Master and Bachelor Thesis
We are constantly looking for students who would like to do their bachelor/master thesis in the research field of heterogeneous catalysis and technical chemistry in the group of professor Palkovits. In case you are interested please contact professor Palkovits directly. For descent applications, please add to your request: your CV, a certification with all examinations and a short motivation. Of course, all students can get an overview first about topics by contacting the group.
Throughout the year, various research projects are offered in the working group. In the following, current research projects are advertised. Students who are interested in doing research work with us as part of their studies are best advised to contact the respective supervisors. It is also possible to personally visit the working group to get an overview of available projects. Dr. Irina Delidovich will be happy to answer any general questions you may have.
External research internships, bachelor and master theses
Since December 2019, Professor Palkovits holds a Max-Planck Fellowship at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion in Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany. The group "Solid Molecular Catalysts" offers research internships, bachelor and master theses on a regular basis. A detailed overview and further information are available via the following link.
At the moment, the following projects are offered in our group:
- CO2 activation on single-site catalysts - influence of the support (DFT project) (Nina Sackers)
- Investigation of zeolites for separation and purification of products from biotechnological processes (Jeff Deischter)
- Kinetic investigations of Pd-graphitic carbon nitride catalysts in H2-SCR (Maurice Vennewald)
- Electrochemical conversion of amino acids to platform chemicals over a multistep process (Jérôme Meyers)
- Applications of Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence in Chemistry (Stefan Palkovits)
