Jobbeschreibung Your tasks:
The successful candidates will have the opportunity to gather experiences in different microscopic techniques for heterogeneous catalysis. In heterogeneous catalysis, the catalytic conversion happens at the surface of a solid and is influenced by the presence of defects. The local geometric and electronic contributions of these local alterations from the ideal structure are difficult to describe by common surface and bulk averaging methods.

In addition, the electronic and geometric structure of solid catalysts in their active states dynamically responds to the applied chemical potential of the gaseous environment. To conclude on relevant morphological and electronic changes structural dynamics have to be tracked in-situ.

The successful candidates will, therefore, work on unraveling surface termination, and defect structures at highest resolution and will use different quasi in-situ and in-situ microscopic techniques to track catalysis induced changes. The applied analytical portfolio ranges from bright field TEM, STEM with different detectors, over EELS/EDX to X-ray microscopy.

The outcome of the projects will directly contribute to the establishment of new structure-activity correlations of heterogeneous catalysts, which will provide new insights into heterogeneous catalysis.
Qualifikationen Your profile: We are looking for highly motivated scientists with conceptual skills, who can work independently, and are able to adopt new methods quickly. Required qualifications include a PhD in chemistry, materials science, or physics. A strong proven research background in electron microscopy or X-ray microscopy is mandatory. In addition, knowledge in heterogeneous catalysis is advantageous.
