Postdoctoral Position - Kinetic and Spectroscopic Investigations in Selective Dehydrogenation

Postdoctoral Position - Kinetic and Spectroscopic Investigations in Selective Dehydrogenation

Max Planck Society - Department of Inorganic Chemistry

Berlin, Germany

The Fritz Haber Institute (Department of Inorganic Chemistry) offers a Postdoctoral position Kinetic and spectroscopic investigations in selective dehydrogenation.

Your tasks

The project deals with direct functionalization of hydrocarbon molecules applying supported metal nanoparticles as catalysts. The successful candidate will study the kinetics of selective dehydrogenation and functionalization reactions over bimetallic catalysts and perform or coordinate the functional characterization of the catalysts applying a combination of techniques including photoelectron spectroscopy at synchrotron sources and electron microscopy. The work is aimed at a deeper understanding of metal-promoter-support interactions in heterogeneous catalysis.

The activities are involved in the collaboration of the Fritz-Haber-Institut with the UniSysCat - BASF - JointLab at the Technical University Berlin.

Your profile

We are looking for a highly motivated scientist with conceptual skills, who can work independently. Required qualifications include a PhD in chemistry or chemical engineering. A strong proven research background in kinetics and heterogeneous catalysis is advantageous.
