Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Faculty II - Institute of Chemistry / Chair of Organometallic Chemistry

Research Associate (Postdoc) - salary grade 13 TV-L Berliner Hochschulen

Part-time is may be possible

Working field:

  • Collaboration in a project network for optimized material development for technical H2 generation through improved oxygen evolution reaction electrodes
  • Research focus: synthesis of new, functional catalysts for electrochemical water splitting under industially relevant conditions with emphasis on the discovery of new intermetallics and the understanding of their structure-activity relationship, as well as the underlying physicochemical mechanisms
  • Preparation of regular reports and presentations on the progress of the research project and participation in collaborative work with the project partners, as well as preparation of scientific papers and conference materials (e.g. posters and presentation materials)


  • Successfully completed scientific university studies (master's degree, diploma or equivalent) and doctorate in chemistry with a focus on materials chemistry and electrochemistry
  • Proven expertise in the synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials and solid-state catalysts
  • Profound theoretical and experimental knowledge of the current state of the art in the field of water splitting is necessary, as the work is part of a collaborative project and therefore no long training period can be granted
  • A solid understanding of electrochemistry and catalysis
  • Practical experience in the fields of electrocatalysis, thin film fabrication and electrolyzers
  • Relevant experience in the use of modern measurement techniques including X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, spectroscopy (e.g., X-ray absorption spectroscopy, photoelectron spectroscopy)
  • Knowledge in synthesis of molecular precursors is an advantage
  • Good knowledge of German and/or English required; willingness to acquire the respective missing language skills
