PhD position summary/title: PhD Position – Electrochemical Nitrogen Reduction

The BMBF-funded project “iNEW 2.0” is investigating sustainable electrochemical value chains based on CO2, Hydrogen and N2. Here, we want to investigate the possibility of electrochemical reduction of molecular N2 towards value chemicals like ammonia at a high-quality analytical level. Electrochemical N2-activation is a new field of electrocatalysis. Catalysts are currently investigated from a broad field of material classes. Although ammonia is often detected as a product, it has also been shown that this does not always originate from actual N2-reduction, but from NOx reduction or other experimentally induces impurities. Careful analytical detection of the reaction educts and products is therefore the basis of new catalysis research. In this project, we therefore want to construct a high-end electrochemical setup with all necessary purity and analytical measures to ensure the detection of “true” electrochemical N2-reduction, before screening suitable electrocatalysts.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position: Method development of cryo-STEM imaging

This PhD position is dedicated to the advancement of Cryo-EM imaging methods at the interface of Structural Biology and Electron Imaging. Cryo-EM has become a very powerful method to visualize ice-embedded samples including purified proteins at close to atomic resolution. Single-particle cryo-EM as well as cryo-ET are based on conventional transmission electron microscopy (TEM) exposures taken in underfocus. In this project, we aim to further develop the imaging capabilities based on scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) including differential phase contrast as well as ptychography in order to apply them to vitrified biological specimens.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position – Electro-chemo-mechanical optimization of ceria-based solid oxide electrolysis cells (SOEC)

The processing and improvement of next-generation solid oxide electrolysis cells (SOEC) is the core of a project funded by the Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF) coordinated by IEK-1. A particular focus is on the electro-chemo-mechanical stresses in the cell during electrolysis operation. In this project, the primary goals are to improve the processing and performance of the cells, as well as the characterization of the chemical expansion of doped ceria under relevant operational conditions. The latter demands complex experiments to quantify the chemical expansion of doped ceria under the influence of temperature, oxygen partial pressure and electrical potential with non-destructive techniques. In cooperation with our project partners, this data will supply the foundation for a 3D model of the electrolysis cell that will allow the analysis of mechanical stresses during operation, and supply the basis for optimization of the cell.

PhD position summary/title: PhD-Position: Operation of Local Energy Communities

The concept of organizing energy systems in Local Energy Communities (LEC) coordinated across multiple energy carriers has gained significant attention in the last few years as a way to combine local coordination with the need for national and international interconnection. In the EU framework, LECs have been recognized by the EU as a key component of the energy transition. The European Commission’s Clean Energy Package has also defined a legislative framework for the operation of LECs that aim at participation of LECs in energy markets. While coupling of multiple energy carriers seems a promising solution to further reduce carbon emission and to maximize generation from renewable sources, their coordinated operation is still a challenge.

PhD position summary/title: PhD-Position: Monitoring of Energy Systems for Control Purpose

There is no doubt that energy systems generate a large volume of data. It is common to find applications where a large number of data are generated, in real-time, from IoT devices located in various part of the system of interest. The use of those data to support control actions is nevertheless still very limited. At FZJ in the framework of the Living Lab Energy Campus initiative we installed sensors that total to more than a 1M measurements point. Your work will focus on defining methods and algorithms for monitoring and state estimation applications, that can take advantage of the large and heterogeneous (in nature and time resolution) nature of this data to support control approaches.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position: Application of Machine Learning to Ranking Exhaustive Enumerations of Molecular Conformers

Researchers at the IEK-8 investigate the chemical reactivity of organic molecules emitted to the atmosphere. To accurately predict the rate of reaction using theoretical methodologies, this requires the computationally expensive characterization of all molecular shapes. By joining forces with the Institute for Advanced Simulations (IAS-8), we aim to study and create machine learning techniques to fully enumerate the likely molecular geometries involved for both reactants and transition state, and rank them by their estimated relative energies. This information then allows for reduction in computational effort, as well as enabling hybrid approaches for subsets of the structures.

PhD position summary/title: PhD position: Model informed data acquisition for emission flux estimation using 4-dimensional variational data assimilation

Observations of atmospheric constituents provide detailed information about the state of the atmosphere but lack in temporal or spatial resolution. Numerical models provide a temporally and spatially resolved analysis of the atmosphere but lack of accuracy due to various uncertainties in the input data. Data assimilation methods enable to combine observational accuracy and model resolution for reliable analyses of the atmosphere. How-ever, the information content of many diverse observations from different platforms on the analyses remains unclear.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position – Impact of High-Frequency Demand and Supply Fluctuations on Energy System Design and Operation

Large energy system models optimize the size, allocation and operation of components based on simplified assumptions and finite time steps. Most of the models consider an hourly temporal resolution due to limited data availability and computational limitations imposed by the optimization problem. However, due to the coarse temporal resolution, it is not guaranteed that the optimized energy systems as proposed by the model would be operatable in reality. Therefore, the optimized models need to be tested for high-resolution time series, which steadily gain importance due to a growing share of renewable energy sources.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position – Modelling Near-Optimal Energy System Alternatives under Consideration of Economic, Environmental and Social Objectives

The necessary energy policy and planning decisions to achieve climate neutrality are complex, given the many possible technological options and social and political hurdles. Energy system optimisation models can serve as decision support by identifying system configurations that can achieve this objective at minimum cost. However, cost optimality alone ignores the social and environmental dimensions that are equally important for the political feasibility in reality. Furthermore, focusing on a single optimal solution neglects a range of equally feasible but potentially radically different system configurations. By explicitly modelling and comparing these alternatives, energy system modellers can more effectively support decision-making.
