  Postdoc
position(s).

The Fritz Haber Institute (Department of Inorganic Chemistry) offers a

Postdoctoral position for advanced and in-situ TEM characterization of plastics

Your tasks: The successful candidate will work on unraveling the local electronic and geometric structure (surface termination, defect) of polymers at highest resolution and will use different advanced, quasi in-situ and in-situ microscopic techniques. The applied analytical portfolio ranges from electron diffraction, over bright field TEM, STEM with different detectors, to EELS/EDX.
The outcome of the projects will directly contribute to fingerprinting different kinds of microplastics and to their environmental influence and degradation.

Your profile: We are looking for highly motivated scientists with conceptual skills, who can work independently, and is able to adopt new methods quickly. Required qualifications include a PhD in chemistry, materials science, or physics. A strong proven research background in electron microscopy and pair distribution function derived from electron diffraction pattern is mandatory. In addition, knowledge in heterogeneous catalysis is advantageous.

We offer: The postdoctoral position will be for 2 years with the option on extension and the opportunity for further qualification. The successful candidates will work with state-of-the-art aberration corrected electron microscopes and in-situ equipment.
The Department of Inorganic Chemistry provides a stimulating, international research environment for attainment of advanced academic qualification. Berlin is a large, cosmopolitan and tolerant city that offers you a wide variety of culture, art, music, and outdoor opportunities.

Your application: Please mail your application documents including curriculum vitae, list of publications, a description of research interest/plan, and the names and addresses of two referees at your earliest convenience to

  Postdoc
position(s).

The Fritz Haber Institute (Department of Inorganic Chemistry) offers a

Postdoctoral position for the conceptual design and construction of an environmental scanning electron microscope

Your tasks: The successful candidate will have the opportunity to independently design and construct an environmental scanning electron microscope (ESEM) for heterogeneous catalysis. In addition, a suitable transfer system has to be developed, which ensures a secure transfer of the sample between the ESEM and the transmission electron microscope (TEM). We aim to comparatively investigate the geometric response to the reactive environment of identical catalyst particles at several length scales inside the SEM and TEM.

Your profile: We are looking for a highly motivated scientist with conceptual and social skills, who can work independently and is able to adopt new methods quickly. Required qualifications include a PhD in engineering, materials science, or physics. A strong proven research background in SEM and device design is mandatory. The applicant is experienced in setting up complex analytical tools. Knowledge in heterogeneous catalysis can be advantageous.

The Fritz Haber Institute (Department of Inorganic Chemistry) offers a

Postdoctoral position for advanced and in-situ TEM characterization of functional materials

Your tasks: The successful candidate will work on unraveling the local electronic and geometric structure (surface termination, defect) of catalysts at highest resolution and will use different advanced, quasi in-situ and in-situ microscopic techniques. The applied analytical portfolio ranges from electron diffraction, over bright field TEM, STEM with different detectors, to EELS/EDX. The outcome of the projects will directly contribute to the establishment of new structure-activity correlations of heterogeneous catalysts, which will provide new insights into heterogeneous catalysis and material science.

  Postdoctoral Position
position(s).

The Fritz Haber Institute (Department of Inorganic Chemistry) offers a

Postdoctoral position for the conceptual design and construction of combined operando X-ray and electron microscope system

Your tasks: The successful candidate will have the opportunity to independently design and construct a combined operando X-ray and electron microscope system with the focus on heterogeneous catalysis at BESSY II. Hereby a suitable transfer system has to be developed, which provides the nanoscopic study with both the X-ray and transmission electron microscope (TEM). We aim to comparatively investigate the electronic and geometric response to the reactive environment of the identical catalyst particles on a (sub) nano scale inside the X-ray microscope and TEM taking full advantage of both techniques.

Your profile: We are looking for a highly motivated scientist with conceptual and social skills, who can work independently and is able to adopt new methods quickly. Required qualifications include a PhD in engineering, materials science, or physics. A strong proven research background in X-ray and TEM microscopy as well as device design is mandatory. The applicant is experienced in setting up complex analytical tools beyond the established techniques. Knowledge in heterogeneous catalysis can be advantageous.

We offer: The postdoctoral position will be for 2 years with the option on extension and the opportunity for further qualification. The Department of Inorganic Chemistry and its close relation to BESSY II provide a stimulating, international research environment for attainment of advanced academic qualification in modern science and technology.
