EU RESEARCH FRAMEWORK PROGRAMMEH2020 / ERC
The research program in the department for molecular spectroscopy at the Max-Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz (Germany) aims at the investigation of reactive intermediates in asymmetric organo-catalysis. To structurally and dynamically characterize the interaction between catalysts and substrates in solution, you will use a combination of advanced spectroscopies. The main experimental technique will be based on ultrafast vibrational laser spectroscopy, complemented by Terahertz and NMR spectroscopic studies.
Potential candidates must have an excellent PhD/master in physical chemistry or physics. Beyond the passion for and experience in research, we expect good language and communication skills in English, flexibility, and focused research. Programming skills, knowledge in optics/laser spectroscopies, or experience with quantum-chemistry are beneficial.
The project will be held in the liquid dynamics group (Johannes Hunger). If interested, please send your CV, a letter of motivation, and a list of two references by email to email@example.com. Please label the subject of your email as ”PHD_PD_Cat_Surname_Name”. Applications will be considered until the position is filled.
