Research Assist­ant - 0.66 work­ing time - salary grade 13 TV-L Ber­liner Hoch­schu­len

under the reserve that funds are gran­ted

In 2011 the Cluster of Excel­lence “Uni­fy­ing Con­cepts in Cata­lysis” (Uni­Cat) and the chem­ical com­pany BASF SE foun­ded the new joint lab Bas­Cat, an aca­demic insti­tu­tion includ­ing about 20 sci­ent­ists (PhDs, Postdocs) at Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin. Het­ero­gen­eous cata­lysis is cru­cial for meet­ing the chal­lenges of our future. The part­ners of Bas­Cat are ded­ic­ated to improve our fun­da­mental under­stand­ing of het­ero­gen­eous cata­lysis, to trans­fer this under­stand­ing to a new rational design concept for indus­tri­ally rel­ev­ant cata­lysts, and to bring these cata­lysts to applic­a­tion in industry.

Work­ing field:

The research pro­ject is ded­ic­ated to het­ero­gen­eous cata­lysis and car­ried out by multi-dis­cip­lin­ary teams. The work con­sists of eval­u­ation of cata­lysts for syn­thesis gas con­ver­sion and cor­res­pond­ing kin­etic stud­ies. Cata­lytic and kin­etic exper­i­ments are car­ried out using par­al­lel test­ing units. The obtained exper­i­mental data will be used to pro­pose, for­mu­late and test kin­etic mod­els and are rel­ev­ant to find physico-chem­ical cor­rel­a­tions between mater­ial prop­er­ties and cata­lyt­ical beha­vior. The derived mod­els will be used for the design of lar­ger cata­lytic react­ors. The oppor­tun­ity to obtain a PhD degree might be given.


Suc­cess­fully com­pleted uni­versity degree (Mas­ter, Dip­lom or equi­val­ent) in chem­istry, chem­ical or pro­cess engin­eer­ing with above-aver­age suc­cess. You have expert­ise in indus­trial chem­istry and an in-depth under­stand­ing of het­ero­gen­eous cata­lysis, prefer­ably in cata­lytic syn­thesis gas con­ver­sion at high-pres­sure con­di­tions. Prac­tical exper­i­ence in plan­ning and con­duct­ing cata­lytic and kin­etic tests is expec­ted. Prac­tical exper­i­ence in kin­etic mod­el­ing and pro­cess sim­u­la­tion is help­ful. Flu­ency in Ger­man and Eng­lish is con­sidered as a plus.

How to ap­ply:

Please send your applic­a­tion with the ref­er­ence num­ber and the usual doc­u­ments (e.g. a cover let­ter, CV, copy of the cer­ti­fic­ates of your Mas­ter with tran­script of records, a sum­mary of your mas­ter thesis, and a pub­lic­a­tion list, all com­bined in a single pdf file, max. 5 MB) by email to Emanuela Tous­saint (

To ensure equal oppor­tun­it­ies between women and men, applic­a­tions by women with the required qual­i­fic­a­tions are expli­citly desired. Qual­i­fied indi­vidu­als with dis­ab­il­it­ies will be favored. The TU Ber­lin val­ues the diversity of its mem­bers and is com­mit­ted to the goals of equal oppor­tun­it­ies.
