> Start:as early as possible

There is an open position within the Cluster of Excellence “Post Lithium Storage (POLiS)” for a/an

Postdoctoral Scientist (m/f/d)

The project aims at a detailed, molecular-scale understanding of the interactions between electrode and electrolyte in battery systems, which are investigated by means of high-resolution microscopic and spectroscopic techniques under ultrahigh vacuum (UHV) conditions and by coupled electrochemical studies, using well-defined model systems. Work is performed in close cooperation with theory. As a member of an internationally leading research team in this field you will contribute to the development of fundamental concepts, which will serve as basis for the systematic development/improvement of realistic post-lithium battery systems. Furthermore you will engage in intro¬ducing data-based approaches into experimental work.

Your profile:

  • Master’s degree (or equivalent) and PhD in in in areas related to the above project
  • Several years experience in UHV technology and experimental work under UHV conditions
  • Interest in modeling and simulation of physical processes
  • Very good analytical and organizational skills
  • Very good English knowledge (at least C1 level)
  • Independent and team- as well as result-oriented way of working
  • Engagement and enjoying innovative research

Your responsibilities:

  • Independent planning and execution of experimental work and development of new experimental approaches
  • Close cooperation with theory
  • Close interdisciplinary collaboration, in particular within POLiS
  • Occasional participation in tasks related to POLiS and the Graduate school ‘Electrochemical Energy Storage GS-EES”
  • Presentation of results within POLiS, at international conferences and in scientific journals
  • Participation in the supervision of theses etc.
  • Participation in efforts to introduce data-based approaches in experimental work
