PhD Studentships / Doktorandenstellen

PhD Students

Model Catalysis, Surface Science, Electrocatalysis, Ionic Liquids

Applications are invited for PhD student positions in surface science, model catalysis, electrocatalysis and ionic liquids at the University Erlangen-Nuremberg (Physical Chemistry II, Prof. Jörg Libuda).

Using advanced surface science methods, (spectro)electrochemical techniques, reactor studies, in-situ and operando spectroscopy, the group studies the mechanisms and kinetics of chemical reactions at surfaces and interfaces. We aim at understanding processes in heterogeneous catalysis, nanotechnology, and energy technology at the molecular level. Our research bridges fundamental and applied research by advanced spectroscopy from ultrahigh-vacuum to realistic conditions.

All projects are embedded into an interdisciplinary cooperation, involving partners from science, engineering, and chemical industry.

The Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nürnberg is among the top-ranked Universities in chemistry research in Germany. We offer leading-edge projects, state-of-the-art equipment and excellent working conditions.

We expect flexibility and commitment, but also communication skills and the capability to work in a team.

For PhD applications, a diploma or master degree in chemistry, physics, chemical engineering, or materials science is required. Experience in surface science, heterogeneous catalysis, electrochemistry or with ionic liquids is not mandatory.

The university promotes gender equality and aims at increasing the fraction of women in science. Therefore female scientists are invited to apply. Handicapped persons are preferred if equally qualified. Please send your CV / list of publication / references / summary of research activities to:
