The Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems, research
group Electrochemical Energy Conversion, invites applications for a Postdoc
position (m/f/d). The payment follows TVöD E13 or E14
The advertised position is embedded in the joint project with partners on
development of a new bioelectrochemical process. The position is to be filled
as soon as possible and it is limited to fifteen months.
In the project, the postdoc will develop materials and electrodes for an
efficient bioelectrochemical process. Finally, the overall reactor design will
The candidate should have a PhD in electrochemical engineering, chemistry,
and/or material sciences field with the focus on material design. The
candidate needs to easily adapt, apply and dive into new research fields
(e.g., biochemistry). Soft skills (excellent knowledge of English language,
communication, report writing etc.) are necessary for successful cooperation
with other academic and industrial partners in the project. Since the project
is mostly experimental, experimental skills give candidates a clear advantage.
Prior knowledge on synthesis of nanomaterials, preparation of porous
electrodes and electrochemical characterization methods is an advantage.
Organizational and managing skills are also welcome as it is expected of a
candidate to manage other PhD, Master's and HiWi students.
Support for professional development, integration into a young, dynamic team,
close cooperation and scientific exchange with academic and industrial project
partners, social benefits of the public service (Bundesdienst).
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. 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.
