Deadline for applications(19 days ago)
Technische Universität BerlinBerlin
Technische Universität Berlin (TU Berlin) - Faculty II - Mathematics and Natural Sciences - Institute of Chemistry invites applications for a
University Professor - salary grade W3
in the field of "Physical Chemistry / Biophysical Chemistry".
The professorship will be part of the Cluster of Excellence "Unifying Systems in Catalysis (UniSysCat)".
Reference number: II-115/19 (starting at the earliest possible / permanent / closing date for applications 31/03/19)
Working field: The position requires research and teaching in the area of Physical Chemistry at the Institute of Chemistry. Teaching will be required in the study programs of Chemistry (BSc/MSc) and Biological Chemistry (MSc) and in the
service teaching of chemistry for other programs. Candidates should be able to teach in German and English. Furthermore,
candidates are expected to supervise students' theses on Bachelor, Master and PhD level as well as to participate
in the academic administration of the university.
The research focus of successful candidates should address the field of production, characterization and targeted modification
of molecular processes in biological/chemical, (bio)catalytic or switchable systems by application of state-of-theart
physical methods on multiple time scales. Candidates are expected to connect with researchers in the area of the
mathematical modeling of the systems under study. The area of research expertise should allow co-operations in the
molecular life sciences or other key research subjects of the Institute of Chemistry at TU Berlin as well as participation in
current and future collaborative research activities. Experience in raising funds from national and international external
sources and in collaborative research projects is expected.
Of particular interest are collaborations within the Cluster of Excellence "Unifying Systems in Catalysis (UniSysCat)".
The candidate is expected to contribute to the modeling, the characterization and the understanding of coupled catalytic
Requirements: Candidates must fulfill the requirements.for appointment at the professor level in compliance with § 100

information see TUB Website, quick access 144242).
We are looking for candidates with an internationally visible profile in the area of (bio)physical chemistry, who will represent
this area in research and teaching. The research focus of the candidate is expected to be in the area of spectroscopic
characterization of biological or chemical molecular systems. Interest in innovative methodical combination of
state-of-the-art spectroscopic and analytical techniques enabling strong interdisciplinary research to build bridges
between experiment and theory is desirable; focusing only in the field of ultrafast spectroscopy or NMR spectroscopy will
be insufficient. Cutting-edge research results with sustained leadership published in internationally visible peer-reviewed
journals and experience in raising funds from national and international external sources (proven by successful grant
applications of the last 5 years) are expected.
Applicants must show teaching experiences at university level. Additional experience in advising and supervising Bachelor,
Master and doctoral students is expected as well as experience in academic administration and in leading larger
