Junior Professorship (W1 with Tenure Track W2) in "Structure Analytics of Inorganic Materials"
The University of Duisburg-Essen is in search of the brightest minds
We are looking for outstanding young researchers, to whom we offer the best opportunities for their academic and personal development. We provide individual early career support through the Graduate Center (GC Plus), the Tenure Track Programme (TT Plus) and the Human Resources Development Programme (PE Plus). Wherever bright minds connect and collaborate, everyone involved will benefit. That is why we join forces and share qualification and guidance programmes for career development with the Ruhr-University Bochum and the TU Dortmund University as part of the Research Academy Ruhr (RAR).
Within the framework of the "Bund-Länder-Programm zur Förderung des wissenschaftlichen Nachwuchses" – the Tenure Track Programme of the German Federal Government and the Federal States – 23 tenure-track junior professorships will be advertised. Currently, we are in search of eligible candidates for the following tenure-track junior professorship at the Faculty of Chemistry:
Junior Professor (m/f/d) in
"Structure Analytics of Inorganic Materials"
(Salary Class Group W1 LBesO W – with Tenure Track as per W2)
We are looking for an excellent junior scientist with an area of expertise in the field of analyzing solid-state materials using modern experimental techniques such as electron microscopy, spectroscopy and diffraction and/or in the field of applying new theoretical methods for structure analysis. A focus on inorganic functional materials, for example transition metal compounds such as nanomaterials, porous materials, catalysts or colloids is beneficial. The development of a research profile for in situ and operando analysis of particles and surfaces in the liquid phase, for example by using synchrotron radiation, is encouraged. We seek to complement the existing fields of research within the Faculty of Chemistry and the Universities' main research areas of Water research and Nanoscience. In particular, the Collaborative Research Centre/Transregio 247 "Heterogeneous Catalysis in the Liquid Phase" should be further strengthened by the research proposed by the candidate. Ideally, the successful candidate will contribute to the CRC's goal to unravel the role of defects and microstructure of mixed oxides for their catalytic reactivity in the liquid phase in the medium term.
The willingness to cooperate within the Faculty of Chemistry, CENIDE (www.cenide.de) and ZWU (Centre for Water and Environmental Research, https://www.uni-due.de/zwu) as well as the CRC/TRR 247 (www.trr247.de) is expected. The laboratories for this professorship will be located at the Campus in Essen, where state-of-the-art infrastructure for research in this area is provided. The applicant can also access the equipment of the DFG core facility ICAN at the Campus in Duisburg (www.uni-due.de/cenide/ican). The Junior Professor will teach inorganic chemistry in the study programs of the Faculty of Chemistry.
Publications in the field of expertise in peer-reviewed journals are expected, especially in leading international journals.
Experience in the procurement of competitive third-party funding, involvement in international research and international experience are desirable. Furthermore, leadership experience in research is beneficial.
The University of Duisburg-Essen places great emphasis on excellence in teaching. Candidates must present their teaching concepts, showing their relevance to the research profile of the University of Duisburg-Essen.
Applicants must show aptitude for participation in academic self-administration.
The hiring requirements comply with § 36 of the Higher Education Act of North Rhine-Westphalia (HG).
Teaching requirements currently are four hours of teaching during the first, and five hours of teaching during the second employment stage of the Junior Professorship. Employment is contingent on the presentation of the corresponding requirements for temporary civil service. The duration of employment complies with § 39 Sect. 5 HG.
The University of Duisburg-Essen promotes the diversity of its members (https://www.uni-due.de/diversity). It strives to increase the percentage of women in its academic staff and therefore emphatically invites qualified women to apply. In the case of equal qualifications, female candidates will be considered with preference (Equal Opportunities Act). As per § 2 Sect. 3 SGB IX, applications by candidates with a disability or equivalent status are especially welcome.
Applications with the usual documents (CV, list of publications, documentation of academic and professional development, copies of relevant documents and certificates, an exposé of the applicant's research profile with reference to its relevance for the University of Duisburg-Essen, a list of successful external grant applications, a list of courses taught and a teaching philosophy, an enumeration of experience in academic self-administration) should be sent until 09.03.2020 to the Dean of the Faculty of Chemistry: Dekan der Fakultät für Chemie der Universität Duisburg-Essen, Prof. Dr. Torsten C. Schmidt, Universitätsstr. 2, 45141 Essen, Germany,email@example.com
