Description

Open Positions 1

Time Span as soon as possible for 3 years Application Deadline 28 Feb 2022 Financing yes Type of Position

  • PhD - Individual Supervisor
  • Field of Research

  • Mathematics / Natural Sciences
  • Subjects Physical Chemistry Description Applications are invited a PhD student positions at the Erlangen Center for Interface Research and Catalysis, Friedrich-Alexander- Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), Group of Prof. Jörg Libuda.

    Research topics will cover the following fields: Spectroscopy and Microscopy at Interfaces, New Materials, Low Dimensional Materials, Electronic Materials, Surface Science, Solid/Liquid Interfaces

    All research projects aim at acquiring a molecular level understanding of processes at well-defined interfaces using innovative materials concepts. The range of experimental methods may comprise spectroscopic methods (vibrational spectroscopy, diffraction methods, photon-based methods) and microscopy methods (scanning tunneling microscopy, atomic force microscopy) in both ultrahigh vacuum and at liquid/solid interfaces. The projects is embedded into an interdisciplinary cooperation involving partner groups from physics, modelling, engineering and applied materials science.

    The Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) is among the top-ranked Universities in chemistry research in Germany. In particular, FAU is ranked 1st in the field of Chemical Solid State and Surface Research (DFG Funding Atlas). We offer leading-edge projects, state-of-the-art equipment and excellent working conditions. The Erlangen Center for Interface Research and Catalysis covers state-of-the-art research on catalysis and interfaces in all its facets from basic research to process development. At the Chair of Interface Research and Catalysis (Libuda Group), we focus on the fundamental understanding of chemical processes at complex interfaces. The group explores complex model interfaces, covering surface science, electrocatalysis, photochemistry, in-situ and operando studies. Specifically, we aim at a mechanistic understanding of chemical processes associated with energy conversion, energy storage, chemical production and materials synthesis.

    We expect flexibility and commitment, but also communication skills and the capability to work in a team. For application as a PhD student, a diploma or master degree in chemistry, physics, chemical engineering, or materials science is required. Specific experience in the research field is not mandatory.

    The university promotes gender equality and aims at increasing the fraction of women in science. Handicapped persons are preferred if equally qualified. Please send your CV / list of publication / references / summary of research activities to:
