The results shall be described by established or further developed approaches. Experimentally deformation experiments shall be coupled with synchrotron x-ray scattering experiments as well as thermography with high lateral as well as time resolution. An extension of the experiments into the sub-micron-range is preferable.

  • PhD in physics or engineering or a comparable qualification, if possible experience as Postdoc
  • experience with mechanical characterization of polymers and structure characterization, e.g. by synchrotron radiation, computer tomography, electron microscopy, AFM
  • it is expected, that the applicant raises external funding to establish the research group and publishes his results.
The position is initially funded for two years with the option to extend the contract in dependence of the success of the work. Remuneration is based on the TV-L statutory salary scale. The recruitment will be at to the nearest possible date.
