The University of Bayreuth is a research-oriented university with internationally competitive, interdisciplinary focus areas in research and teaching. The Faculty of Biology, Chemistry & Earth Sciences at the University of Bayreuth is currently seeking to appoint a
Full Professor of Electrochemistry
at pay grade W 3 (minimum salary per month: 7,217 euros) to commence at the earliest opportunity. This is a permanent civil service position.
The successful applicant will be expected to play an active and leading role in the newly founded Bavarian Centre for Battery Technology (BayBatt)
BayBatt is a central scientific institute of the University of Bayreuth and combines its battery-specific expertise in physics and chemistry, materials science, engineering, computer science, and economics. The research focuses on safe high-performance materials, interface phenomena and transport processes, smart batteries and interconnected storage systems, and covers all size scales of battery research from the atomistic structure to particles, cell components and cells, battery modules and battery systems, right through to the higher-level energy system.
We are looking for a scholar with an international track record in the field of physicochemical issues in electrochemistry, especially with regard to applied battery research. One focus of research should be in the field of interface phenomena in electrochemistry. Expertise in combining electrochemical analytical methods with other analytical techniques, such as spectroelectrochemistry or in-situ surface spectroscopy (XPS, SIMS, etc.), to complement existing surface analytical techniques at the University of Bayreuth, would be an asset. The willingness and ability to acquire third-party funding, including in coordinated programmes, must be evident.
The postholder will be expected to play a central role in the interdisciplinary master's programme Battery Technology & Battery Systems Engineering that is now under development. In addition to this research-related teaching, undergraduate teaching will also be provided in major and minor subjects, especially in the bachelor's programmes Chemistry and Polymer & Colloid Chemistry along with the master's programmes Materials Chemistry & Catalysis and Polymer Science. The ability to teach in English and German is expected.
