For our Institute Nanospectroscopy, we are looking for a

Postdoctoral Scientist (f/m)

(in the field of Physics, Chemistry or Materials Science).

The research at the Institute is focused on new materials for energy technologies such as photovoltaics, solar fuels, thermoelectrics, batteries, catalysts and hydrogen storage. Nanostructured materials are being synthetized and characterized using modern analytics, mostly at the synchrotron.

Job description

·       Perform research in the field of energy materials characterization using synchrotron radiation

·       Structural investigation of energy materials for solar fuels, thermoelectrics, batteries, catalysts, and hydrogen storage and photovoltaics, mainly using anomalous small angle X-ray scattering at the synchrotron

·       Further development of data analysis techniques

·       User support at BESSY II

·       Presentation at national and international conferences, publishing in international journals, patent protection of patent-worthy results

Your qualifications

·       Experience in the characterization of nanostructured materials, using synchrotron, neutrons, and lab-based methods, e.g. SAXS/ASAXS, and XANES, UHV experience

·       Scientific programming

·       Experience in the support of students and guest scientists

·       Strong interest in national and international collaborations and collaboration with industry

·       Very good knowledge of the English language

What we offer

Fixed term contract for 3 years. The employment contract is based on contracts for the German civil service (TVöD-Bund). We particularly welcome applications from women. Preference will be given to severely disabled applicants provided equal qualifications.
