Positions / Theses

For advertized PhD positions, please take a look also at the German website version.

Bachelor or Master thesis

  • biophysics / biological photosynthesis

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

If you want to join the group as a Bachelor or Master student working on your thesis, you could do so either in the field of biological photosynthesis (biophysics) or artificial photosynthesis (energy research for replacing fossil fuels). Please contact me for inquiring whether there are openings for pursuing your Bachelor/Master thesis project.

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 first-author publications in international journals),

  • has specific experience in a research area or experimental method related to the research interest of our group.
    For example, experience regarding photosynthesis research, biophysical infrared spectroscopy, solar fuels, electrocatalysis, oxygen evolution reaction, X-ray spectroscopy with synchrotron radiation, Raman spectroscopy, or further electrochemical operando methods

  • is highly interested in biophysical research or 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.
