Postdoc Position (M/F/D) | Bioelectrochemical Process
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 be addressed.
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.
