The Institute for Nanospectroscopy is looking for:
EMIL-ESR Lab head (f/m)Reference No.: EM 2017/35
The research at the Institute for Nanospectroscopy at the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie GmbH is focused on new materials for energy technologies such as photovoltaics, solar fuels, thermoelectrics, batteries, catalysts and hydrogen storage. Nanostructured materials are being synthetized and characterized using modern analytics, mostly at the synchrotron and in the Berlin Joint EPR lab (BeJEL) operated by Free University and HZB. The vision of BeJEL is to bundle methodological breakthroughs in different fields of EPR spectroscopy and create an interdisciplinary platform for EPR researchers, where novel experimental EPR approaches can be developed and applied.
Within BeJEL, the FUB and HZB based EPR groups pursue new synergetic routes of research, based on the complementary competence of the partners in the fields of protein, semiconductor and catalysis research. BeJEL’s infrastructure provides the possibility to carry out experiments on more than a dozen EPR spectrometers including cutting edge pulsed/cw S, X, Q, W-band and 263 GHz EPR/ENDOR and EDMR spectrometers and a worldwide unique Frequency-Domain Fourier-Transform THz-EPR spectrometer based on coherent synchrotron radiation.
The appointment is a tenure track position with an initial fixed-term contract for three years.
- Maintenance of the HZB-based spectrometers of BeJEL
- User support BeJEL
- Development of novel EPR methods such as EPR-on-a-chip and EDMR
- Research on the electronic structure of energy materials
- Supervision of bachelor, master, and PhD students
PhD in physics, chemistry or engineering
- Expertise in multifrequency EPR
- Expertise in method development
- Excellent scientific profile and expertise in energy materials research
- Expertise in user support and supervision of students
What we offerFixed term contract for 36 months . The salary is based on the Collective Agreement for the German Public Service (TVöD-Bund).
