and PhD) to study the molecular underpinning of these root responses at various scales: gene, cell, organ, whole plant. The lab uses multiple approaches including microscopy, cell type specific “omics” and developmental genetics.

The Inorganic & Materials Chemistry Laboratory at Schulich Faculty of Chemistry (www.deruiterlab.com) is looking for talented students at the M.Sc., Ph.D., and Post-Doctoral level. Student looking for research experiences in supramolecular surface chemistry are encouraged to apply to me by email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Our lab particularly concentrates on using non-covalent interactions to self-assemble supramolecular materials for addressing challenging problems pertinent to global energy concerns. In the proposed research projects new highly structured materials will be generated via a sequence dependent Layer-by-Layer (LbL) assembly strategy with various inorganic building blocks. The used molecular catalysts are based on first-row transition metals that are modified with supramolecular connectors, enabling their incorporation into larger supramolecular architectures. Reactions of interest include water oxidation, the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR), the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER), and carbon dioxide reduction. If you are interested I in the position, please feel free to contact me (email@example.com).
