PostDoc position within "Operando-XAS" project

We are looking for a highly motivated researcher with experience in programming who will support the developement of an experimental setup for operando X-ray absorption spectroscopy. The research is related to reneable energy and is focused on developement and characterisation of new electrocatalysts for efficient water oxidation and CO2 and hydrogen reduction.

More information can be found here.


Bachelor or Master thesis

  • biophysics / biological photosynthesis

  • energy research / artificial photosynthesis
    (catalysts for non-fossil fuels from water, CO2 and renewable energy)

Maybe your are interested in joining the group as a Bachelor or Master student working on your thesis. Currently, several projects are available. Your thesis work may be either in the field of biological photosynthesis (biophysics) or artificial photosynthesis (energy research).

Application for PostDoc fellowships

We will support applications for a PostDoc fellowship (e.g., the prestigious and well-funded PostDoc fellowships of the "Alexander-von-Humboldt Foundation") provided the applicant:

  • holds a PhD in physics, chemistry or biology (or will get his PhD within the next 8 months),

  • is able to communicate in English efficiently,

  • is scientifically highly qualified (as proven by several excellent publications in international journals),

  • has specific experience in a research area or experimental method related to the research interest of our group (e.g., photosynthesis, solar fuels, water oxidation, X-ray spectroscopy)

  • is highly interested in either (i) biophysical research or (ii) energy research (solar fuels)

  • is highly motivated, and intends to promote his/her academic career by a PostDoc stay in our lab at the Free University in Berlin.
