Anorganische Chemie
The Fritz-Haber-Institut (Anorganische Chemie) offers a
  Postdoctoral
position(s).

The Fritz-Haber-Institut (Anorganische Chemie) offers a Postdoctoral position in Raman spectroscopy.

Your tasks: The research involves studies of nanostructured solids by Raman spectroscopy applying varying excitation wavelengths. The materials of interest are oxides and metal nanoparticles used in heterogeneous catalysis and energy-related applications. A joint characteristic feature of efficient materials is the formation of a thin surface layer in the dimension of a few nanometers or the re-structuring of metal nanoparticles under the conditions of the application. The aim of the project is to determine the surface structure at an atomistic level by combining resonance Raman spectroscopy and theory. Complementary spectroscopic techniques, like UV-vis and photoluminescence spectroscopy should also be applied. The measurements will be performed under operation usually in gas-phase reactions at elevated temperatures. The functionality is proven by gas chromatography or mass spectrometry of the reaction products formed. Isotope exchange experiments will be used to support assignments of spectroscopic features.

The candidate will be involved in the collaboration of the Fritz-Haber-Institut with the UniCat BASF JointLab at the Technical University Berlin within the framework of the project “Selective oxidation of alkanes”.

Your profile: The eligible candidate is highly motivated, ambitious, works independently and well in a team. Effective communication and writing skills are essential. A sound background in physical chemistry or chemical physics is required. Experiences in in-situ spectroscopy and DFT calculations are essential. The candidate should hold a PhD in chemistry or physics.

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 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

Anorganische Chemie
The Fritz-Haber-Institut (Anorganische Chemie) offers a
  2 Postdoctoral
position(s).

The Fritz Haber Institute (Department of Inorganic Chemistry) offers

Postdoctoral positions for electron microscopy and X-ray microscopic investigations of functional materials.

Your tasks: The successful candidates will have the opportunity to gather experiences in different microscopic techniques for heterogeneous catalysis. In heterogeneous catalysis, the catalytic conversion happens at the surface of a solid and is influenced by the presence of defects. The local geometric and electronic contributions of these local alterations from the ideal structure are difficult to describe by common surface and bulk averaging methods.

In addition, the electronic and geometric structure of solid catalysts in their active states dynamically responds to the applied chemical potential of the gaseous environment. To conclude on relevant morphological and electronic changes structural dynamics have to be tracked in-situ.

The successful candidates will, therefore, work on unraveling surface termination, and defect structures at highest resolution and will use different quasi in-situ and in-situ microscopic techniques to track catalysis induced changes. The applied analytical portfolio ranges from bright field TEM, STEM with different detectors, over EELS/EDX to X-ray microscopy.

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.

Your profile: We are looking for highly motivated scientists with conceptual skills, who can work independently, and are 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 or X-ray microscopy is mandatory. In addition, knowledge in heterogeneous catalysis is advantageous.

We offer: The postdoctoral positions 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, X-ray microscopes and in-situ equipment.
