The Department of Interface Science at the Fritz Haber Institute is offering a Postdoc and PhD positions in advanced functional materials with applications in heterogeneous catalysis, energy conversion and electrochemistry, headed by Prof. Beatriz Roldan Cuenya.

About the project:
  • The project is Probing the structure of advanced materials for thermal and electrocatalysis using synchrotron radiation
  • A central aspect of this project is the application and development of complimentary synchrotron radiation techniques (X-ray absorption spectroscopy, high-energy X-ray diffraction coupled with pair distribution function analysis, small-angle X-ray scattering) that provide information about the transformations of the catalyst structure and composition on different length scales under catalytically relevant conditions.
  • The PostDoc position is initially limited to two years with the option for an extension.
  • The PhD position is typically for three years.
Requirements:

For Postdoc applicant

  • PhD degree in Physics, Chemistry, Material Science or related field.
  • Experience with synchrotron-based techniques (X-ray absorption spectroscopy, high-energy X-ray diffraction coupled with pair distribution function analysis or small-angle X-ray scattering) is required.
  • Good language and communication skills in English are needed.
  • Basic programming skills and experience and interest in data analysis and data science would be profitable.

For PhD applicant

  • Master degree in physics, chemistry, material science or related field.
  • Previous experience with synchrotron-based techniques (X-ray absorption spectroscopy, high-energy X-ray diffraction coupled with pair distribution function analysis or small-angle X-ray scattering) would be beneficial but not mandatory.
  • Good language and communication skills in English are needed.
  • Basic programming skills and experience and/or interest in data analysis and data science would be profitable.
