Description

The Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion (MPI CEC) in Mülheim an der Ruhr studies fundamental chemical processes for energy storage in chemical molecules. The department of “Inorganic Spectroscopy” is presently looking for a candidate for a PhD student or Postdoc position (m/f/d) in X-ray spectroscopy.

The position is available immediately. The doctoral researcher will work on a 3-year-doctoral-program and the postdoctoral position is initially for 24 months, with the possibility of an additional one-year renewal.

Your tasks

The appointed researcher will utilize a wide range of advanced X-ray spectroscopic approaches, coupled to in-house spectroscopy and theory, to understand reactive intermediates in (bio)inorganic catalysis. The MPI CEC provides a unique environment, which brings together state-of-the-art experimental approaches with theory to understand challenging question in energy research. This position thus provides the possibility to conduct pioneering research at the interface of theory and experiment.

Your qualifications

For the PhD position, we require the Master's degree certificate and for the postdoctoral position, we also require the PhD degree in inorganic/physical chemistry or a related discipline. The candidate should have a strong background in inorganic chemistry, a solid understanding of spectroscopy, and a sound foundation in basic concepts of molecular orbital and ligand field theory.

Our offer

We offer an international, dynamic working environment in a renowned research institute, family-friendly jobs and flexible working hours. The PhD will be remunerated according to the Max Planck Society´s funding guidelines for junior scientists and the postdoctoral position according to TVöD (Bund) in line with your qualifications and professional experience.

The Max Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals. Furthermore, the Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.

Your detailed application should include a cover letter with description of past experience, a curriculum vitae with the contact details of three referees and a copy of your degree certificate. If we have aroused your interest then please send your application preferably in digital form until 31 st August 2022 stating the reference code “SD015” to:
