The Young Investigator Group Nanoscale Operando CO2 Photo-Electrocatalysis is looking for:
Postdoctoral Research Scientist (f/m/d) "Insitunanoscale functional mapping of energy conversion materials"
Reference No.: EE 2019/24
The Helmholtz research group "Nanoscale Operando CO2 Photo-Electrocatalysis" headed by Dr. Christopher Kley at the Helmholtz Center Berlin for Materials and Energy
and the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society, Department of Interface Science (Prof. Beatriz Roldan Cuenya) focuses on material synthesis and nanoscale
understanding of solid / liquid interfaces for applications in catalysis and energy conversion.
We offer a full-time postdoctoral researcher to work on the characterization of novel electro- and photoelectrocatalytic materials employing high spatiotemporal
resolution atomic force microscopy under reaction conditions in liquid phase. Upon adapting existing cutting-edge AFM methodologies and protocols, the morphological
and electronic properties of selected materials will be investigated in-situ / operando under external stimuli. Combined with advanced spectroscopic characterization
tools and catalytic reactivity studies, nanoscale structure-property relationships at solid-liquid interfaces will be derived to guide the rational design of catalytic materials.
Your Profile Required
PhD degree in Physics, Chemistry, Material Science, or appropriate field related to surface science and / or physical chemistry.
Proven expertise in environmental atomic force microscopy (e.g. c-AFM, KPFM or electrochemical AFM) or electrochemical scanning tunneling microscopy and data analysis.
Excellent written and oral communication skills in English.
Self-motivated, detail- and goal-oriented with excellent problem solving skills in a multi-disciplinary team.
Good data collection, analysis, and presentation skills.
Proven track record with scanning probe high-resolution imaging in liquids.
Knowledge about electrochemistry and nanoscale characterization methods.
Stimulating interdisciplinary environment with unique access to state-of-the-art synthesis and characterization tools, cutting edge research facilities and collaborations at HZB and FHI.
Work place at the Fritz Haber Institute located in the quiet south-west of Germany's capital Berlin, which is a large, tolerant and cosmopolitan city offering a wide variety of culture, art, music, and outdoor opportunities.
Interested candidates should submit their curriculum vitae listing education, publications and research experience, a statement of motivation and career
objective (max. 1 page), copies of transcripts, and names and contacts of two references.
What we offer
Fixed term contract for 24 months . The salary is based on the Collective Agreement for the German Public Service (TVöD-Bund).
We particularly welcome applications from women. Preference will be given to handicapped applicants provided equal suitability.
How to apply
We look forward to receiving your application via our application management system by 21.08.2019. For reasons of data protection regulations, we are unfortunately unable to consider applications that reach us by email or by mail in the application process.

Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB) operates two large facilities for materials research: the neutron source
BER II and the synchrotron source BESSY II, which provide deep insights into the structure of materials and the processes within
complex systems. Other important focuses of HZB research are thin film photovoltaics and solar fuels. Each year around 3,000 scientists
use the HZB infrastructure facilities.
SCIENCE + CAREER + DIVERSITY = HZB
...is the formula for our successful human resources policy. We offer wide-ranging internal and external training programs for our
employees as well as a special support program for young scientists. Our family-friendly workplace policy includes flexible working
hours and telework arrangements.
