The Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion (MPI CEC) in Mülheim an der Ruhr studies the fundamental chemical processes for energy storage in chemical molecules.
Limited for the duration of a project (03 / 2025), the Department of Heterogeneous Reactions is searching for a Postdoctoral Researcher (m / f / d) - catalyst testing and characterization.
Within the scope of the project, solutions for a decarbonized energy supply have to be developed. In this context, catalysts for the decomposition of ammonia have to be characterized and their catalytic performances have to be investigated.
Single and multiple measuring setups are available for the screening and for the investigation of long-term stabilities.
The characterization of the catalysts is an important part that must be carried out accurately. The knowledge-based optimization of the synthesis, that will be fulfilled by the cooperation partners, relies on the results and requires good communication and teamwork.
The project cooperates with universities, research institutes as well as industries.
We offer an international, dynamic working environment in a renowned research institute, family-friendly jobs and flexible working hours.
Remuneration is according to TVöD (federal government), in line with your qualifications and professional experience. In addition, the usual social benefits of the public service (federal service) are granted.
The Max Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals.
Furthermore, the Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.
