PhD Student (m/f/d) | Investigation of Metal Nano Particles Solvation
Stellenangebot vom 05.05.2022
The mission of the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung in Düsseldorf is to understand and design nanostructured materials down to atomic and electronic scales. In this spirit, we conduct basic research on structural and functional materials, mostly metallic alloys, embracing synthesis and processing, characterization and properties, as well as their response in engineering components exposed to real environmental conditions. We work interdisciplinary, with intense mutual stimulation among experimentalists and theoreticians as well as among different groups and departments.
The junior research group 'Spectroscopy at Electrochemical Interfaces' studies properties and dynamic processes on solid interfaces using modern surface sensitive spectroscopic methods. We strive to understand basic phenomena of interface solvation and how these are influenced by the nanostructure of the interface. Amongst other techniques, we employ optical spectroscopies (IR, Raman, spectroscopic ellipsometry) coupled with electrochemistry. We are looking for motivated and talented students to join as PhD student (m/f/d).
- excellent B.Sc. or M.Sc. degree in Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science or a related field
- profound English language skills allowing scientific discussions and presentations
- practical experience in lab work and research
- experience with interface spectroscopy methods especially vibrational spectroscopies is an advantage
What we offer
The work is deeply embedded within the cluster of excellence 'RESOLV' (www.solvation.de) and in collaboration with the Ruhr-University Bochum (RUB). Thus, prospective students will be involved in the activities of this higly dynamic network and eventually join the graduate program of the integrated Graduate School Solvation Science (iGSS) at RUB.
