Master and Bachelor internship

Internship projects are available on various aspects of NMR spectroscopy, electrocatalysis and redox flow batteries. The student will develop a skill set in either NMR spectroscopy or electrochemistry, both are fundamentally fun and practically useful. Systems of interest are 1) electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide; 2) electrochemical synthesis of ammonia; 3) redox flow battery. All these projects center around the overarching goal of helping mitigate climate change. For enquiries of project details, please contact Evan (evanwenbo.zhao@ru.nl).
