Our research focusses on the understanding of novel physico-chemical properties of nanostructured materials at gas/liquid/solid interfaces. Therefore, we offer a full-time postdoctoral researcher to work on the investigation of liquid/solid interfaces under electrical potential control using advanced Cs-corrected (S)TEM-EDX instruments equipped with an in situ liquid electrochemical holder.
The Postdoc position is limited to 2 years but can be transformed into permanent group leader position upon appropriate performance after this period. Mentoring responsibilities of students are also already expected from the beginning of the position.
Required qualifications include a PhD in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, Engineering or a closely related discipline. Applicants should have proven experience in TEM measurements for the analysis of nanostructured materials and be able to develop an independent research program. A high level of capability and understanding in the operation of advanced TEM equipment and data analysis is essential. Additional experience in in situ (liquid) TEM measurements, maintenance of such instruments as well as electrochemistry would also be advantageous.
