For our Institute of Nanospectroscopy, we are looking for a
(in the field of Physics, Chemistry or Materials Science).

The research at the Institute 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.
Job description
•       Perform research in the field of energy materials characterization using synchrotron radiation
•       Structural investigation of energy materials for solar fuels, thermoelectrics, batteries, catalysts, and hydrogen storage and photovoltaics, mainly using anomalous small angle X-ray scattering at the synchrotron
•       Further development of data analysis techniques
•       User support at BESSY II
•       Presentation at national and international conferences, publishing in international journals, patent protection of patent-worthy results
Your qualifications
•       Experience in the characterization of nanostructured materials, using synchrotron, neutrons, and lab-based methods, e.g. SAXS/ASAXS, and XANES, UHV experience
•       Scientific programming
•       Experience in the support of students and guest scientists
•       Strong interest in national and international collaborations and collaboration with industry
