    Chemistry: PhD or equivalent
  • REQUIRED LANGUAGES
    GERMAN: Good
    ENGLISH: Excellent

Skills/Qualifications

We are looking for an enthusiastic, creative, highly motivated, experienced researcher, who has successfully developed an independent research profile in materials design (e.g. 1D/2D nanomaterials, MOFs, molecular metal oxides, perovskites etc), fundamental studies (e.g. time-resolved spectroscopy, computational simulations, electrochemical methods) or in applied science (e.g. artificial photosynthesis, photonics/optoelectronics, (electro)catalysis) to complement our research.

In particular, we are searching for researchers with expertise in in-situ techniques for mechanistic studies in (photo)catalysis and/or with atomic layer deposition (ALD). A strong contribution to the materials researched in the group (MXenes, TMCs, MOFs, POMs, nanocarbons) is desired.

Specific Requirements

A PhD or an equivalent degree in chemistry or chemical engineering or equivalent is mandatory.  Experience with grant application writing, paper writing, supervision of student projects and teaching (e.g. lab classes and chemistry lectures) is highly desired. Experience with project organization and management is beneficial. Competence in career advancement of young scientists and women and in gender mainstreaming is desirable.

 

The candidate needs to be fluent in English (oral and written). In addition, if not already fluent in German, the candidate is expected to obtain actual German language proficiency required for teaching of bachelor courses and participation in university board and committee meetings within a short period of time.
