The Ernst-Berl-Institute at Technical University Darmstadt is looking for a
with a fixed-term contract for 3 years.
The TU Darmstadt is located in the south of Germany, close to Frankfurt. TU Darmstadt is one of the most renowned universities of technology in Germany with top rankings in research and teaching. Our highly qualified students are responsible for our outstanding position as a university which is recognized in the areas of science and engineering.
Our research concentrates on the preparation of heterogeneous catalysts and on the understanding of structure-performance indicators in electrocatalytic reactions. They are used in particular for electrochemical energy conversion in fuel cells, electrolysers and for CO2 reduction. An integral part of this work is the electrochemical characterization of materials and the elucidation of reaction and degradation mechanisms on a fundamental and applied level. The reactions studied include the oxygen reduction reaction, the oxygen evolution reaction, the hydrogen evolution reaction and the carbon dioxide reduction. Innovative, automated characterization techniques are used to evaluate the catalyst’s performance. This enables the examination of numerous materials in a short time and thus accelerates the discovery of new materials. The corresponding reaction mechanisms that are essential for understanding the underlying processes are examined. We work closely with various institutions and companies from all over the world, especially the USA, England and within Germany.
Your main tasks:
We offer excellent working conditions in a motivated and interdisciplinary team. In an open environment you will have the freedom to develop and realize your own ideas.
Opportunity for further qualification (doctoral dissertation) is given. The fulfillment of the duties likewise enables the scientific qualifications of the candidate.
The Technische Universität Darmstadt intends to increase the number of female employees and encourages female candidates to apply. In case of equal qualifications applicants with a degree of disability of at least 50 or equal will be given preference. Wages and salaries are according to the collective agreements on salary scales, which apply to the Technische Universität Darmstadt (TV-TU Darmstadt). Part-time employment is generally possible.
Applicants should submit their CV and a Master's and Bachelor’s transcript detailing their interest and suitability for the position. A letter of motivation is not absolutely necessary. Please send your application, stating the given code. no. in the subject line, to the Dean´s Office of the Department of Chemestry, Technische Universität Darmstadt, Alarich-Weiss-Str. 4, 64287 Darmstadt, preferably per e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
