Dear ifeffit mailing list users,
the group of Prof. Grunwaldt at the Institute for Chemical Technology and Polymer Chemistry of the Karlsruher Insitute of Technology is seeking for a

Postdoctoral Fellow in Operando Spectroscopy

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is the result of the merger of the University of Karlsruhe and the Research Center, Karlsruhe. It is a unique institution in Germany, which combines the mission of a university with that of a large-scale research center of the Helmholtz Association. With 8000 employees and an annual budget of EUR 650 million, KIT is one of the largest research and education institutions worldwide.

The Institute for Technical Chemistry and Polymer Chemistry (ICTP) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Southern Germany has an exciting opportunity for a 

Postdoctoral Fellow in Operando Spectroscopy

for in situ characterization of heterogeneous catalysts in our catalysis laboratories at synchrotron radiation sources. Are you interested to work at the interface of physical chemistry and questions relevant to catalysis?

The position is focused on the physico-chemical characterization of catalysts, mainly the identification and characterization of the active catalytic sites by means of X-ray absorption spectroscopy in combination with other spectroscopic methods like UV/Vis, FTIR and Raman techniques. The development of spectroscopic measurement cells as well as the realization of the according infrastructure are highly relevant for this work, which will be conducted in close cooperation with synchrotron radiation facilities such as ANKA (Karlsruhe), DESY (Hamburg), ESRF (Grenoble), and SLS (Switzerland). 

A PhD in chemistry, physics, chemical engineering or a related scientific field is a prerequisite for this position. Knowledge and experience with spectroscopic methods, mainly X-ray absorption in combination with other techniques, in catalysis is mandatory. 

Enthusiastic applicants with good English language knowledge should contact Prof. Dr. Jan-Dierk Grunwaldt (grunwaldt at kit.edu) for further information or visit the homepage http://www.itcp.uni-karlsruhe.de.

KIT is pursuing a gender equality policy. Women are therefore particularly encouraged to apply. If qualified, handicapped applicants will be preferred.

Please send your application including a CV, reference letters and publication list until 30.09.2010 to the Karlsruhe Institute of Technologie (KIT), Institute for Chemical Technology and Polymer Chemistry, Prof. Dr. Jan-Dierk Grunwaldt, Kaiserstr. 12, D-76131 Karlsruhe.

On behalf of Prof. Grunwaldt,
Matthias Bauer
