Job list from June 28, 2021

Postdoctoral position - Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Karlsruhe, Germany. We are seeking a highly motivated post-doctoral candidate with a completed PhD in chemistry and a strong interest in synthetic photochemistry and polymer science work in the field of advanced polymer design and synthesis combined with high resolution laser lithography. Experience abroad and a very good command of English are desirable. You have already gained experience in the development of 3D printing materials and in synthesis, in characterization with NMR, FT, IR and UV-Vis spectroscopy and DSC. Your work is aligned with the research goals of the Cluster of Excellence '3D matter made to order'. The cluster provides a collaborative environment for nanolithography focusing on the combination of advanced photochemical polymerization techniques, material design and characterization. The successful applicant will be based at the Institute of Nanotechnology. Further information here.

At the Institute for technical chemistry and Polymer Chemistry (ITCP) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), a postdoc position (f / m / d) is to be filled as soon as possible. The applicant will be responsible for the research and development of spectroscopic microreactors for the organic synthesis of valuable chemicals in an inert atmosphere. The task includes the on-line monitoring of the reaction medium and the products by means of spectroscopic methods. A very good university degree (diploma / master?s) in (organic / technical / physical) chemistry and a successful doctorate are required. In-depth knowledge and experience in the field of organic synthesis, including under inert conditions, is required. Furthermore, experience and a basic understanding of IR, Raman, NMR spectroscopy and similar characterization methods, ideally on-line or in situ, are expected. Please send your complete application documents to: andrea.koller@kit.edu by July 18, 2021. You can find more information here.

Knowledge Employee (65% part-time limited until December 31, 2024; E 13 TV-L FU) at the Free University of Berlin, Institute for Experimental Physics. Task: In plants, algae and cyanobacteria, solar energy is used to create energy-rich biomass from water and CO 2. This process of O 2 -forming photosynthesis is fundamental for the biosphere and atmosphere and a role model for the production of non-fossil fuels. After laser pulse excitation, the biological process of water splitting is to be followed in a time-resolved manner using new methods of infrared spectroscopy (100 ns to seconds). The measurements are carried out on previously prepared photosystems from plants (spinach) and cyanobacteria (blue-green algae). Employment requirements: Completed academic university degree (diploma, master's) in physics, biology or chemistry. More information can be found here. Applications are to be sent by email by 07/05/2021, stating PhD-PSII-2024 in PDF format, to Prof. Dr. Holger Dau: sieglinde.endrias@fu-berlin.de or by post to the Free University of Berlin, Institute for Experimental Physics, Prof. Dr. Holger Dau, Arnimallee 14, 14195 Berlin.

The deadline for submission is Friday or the last working day before a public holiday, 10 a.m.

To give job seekers a quick overview, the first sentence of the advertisement text should contain the advertised position (doctoral candidate: internal or postdoc position, etc.) and the institute or university that advertised it ("There is a doctoral candidate at the institute for xxx of the university yyy : internal position to be filled "). At the end of the advertisement, please include the address for applications and the application deadline. You can find samples in the current job lists below. Shorter job advertisements tend to be placed at the beginning of the list, longer and difficult to read job advertisements at the end.

If you would also like to publish the advertisement in the "Nachrichten aus der Chemie", you have two options:

1. The individual display with graphics, logo, etc. Here you can freely choose the design and text length. For examples of designed advertisements, see our Industry and Public Service job list. The cost of the advertisement depends on its size. more

2. A small advertisement in running text without logo, graphics, etc. As before, you can also publish your Internet small advertisement as a small advertisement in the "News".
