Postdoc (f/m/d) in Chemical Engineering or Mechanical Engineering for Modeling and Design of Large-Scale Solar Water Splitting Device

Reference No.: CE 2021/18

The Institute for Solar Fuels at HZB develops new materials and devices for the (photo)electrochemical conversion of cheap and abundant resources, such as water and CO2, to chemical fuels. We use advanced thin film deposition techniques to fabricate semiconducting light absorbers, catalysts, and passivation layers. Our characterization methods include photoelectrochemistry, time-resolved spectroscopy, and a variety of surface science techniques. In addition, we use modeling and simulation tools to identify and solve performance bottlenecks when scaling up (photo)electrochemical devices.

We seek a highly motivated postdoc to strengthen an ambitious multi-partner project on the demonstration of highly efficient large-scale III-V tandem devices for solar water splitting.
