University of Freiburg invites application for Postdoctoral position – 2019 in Germany from eligible and interested candidates 

Designation/Position- Postdoctoral position – 2019 in Germany

About-  University of Freiburg is one of the most renowned and strongest research universities in Germany, with a history spanning more than 500 years. You’ll engage in top-notch research and teaching with a unique spectrum of disciplines, perspectives, and people – right in the heart of one of Germany’s most beautiful cities. Postdoctoral position – 2019 in Germany

The University of Freiburg’s human resources policy is oriented toward the principles of equal opportunity and diversity. The university is committed to the goal of creating a family-friendly university.

Research/Job Area-  Chemistry or material science

Location- University of Freiburg, Germany

Applicants should have a doctoral degree in chemistry or material science and a strong publication track-record.

Expertise in thin film synthesis and characterization, photovoltaic materials and/or battery materials and (photo)electrochemistry is required.

Furthermore, eagerness to work in an interdisciplinary and international team is mandatory as well as good self-organization and the ability to work independently. We expect fluency in English.

Job/Position Description-  The postdoctoral candidate will be part of this team and focus on the synthesis and characterization of nanostructured/porous inorganic and organic thin film photo-electrodes and investigate their aptitude for light-induced charge storing by using several (photo)electrochemical techniques.

The development of highly integrated photo-charging devices is a growing research topic. While one can couple a solar cell with a battery in a modular fashion, new research directions tackle the development of integrated materials systems where light-induced charge generation and storage take place in one material.

The project SolStore will perform basic research on such materials systems in an interdisciplinary team to address the following questions:

  • What type of materials can combine both light harvesting and charge storage?
  • What type of different charge-storing mechanisms can come into play?
  • How can the photo-electrochemical properties of such materials / materials systems be characterized best?
  • What is the best way to assemble a photo-charging battery?
  • How should a photo-charging battery device be designed and optimized?

These questions will be addressed in a multidisciplinary team of scientists working on modeling of materials properties, synthesis and characterization of new materials as well as device design, fabrication and simulation.

How to Apply-  Please send in a complete and convincing application the above-mentioned supporting documents including the reference number 00000331, by date 25.02.2019 at the latest.
